Tyson Fury to ditch defensive tactics and go for the jugular in Deontay Wilder rematch

0


Tyson Fury is set to change his tactics when he adopts Deontay Wilder on February 22 in a sequel to the 2018 signing.

The Gypsy King has beaten coach Ben Davison and is taking a more offensive approach under new coach SugarHill Steward.

Fury boxed the last time of & # 39; s back foot in Los Angeles and seems to be cruising to a decisive victory before he & # 39; e 12th was dropped by Wilder.

Many fans felt that Fury was robbed and the 31-year-old changed his tactics for the rematch to prevent a repeat.

Sportsmail looks at what this change of approach will mean …

Jabbing and counter-punching

Fury used the jab defensively in & # 39; the last fight and used it for his distance from & # 39; e Keeping Bronze Bomber.

The jab prevented Wilder from getting into any pattern of crime while Fury waited for an opening to explode.

Fury admitted he looked the last time to out-box his opponent, but admitted his approach failed.

The linear heavyweight champion is now looking to get on & # 39; s forefoot and jab more aggressively to make an opening.

Fury was first in the & # 39; jab in December 2018, causing problems for Wilder and allowed the Gypsy King's opponent to & # 39; to take out an outside.

The 31-year-old may want to go for the knockout, but he has to be careful of what comes the other way.

The Gypsy King wants to avoid a demolition match because of Wilder's formidable power, but his intelligence in the ring should allow him to choose his moments and hurt the Americans.

Wilder's approach to swinging hooks opens up holes in his defense which Fury must capitalize on as he goes for a knockout win.

Counterpunching has been an integral part of Fury & # 39; s plan lately, but can be less used in these fights as he continues to & # 39; e offense.

Standing down and waiting for opportunities was the modus operandi for great periods of the last fight and Fury executed the plan well.

Fury has since blamed his defensive approach to the fight as the reason he failed to win.

With an emphasis on aggression, Fury risks risking himself and providing Wilder with the chance he needs to win the fight.

Fury will have to take laps during the fight to recover and counterpunching will allow him to pose another threat during those down periods.

Footwork and movement

Every boxing fan knows that Wilder has incredible power. The American has a 95 percent knockout rate and only needs one punch to complete the fight, as he demonstrated in his rematch with Luis Ortiz.

Wilder had lost almost every round in the seventh round, but landed a colossal right hand to deepen the veteran.

Ortiz took the center of the ring during the fight, as Fury intended, but Wilder moved his feet around the Cuban against the & # 39; to pinch knees and land the telling blow.

If Fury suffers something from Ortiz's second defeat to Wilder, it's that his move will be vital to defeat Wilder.

Fury's footwork has been praised by fans and connoisseurs throughout his career and he will have to maintain his high standards in just over two weeks.

His fancy footwork even impressed new coach SugarHill Steward, who claims that Fury's movement is unrivaled in the heavyweight division.

Fury's movement and skill has seen him compared to legendary heavyweight Larry Holmes.

The Gypsy King demonstrated his Matrix-like main move against Tom Schwartz, causing the German to miss seven consecutive punches.

Although Schwartz is not on the same level as Wilder, the savvy movement shown by Fury will be necessary if he is to avoid being caught by the toughest hitter in his division.

Fury wants to command the center of the ring and push for a knockout, but he can't pay it to be pulled into a slugfest with an opponent who has power in abundance.

Fury & # 39; s intelligence, combined with his head and foot movement, can help the fighter prevent them from falling again.

If the linear heavyweight champion can prevent him from riding, then he is Wilder more than capable.

Fury has won by knockout in 20 of his 30 fights and will be sure that, if given the chance, Wilder can add to the list.

Restore Wilder and avoid the judges

Wilder likes to hold on to his opponents and force them back to the knees, where he can release an array of punches.

Fury wants to avoid being caught by Wilder, despite his fantastic moves, and will have to force the American back.

Wilder uses his long arms to get to the front foot, forcing his opponents to retreat to escape his hill-makers.

Fury needs to get Wilder on his back foot and absorb the Bronze Bomber some of his stamps.

Making wilder thinking about what is coming his way can make him uneasy and prevent Fury from having to defend an attack.

Most recently, Fury used a defensive strategy and trusted the judges to score the fight in his favor.

After many claims he was robbed by the judges, Fury and his coach are determined to take the decision out of their hands.

Steward told iFL TV: & # 39; That was a risk Tyson had in & # 39; the first fight took in not stepping on the gas and trying to win points.

& # 39; He doesn't want that again. I do not want it. I didn't grow up that way. Emanuel (Steward) always taught me, & # 39; get the knockout & # 39 ;.

& # 39; That's the only 100 percent way you know you've won the fight by beating it out & # 39; to take the hands of & # 39; judges.

& # 39; I thought Tyson did enough to win the fight, though he was beaten twice. I'm not crazy about the decision, & # 39; I was always taught, & # 39; don't let it be owned by & # 39; e judges & # 39;. & # 39;

As part of his strategy to secure a knockout win over Wilder, Fury aims to weigh significantly more than he did last time.

The target weight for the Gypsy King is 19th, almost a stone more than he previously expected.

Condition

In preparation for his first fight with Wilder, Fury fought just two opponents after a three-year absence.

His long lay-off, combined with bad opponents in his warm-up spirits, led to serious concerns about how physically fit Fury was.

In the build up to this fight, Fury has fought a higher standard of opponents.

Otto Wallin and Tom Schwarz were hardly the most challenging opponents, but Fury dispatched with both.

Fans were worried when Fury caught his eye against Wallin, with some suggesting that another doctor may have stopped the fight, but the Gypsy King prevailed.

Despite his scare against Wallin, Fury is in a better position to counter Wilder than before.

He will likely have improved his stamina and will be able to deliver powerful punches until the 12th round.

Fury was frustrated lately after not having the stamina to knock out his opponent, a problem he maintains he has dealt with.

He told BT Sport: & # 39; I didn't have the energy to finish him, I've seen a lot of stuff that I will expose and that I saw last time but couldn't pull the trigger.

& # 39; This time he will really fight the Gypsy King and I will take him out. & # 39;

Wilder only went the distance against one other opponent, Bermane Stiverne, whom he defeated in a rematch two years later.

The lack of experience of & # 39; the 34-year-old in & # 39; the latest rounds could work to Fury & # 39; s advantage, in order for him to be able to test the condition of the Americans.

Wilder will want to end the fight early, as he usually does, so the later the fight goes, the more it should happen to Fury.

With improved stamina and a striking intention, Fury will be able to deliver on his promise and beat Wilder.
