Deontay Wilder's Trainer Talks Preparing For Tyson Fury

Getting ready for Tyson Fury is no easy task, according to Deontay Wilder's trainer Jay Deas.

During a media workout in Los Angeles, Deas spoke on how Wilder has been preparing for the former unified world heavyweight champion. Deas admitted that he and Wilder are having a difficult time preparing for Fury as the British fighter doesn't have a singular style and is able to adapt and fight in however manner that bests suits him in a fight. Wilder and Fury are set to fight for the WBC world heavyweight title on December 1.

"Tyson Fury is kind of like a Rubik's cube. But a Rubik's cube can be solved. Fury is a very versatile fighter who can move, he can box and fight from lots of distances. He's the total package as a fighter and on top of that he's strong-willed mentally. The tough thing with preparing for Tyson Fury is that even he doesn't know exactly what he's going to do in there. He can fight lefty, righty, dirty or clean. We're working on being prepared for all of these things and more," Deas said.

While Wilder has fought top contenders and former champions such as Luis Ortiz and Bermane Stiverne in the past year, Fury has been working his way back to title contention after being out of the sport for two-and-a-half years, scoring easy wins over Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta.

Fightful will have live coverage of the December 1 pay-per-view, taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Wilder vs. Fury is set to headline the event, which will also feature a unified WBA and IBF junior middleweight title defense by Jarrett Hurd when he takes on Jason Welborn.
