Tyson Fury may currently be slated to take on Otto Wallin on September 14, but he’s expected the be lined up for the Deontay Wilder rematch early next year barring any catastrophic setbacks. During a visit to ESPN this week, Fury claims that he’ll go into the Wilder rematch knowing that he can’t expect to take a decision no matter how many rounds he wins, so he’ll just change his style and look for the knockout.

“I clearly won the last fight. I outboxed him in every round apart from the two rounds he knocked me down in. How do you lose if you win ten and lose two?

“It is clearly not possible to get a points victory.

“So, I have to change my style which I am happy with. I have never been as strong, never been punching as hard. I’ve never been as confident as I am today.”

Fury would continue by reassuring the world that he’ll knock Wilder out without a doubt when they meet at the top of 2020. But in the meantime Wilder has a November 9th rematch scheduled with Luis Ortiz, and that certainly could turn out to be a dangerous fight for Wilder before we even get back to Fury.
