Andy Lee, the assistant coach of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, expects to see a radically different Deontay Wilder when both boxers share the ring for the third time.
“I think this is a very dangerous fight,” Lee said ” I think Wilder will be much fresher, so this is a very dangerous fight waiting for us. He has a lot to prove. He will be incredibly motivated, preparing for this fight.”
Like Fury, Lee tested positive for COVID-19. He had the same symptoms, but he does not believe that the disease will affect the performance of the Briton in one way or another.
“When I was in America, I got sick with the coronavirus. I was together with Tyson, and we both had this disease, which served as the cancellation of the fight, “ Lee explained.
“For three or four days I felt very tired, but I didn’t lose the smell or taste, I didn’t have a fever, but this is a very serious thing that you don’t want to get sick. Especially when you are an athlete, because it will force you to withdraw from the fight. Tyson had the same thing as me, and now I feel completely fine.”
