By Paul Murphy-
Frank Warren insists that his charge Tyson Fury is the ‘full package’ and will beat Deontey Wilder even easier when they next meet. Fury is coming off an easy two round stoppage win against Tom Schwatz whom he stopped in the U.S last weekend.
After Anthony Joshua’s unexpected defeat early this month, the next big fight fans want to see is that of Tyson Fury and Deontey Wilder. That will come after another good fight taking place on July 20 between Dillian Whyte and Oscar Rivas. Boxing fans will also look forward to this fight, but the one that intrigues most fans now is the rematch between Fury and Wilder. It upstages even Joshua’s rematch with Andy Ruiz Jnr who took his world titles on June 1 and which will likely take place ebfore Fury and Wilder meet again.
if Whyte beats Rivas convincingly, many fans will also want to see Dillian Whyte have a go at the world champion, seeing how quickly Whyte is developing into main world beater in the heavyweight landscape. Whyte will be expected to cave into Wilder’s big right hand after a tough fight, but not so many are sure Wilder can beat Fury when they meet. Warren is for one most convinced Wilder will fall short when he comes up against his man in their awaited rematch.
After seeing the smooth way Fury destroyed Schwatz, he is gaining more and more confidence in Fury’s style, which he is convinced will create a lot of problems for any heavyweight in the world. Fury is one of the most mobile men of his size in the heavyweight division . Fury is due to fight U.S WBC king Deontey Wilder, who recently destroyed Dominic Breazeale last month and faces Louis Ortiz in a September rematch after stopping the strong Cuban in 10 thrilling rounds.
The build up for the fight which is nearly a year away will keep boxing fans eager for it. Both men will already be gearing their training in preparation for that fight which neither of the men can be fully confident of victory. Tyson Fury’s size, speed, and boxing IQ will cause any heavyweight in the world too many problems, whilst Deontey Wilder has the phenomenal punch that could change everything. The veteran promoter remains confident that Fury will win their rematch fight after the first ended in controversy when the two men were given a draw for their competitive fight at the Los Angelis Staples Centre last December.

Warren told Boxing Scene said:
“I think Tyson’s got his number, I really do,” Warren told BoxingScene.com . Warren described Fury as an athletic fighter with ”phenomenal footwork ”, adding that he has the whole package.
“Deontay can’t out-box him. We’ve seen that. He won’t out-box him. He’s probably the hardest-punching heavyweight in the last 25 years. If he catches you, as he did catch Tyson, you’re in trouble. He’s a phenomenal puncher. I always say a good boxer will always beat a big puncher.
“Tyson can bang himself. He can whack himself. You know, the last round, when he got off the floor, he had Deontay in a bit of trouble. He wasn’t having it all go his own way. So, I think that level playing field, he’s gonna have another fight under his belt, he’s gonna be, I think, 50 percent better than he was when he fought Deontay.”
Fury will return to the ring September 21 or October 5. His opponent hasn’t been chosen for a fight that could be held at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Wilder is headed for a rematch with Luis Ortiz (31-1, 26 KOs, 2 NC), whom Wilder beat by 10th-round technical knockout in March 2018, either in October or November.
Whomever Fury fights, Warren won’t worry that he’ll get knocked off before reaching a lucrative rematch with Wilder.
“He’s very athletic, he’s got phenomenal footwork, he’s got great hand-eye coordination,” Warren said. “He’s a great defensive boxer, he’s a good offensive fighter. He’s got the whole package. I just think whoever he’s in there with, they’re gonna struggle, whoever it is. And if he’s a hundred percent, and he’s where he should be, then there’s no doubt about it, in my mind, that he’ll do a job on him.”
Wilder has always expressed disappointment that the initially agreed rematch between himself and Fury scheduled for last spring did not take place. The reigning American world champion is convinced he will gain revenge on Fury when the next meet for their rematch. Both men will in the meantime have interim fights that will contribute to sharpening their tools until the finally meet.
