The biggest heavyweight showdown between the American Deontay Wilder and British star Tyson Fury right around the corner and boxing fans can’t wait for the fight. Wilder will be defending his WBC title at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
There are a lot of fight predictions going around as who is going to win the fight, while Wilder is the betting favourite any many former world champions and current boxing stars are picking the American heavyweight to knock out Fury, there is a fair share of people who expect Fury to knick a decision.
Legendary trainer Freddie Roach, however, expects Tyson Fury to knockout Wilder. Fury is training in Roach’s widely recognised and prestigious Wildcard boxing gym and Roach will also be serving as Fury’s cutman in the corner on the fight night.
“He’s mentally ready. I think you’ll see the best Tyson Fury ever. We had a great training camp, he’s really happy,” Roach said. “He’s smiling every day. I love when I have a fighter like that because they’re in a good mood for a reason.”
Roach also predicts that Fury will knock Wilder out.
“The biggest thing is that we can’t go to the ropes,” the trainer said. “Then we might be a sitting target because the ropes will slow his movement down. So we’re gonna move and use the middle of the ring, and I do believe that we’ll knock him out in the late rounds.”
