Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder 3: Bronze Bomber's coach reveals 'belly' game plan


Deontay Wilder's assistant coach Don House has said that he will be aiming to land body shots on Tyson Fury when the two fight.

Wilder and Fury have their trilogy fight on October 9 at Nevada. The bout almost did not take place with the Gypsy King being scheduled to take on Anthony Joshua in August.

However, an arbitration judge ruled that he would have to fight Wilder. The bout was scheduled for July 24 but had to be postponed due to a case of coronavirus in Fury's camp.

As of now, the fight seems on course and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Wilder's new assistant House spoke about his gameplan for the bout. Speaking to 78SPORTSTV, he said: 

"Malik [Scott] has done a wonderful job with him. "Malik [Scott] has done a wonderful job with him.

"He’s done a wonderful job—those body shots. I’d rather get hit in the head than the body. Deontay has always been focused on knocking guys out to the head.

"We’re not going to do that in this fight. We’re going to box him and going to break down the body.

"He [Wilder] loves the body. It’s a bigger target, and you’ve seen Fury’s body on how big a target it is. It’s an easy target to hit.

"We’re going to maintain and stay in that area, and put the money in the bank, then break him down and knock him out."


Wilder's first fight with Fury ended in a draw while the second saw the latter win via technical knockout.

The Bronze Bomber will be eager to exact revenge for last year's defeat while also being the first individual to defeat Fury.

Fans will be eagerly awaiting to see the duo box it out in Nevada and while Fury has been labelled the favourite, Wilder should not be written off.
