“Not worried at all [about taking a big punch]. It’s what I get paid to do, train hard and fight hard.” Feeling ready now for feb22 we going on a trip on our favourite rocket shipA post shared by Tyson Fury (@gypsyking101) on Feb 13, 2020 at 9:23pm PSTFury stepped back from boxing in 2019 to venture into professional wrestling. He defeated Braun Strowman in his WWE debut, at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia, by count-out, and the 31-year-old believes the training regime he went through ahead of his wrestling bow has given him the upper hand against Wilder.”[The training for wrestling] has helped massively for sure,” Fury said. “There’s a massive difference, almost unbelievable, between training for something like that and a world title fight. It’s more about agility and speed, definitely.” Former unified world champion Fury thought he had done enough to win on points at Staples Center, though two knockdowns from Wilder in the ninth and 12th rounds, respectively, ultimately proved costly.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearThere has been no love lost between the fighters in the lead-up to Saturday’s rematch, but Fury is convinced he has the upper hand, adding that he does not fear taking another punch of the caliber that Wilder landed in the final round in December 2018.”He’s on the back foot already, he’s running scared,” Fury told Omnisport.

It’s what I train for and what I get paid for. It was lovely to do some work for the pay.”It was a lapse in concentration. I feel fantastic and the training camp has gone well, perfectly.
