Wilder has not fought since his only career defeat to Fury in Las Vegas in February 2020, but is back in training with new coach Malik Scott and is ‘working harder’ than ever.
‘If he can’t beat Fury the way he’s planned now, then he just can’t beat the man, but I believe he will. I’ve seen things before, and I’ve seen the way it is now, ”Finkel said.
‘I also remember that he was only the underdog once and that was the first [Bermane] Stiverne fought, and he was disciplined and did what he had to do. I think he just believed there was no way Fury could beat him, and it upset his balance, I think that’s the best way to put it.
He had a lot of things to think about. I don’t think he should have told them. He did, he meant them, but now he’s more like, “Okay, now I just have to prove it. I can’t talk,” and that’s what he’s going to do. ‘
