Deontay Wilder focused in preparation for upcoming fight against Tyson Fury
Deontay Wilder talks about his mindset as he prepares to defend his heavyweight title against Tyson Fury.
WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder looked focused and ready to go during his media day at the Churchill Boxing Club in Santa Monica, California. Wilder (40-0,39 KOs) will make his eighth title defense when he takes on former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (27-0,19 KOs) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Dec. 1st.
The mind can be a powerful weapon, this is the same weapon that Wilder has been using as he prepares to take on Fury.
“You know more because of your mindset,” said Wilder. “We all can change our mindsets in ways of doing things, it’s how you make a decision. Many times we would have made a decision, but we changed our minds because our mindset have changed about that situation. It’s the same thing about anything else. We’re so powerful man, we don’t understand how powerful we are.”
The heavyweight champ known as the “Bronze Bomber” insists that it takes a lot of “me time” to able to meditate, visualize and focus.
“Right now I can take myself out of this environment and it’ll be just me,” said Wilder. “My me time is when I’m alone, that’s my me time. When I’m alone and in my surroundings.”
Wilder showed quick hands as he popped the mitts with a few stiff jabs,straight rights, left hooks and right uppercuts. The members of the media surrounding the ring and the cameras pointed at him were no distraction, with his eyes zeroed in on the mitts in front of him.
“Im gonna f–k him (Fury) up.” said Wilder.
