Fans are just a few weeks away from witnessing the biggest boxing showdown of the year that is the Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury fight. The two boxers will clash for the WBC heavyweight strap on December 1 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Both heavyweights have each claimed that they will come out with the victory, although it was the defending champion who is billed as the favourite to win the match. But ahead of his title-defense, boxing fans have expressed their concern on Wilder after footage of his recent training surfaced on social media.

Wilder has yet to taste a single loss in his decorated boxing career. He currently holds a perfect 40-0 win-loss card, with 39 of these wins coming off a knockout. ‘The Bronze Bomber’ captured the WBC heavyweight title on January 2015 against Haitian-Canadian opponent Bermane Stiverne in the lone unanimous decision win of his career, to become the first Amercian heavyweight champ in nine years. He went on to defend this title for seven consecutive times.
His next assignment would be no easy opponent. Just like him, the 30-year old Fury is undefeated and has won his last two outings after returning in the boxing scene following a two-year layoff. But Wilder warned his challenger that he has transformed himself into a killer ahead of this massive clash.
“I’m feeling wonderful. My mindset and body have changed. I don’t want anyone to ask me about Anthony Joshua. He was a coward and that’s that. I don’t have a message to Anthony Joshua, it’s all about Tyson Fury. I feel like a killer. I’m transformed into a killer. Nothing at all that concerns me or scares me about Fury. I’m the best in the world.”
Well, some fans have to disagree with this claim. The American boxer came under fire after fans saw an unlikely Wilder in a training clip uploaded on social media. Watch the video below:

This video of Wilder gave fans a cause for concern about his upcoming showdown with the British boxer.
The Gypsy King has admitted that Wilder’s brutal punch power would be the biggest obstacle for him to get the win. But if this is what the champion is showing in training, then Fury can be more confident coming into the fight.
“I want this to be one of the greatest comebacks in boxing history, similar to George Foreman, Muhammad Ali and the other great comeback fighters,” said Fury.
