(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Tyson Fury has been ‘hurt more’ by the delay of his world title fight as Deontay Wilder won’t lose his burning desire for redemption, says Carl Froch.
I was really disappointed with the postponement, because it’s a fight that I was looking forward to. Even though it seemed like it would be a one-sided fight for Fury, you can never ever just write any man off when he’s a huge puncher like Wilder.
This delay is definitely going to hurt Fury more. They have both been out of the ring for the same amount of time, but Wilder is still going to be hungry, he’s got a point to prove. He’s been absolutely ridiculed and written off by loads of people. He’s been abused really on social media for a long time.
I think Wilder is going to be like a man on fire, training for this fight, whereas Fury fought him the first time when he wasn’t in shape and still got a draw. Then in the rematch he absolutely battered him. It was a one-sided whooping, so Fury could be thinking, ‘Do I really need this?’
He’ll know he can get knocked out by Wilder, so that will make him train hard, but I think this delay is more of a concern for Fury than it is for Wilder.
