Tyson Fury’s Trilogy with Deontay Wilder “Changed” Him, Says Coach

Damaging Trilogy Takes its Toll

Tyson Fury's coach, Malik Scott, has stated that the "damaging" trilogy series with Deontay Wilder has had a profound impact on Fury. The heavyweights first clashed in 2018, resulting in a draw despite Fury being dropped twice. They then had a rematch in 2020, with Wilder being knocked down and stopped in round seven. Their October 2021 trilogy was hailed as their best yet, with Fury winning after being knocked down twice and scoring three knockdowns himself. However, Scott believes that the intense battles have taken a toll on Fury.

Fury's Approaching Fight for the Undisputed Crown

As Fury, 35, prepares for the biggest fight of his career against Oleksandr Usyk, 36, for the undisputed crown, Scott expresses concern about Fury's condition. The highly anticipated four-belt unification fight was initially scheduled for December 23 but has been delayed to February due to Fury's grueling encounter with ex-UFC champion Francis Ngannou. Scott believes that Fury has endured significant wear and tear on his body, not only from the Wilder fights but also from previous bouts with Derek Chisora and Steve Cunningham. Despite being 35 years young, Fury's coach acknowledges that time is undefeated.
