Tyson Fury Sends Deontay Wilder A (Sincere) Birthday Message

By: Sean Crose "This is a very special Happy Birthday message to me old mate Deontay 'The Bronze Bomber' Wilder. Have a fantastic day, Wilder. Thank you for the great fights that we had, the trilogy. Great, great fighter. Awesome fighter, and I hope you have a fantastic day with you and your family and I hope that God blesses you abundantly. All the best. Lots of love, from your old pal, the Gypsy King. All the best. God bless, Wilder."   https://twitter.com/i/status/1451572462672617478 They may be the biggest ring enemies this side of Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, but things finally seem to be cooling down after the third fight between WBC and lineal heavyweight king Tyson Fury and arch rival (and former WBC king) Deontay Wilder. Just weeks after their instant classic of a bout, Fury took to social media on Friday to speak directly to his former foe, who had just turned 36. Things have come a long way from where they were a short time ago. After meeting for the first time in 2018, where their battle was ruled a controversial draw, the two men met again in early 2020. Fury made easy work of the brutally hard hitting American the second time around, stopping Wilder in the seventh. Wilder made all kinds of wild accusations against Fury, and even his own team, afterwards...all of which showcased a considerable amount of bad blood. By the time the third battle rolled around, the two super sized heavyweights appeared to be the furthest things from friends. Fortunately for fans, that third match itself was explosive. Fury dropped Wilder in the third, only to have Wilder drop him twice in the fourth. The battle raged on until Fury knocked his arch rival down again in the tenth, then did so once more in eleventh, leading the referee to finally step in and end the war in Fury's favor. Wilder refused to make peace with Fury immediately after the match, but a few days later did so warmly via social media. That, coupled with Friday's Birthday Greeting, may mean the bad blood has finally vanished. They may never be the best of friends, but Fury's and Wilder's names will forever be synonymous with each other. It only makes sense that the two colorful fighters try to make the best of it. Plus, the trilogy they both took part of has been a gift to fight fans...something else the outspoken former opponents have in common.

Rolando “Rolly” Romero Downplays The Skills Of Gervonta Davis: “He’s Not That Talented”

By: Hans Themistode There’s a consensus building around Gervonta Davis, one that Rolando Romero vehemently disagrees with. By and large, Davis is known for his resounding knockout power. Having stopped all but one of his 25 career opponents, Davis has gained the reputation of being one of the sport's most feared punchers. While his biggest asset lies within his two fists, Davis has also received praise for his overall boxing ability. Rolando, on the other hand, finds the skills of Davis rudimentary. While the 26-year-old Las Vegas, native acknowledges that Davis is a hard hitter, when it comes to his all-around features in the ring, Rolando has a difficult time giving Davis any credit. “That’s the thing I don't get,” said Rolando during an interview with AB Boxing News. “He’s not that talented. Everybody talks about his boxing skills but he literally gets punched by everybody.” Unlike most of his opponents, Davis was recently forced to dive deeper into his bag of tricks than usual. On June 26th, earlier this year at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta Georgia, Davis opted to move up two weight classes to take on former WBA “Regular” titlist, Mario Barrios. A noticeably wary Davis fought cautiously on the outside early on before finding his rhythm in the second half. Ultimately, Davis would continue his knockout winning ways as he floored Barrios in the eighth and 11th rounds before referee Thomas Taylor waved things off in the penultimate round. Despite scoring the knockout victory over a much larger man, Romero is both unafraid and unimpressed with what Davis brings to the table. Although the Baltimore product's knockout power is often lauded, Rolando believes he should be viewed as an even bigger puncher. With 12 stoppage wins in 14 pro fights, including a seventh-round drubbing against Anthony Yigit earlier this year, Rolando is of the belief that once he connects on the chin of Davis, not only will their contest come to an end, but the life of Davis will dramatically change in the process. "He’s never going to be able to fight after this shit. He won’t be able to process anything. We’re going to need a cart to f*cking push him around."
