Wilder-Fury III How will it happen?

Published

on

Deontay Wilder has been chasing Tyson Fury ever since he\’s defeated in February, but the tides have changed.
However, the chances of getting the trilogy are getting slimmer now that Anthony Joshua has agreed to fight the fellow British champion once he defeated Kubrat Pulev this week.
It means that the heavyweight division is going for the undisputed champion next.
So how can Wilder come in the picture and steal Fury away?
Well, he can do nothing in particular but to hope that Joshua will be defeated by Pulev come December 12.
It is the only scenario for Wilder to make the trilogy into a reality.
Why?
Simple because if Joshua loses, he is no longer worthy of being Fury\’s opponent. He will lose his three belts making him not the ideal opponent for the WBC champion. Also, he will go.
Wilder will be the most suitable as he is the best contender available to fight Fury.
Bob Arum further elaborated on the possible situations.
\”If Pulev beats Joshua, there\’s no Joshua fight for Tyson Fury because Joshua has a rematch clause.
\”At that point, Fury is out there looking for opponents, and I\’d think the best available opponent would be Wilder.\”
The legendary promoter also added that he thinks Pulev will knock out Joshua.
\”Pulev can corner Joshua and take him out. I believe not only is Pulev going to win the fight, but he\’s going to win it by knockout.\”
All Wilder can do now is to train and watch come December 12 to see the fate of his 2021. Since February, he has been out of the ring, and he\’s not making much noise than when he was the champ and still unbeaten.
Will we see a much improve Wilder? Will he learn to box, not just to lean on his knockout power? All of these are still a mystery as Wilder also became silent on social media on his training.
Nonetheless, it will be decided on Saturday (US TIME).

Warriors, Lakers get crucial win in tight West playoff race

In a tight race for a playoff spot in the West, the defending champions Golden State Warriors and the lost glory-seeking Los Angeles Lakers got much-needed wins.

The Warriors outplayed the visiting Philadelphia 76ers for their third straight win behind Jordan Poole’s 33 points. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 50 points to counter Joel Embiid’s 46-piece.

With the dub, they currently sit at the sixth spot with a 39-26 win-loss record.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers went .500 (37-37) for the first time this season after defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder, 116-111. Anthony Davis top scored with 37 points along with 15 boards.

LA is now at the eighth spot but still in a pressure pack position as teams below them are just one-game behind.

There are less than 20 games left before the regular season comes to an end.

Fury-Usyk world heavyweight unification fails to push through

The much-anticipated world heavyweight unification bout hit a major blow after Oleksandr Usyk’s manager Alexander Krassyuk said that it will not push through on April 29.

“No matter how much Usyk compromised, he was pushed for more,”  Krassyuk said on ESPN.

However, Tyson Fury answered back that it was Usyk to blame for the failure of the mega fight.

According to his promoter Frank Warren, the demand for a rematch clause of Usyk caused the breakdown of the fight.

“I convinced Tyson to take the rematch. Then we got into how the money will be split in the rematch. The rematch has become a sideshow. Why can’t this be overcome if Usyk wants the fight? All the splits were agreed. Who walks in first was agreed. If it’s a great fight then we will make the rematch,” Warren said in an interview with talkSPORT.

This was supposed to mark Fury’s return to boxing after initially retiring.

Paul George out for the rest of regular season due to knee sprain

It started with a jaw-dropping 360 slam off a baseline cut by Paul George. Indeed a crazy play that sent  the internet into a frenzy but several plays later another thing went viral involving George, a nasty knee injury in a rebound play.

Seen in the replays was the awkward position of his knee when he landed. He was carried out in the game and after further evaluation he will miss two to three weeks due to a sprained right knee.

It means George will not be available to play in the remainder of the regular season but there are hopes he will be ready in some time in the playoffs if his reevaluation is good.

Currently, his Los Angeles Clippers are fifth in the West but there’s no safe place yet as the standing in their conference is very tight from no. 5 up to the 10th spot.

With this, the Clippers will rely heavily on Kawhi Leonard and their newly-required Russell Westbrook to finish the regular season in a good spot.
