(Video) Deontay Wilder risks injury with mud buggy joyride ahead of Tyson Fury trilogy bout

Posted by

Deontay Wilder has shared a video of him speeding around on a buggy, just weeks out from his heavyweight title fight with Tyson Fury.

Wilder held the WBC world championship for some time, with Fury being the man to dethrone him when the pair met in a rematch at the start of 2020.

The American went to war in order to secure a third fight, one which was initially due to be held in July before Fury contracted COVID-19 while in camp.

The bout will now take place on October 9th, with Wilder coming up with a rather unusual way to prepare for it…

Considering the risk of injury in driving at those speeds in an off-road buggy, this is not particularly responsible behaviour from Wilder.

This is a fight that has already been postponed once, the fans, and Fury camp, would likely not tolerate another date change, were he to get injured.

Wilder is well within his rights to have a bit of fun, even while in camp, but he ought to put a little more thought into how he does it in future…
