Unbeaten Heavyweight Johnny Fisher believes that Tyson Fury can halt Deontay Wilder in four rounds when the pair meet in their trilogy this summer.
Fury and Wilder will meet for a third time on July 24 at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas after ‘The Bronze Bomber’ won his arbitration case to face the Brit again after losing his WBC Heavyweight world title in seven rounds in February 2020.
And Fisher (2-0, 2 KOs), who has won his first two fights against Matt Gordon and Phil Williams by stoppage has backed his compatriot to win in emphatic style.
“I think Wilder’s got to go for it,” the 22-year-old told proboxing-fans.com on Monday.
“He’s got a decent jab I must give it to him, a lot of people don’t give him credit, he’s got a nice, measured jab.
“But, he’s got to go for it, he’s got to bring the fight to Fury, because his power is in his right hand and that’s the damage.
“He’s not going to outbox Fury, but I think Fury’s got to do the same as well.
“It all depends what sort of mindset Wilder’s in, because judging by that press conference when he had the earphones in it didn’t look good.
“I’m hoping Fury gets it done, I reckon he can do it within four rounds.”
Fisher, who signed a promotional deal with Matchroom Boxing in September after inking a management deal with S-JAM Boxing is set to fight for the third time at Fight Camp against Danny Whittaker, after original opponent Josh Sandland withdrew and will have head trainer Mark Tibbs in his corner for the first time.
‘The Romford Bull’ has been sparring with English champion, Fabio Wardley as well as managerial stablemate, Joe Joyce ahead of his showdown with Carlos Takam on July 24 and the Essex native admits he is grateful especially to the ‘Juggernaut’ for helping him to progress, even prior to his debut.

“I owe so much to Joe Joyce, because he’s developed me,” Fisher said.
“When I first joined and started sparring him a couple of years ago, I was a complete amateur, not even a good amateur.
“I was just raw, I was strong, I had good fundamentals and power, but if it wasn’t for Joe Joyce I wouldn’t be developing the way I am.
“The spars I had before my debut, he was going southpaw for me against Matt Gordon and we sparred a bit more after that and in Vegas as well, so he’s been really, really helpful for me.”
