Lennox Lewis Reveals How Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder Should Change Up Their Game Plans

Lennox Lewis Reveals How Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder Should Change Up Their Game Plans

Boxing legend Lennox Lewis has branded Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's rematch an "exciting fight" and believes both stars must shake up their respective strategies.

Fury, 31, is scheduled to clash with fierce rival Wilder for the WBC championship on 22nd February 2020 in Las Vegas.

When he was asked about the hotly-anticipated clash, Hall of Famer Lewis told CompuBox TV: "Exciting fight. Both of them have to make adjustments and come back with a different game plan.

"There's so much when it comes to boxing, the sweet science of it and when you analyse your opponent, what their weaknesses and strengths are.

"So, it's who can capitalise on those types of things. Obviously, Tyson Fury was the boxer the first fight and Deontay was the puncher.

"Obviously, if Tyson can come with some power and obviously if Deontay can come with a little more boxing.

"It's just like that, who does the work, [and] who wants it the most."

Lewis, 54, also revealed that he would rank Fury and Wilder in his top three current heavyweights in the world.

"My top three would have to be Deontay, Tyson Fury and obviously [Anthony] Joshua," the former three-time world heavyweight champ said.

"At the moment, I'm going with that order."

Fury, who last fought against Otto Wallin in September, recently split with coach Ben Davison and has since appointed Javan 'SugarHill' Steward as his new trainer.

But Wilder has since launched a scathing attack on Fury's decision to part ways with Davison, saying he is "concerned about this fight."

The 34-year-old WBC champ successfully defended his championship for the tenth time against Luis Ortiz in November.

Anthony Joshua, who recaptured the heavyweight titles against Andy Ruiz Jr earlier this month, has offered to spar with Fury ahead of his rematch with Wilder.
