World welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. will support Deontay Wilder in his upcoming rematch with Briton Tyson Fury.
“I choose Deontay. And how can I root for a dude on the other side of the ocean?” – said Spence in an interview with Barbershop Conversations. – “I watched the video of Deontay’s workouts, and he is showing great shape. Now he started hitting combinations on the body, training with someone who is his height. [с новым тренером и экс-претендентом на титул Маликом Скоттом]… Hook to the body. Hook to the head. One-two-three and stuff like that. Uppercuts. He does things that he lacked. Very often he was a fighter who only hits 1-2. And it will be great to see him change his style. Hope Deontay Wilder can get even and do what he has to.
It looks like he stayed focused all this time, practicing and getting in shape. I wish the best for him. Hopefully he gets a brutal knockout. I heard he said he was going to kill. I’m always rooting for Deontay, especially against the guy from across the ocean. I do not understand how other people can root for someone other than their compatriot. I won’t get it, because after all, Tyson Fury fights for his fans from the UK. He will never become a fighter from America. And it seems to me that this should be the case with us, but this will never happen here. Americans don’t support other Americans. It’s the opposite with us. “
