Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 2: Joseph Parker says Fury is 'more aggressive' in sparring

Joseph Parker believes we'll be seeing a new Tyson Fury this time around

Joseph Parker is mighty impressed with what he's seen and heard from Tyson Fury's sparring regime ahead of his rematch with Deontay Wilder.

The Gypsy King promised his legions of fans that he would be bringing a new game plan into the fight, aiming to be more aggressive and put the Bronze Bomber on the back foot.

In the first fight, Fury landed some good shots, but spent most of the bout evading a swinging Wilder - until the 12th round, of course.

But this time around, Fury wants to be the entertainer, the man who inflicts the punishment and Parker believes he's following up on his promises in training.

Speaking to, the Kiwi heavyweight said: "You can't just walk up and bully Wilder, he has proved he has a good chin and one of the biggest punches in the world. Hearing stories from his camp, he's one talented guy.

"That being said - and I may be wrong - but I believe Fury can pull it off by the approach he said he will do of putting on more pressure and taking it to him. I believe boxing ability beats power."

"Tyson's been sparring Guido (Vianello) at the beginning of his camp and I was there watching cheering them both on. I've seen them do many rounds in the gym in this build up and he is looking good.

"The reason I say he is going to put on more pressure is that I have seen it in camp. Coming forward, back, forward in his movement, he looks like he is implementing what he is saying he is going to do which to come forward, throw more punches, be more aggressive - I think Tyson is going to try to knock Wilder out at some stage of the fight, for sure."

Imagine the scenes in the MGM Grand Arena if Fury delivers a knockout victory.

Wilder and Fury

But Wilder proved he possesses a strong chin in his first fight against Luis Ortiz, where he recovered from seemingly the point of no return to record his biggest win to date.

Fury will have to land the sweetest punches of his career to stop the Bronze Bomber in his tracks, but he has the power and boxing skills to make that outcome a reality.

What a fight it's going to be!
