    He will get overwhelmed and pummeled yet again. Fury just never allowed him to set himself to throw and land his right hand and will do the same thing again.

    Hire a good world-class trainer and start all over again with the fundamentals

    Use feints and subtle footwork to draw Fury into making mistakes and overcommitting his punches, then punish him with crisp, expertly timed counter shots through his guard. Use mind games in the pressers and make Fury second guess himself so that by the time the fight comes around you're in his head and able to read his every move.

    Someone like Iceman John Scully or former Olympian Mark Breland would be excellent at doing this. Peter Fury would also be a great teacher. Wilder's a sponge though, so he'll be able to pick things up from almost anyone he works with.

    It just came to me! Catchweight! Yeah that's the ticket. 205 for Wilder 230 for Fury. Nah seriously though, I would advise him to wait a year, take a tune up of some sort and then rematch. What can Wilder do? ef if I know. Have more than one plan to start with. Keep your damn hands up, ( saw an interview of Wilder where he was saying he didn't like the way he kept his hands up in the first fight " that's not me ") survive the early rounds while sinking in a couple of body shots here and there? Prepare yourself for a long gruelling fight! Work his jab, but sparingly. Throw in combinations, feinting with the right and throwing a hook and then getting out of there! Work the body! I thought Wallin did some good body work against Tyson and it paid dividends at the end of the fight for him, he just didn't have the energy left. I have little hope for Wilder in the rematch based on the way the last fight just went. I remember hearing the pundits back in the olden days would say the giant man will tire, they can't keep up the pace. Never really bought into that one, don't quite get it.

    Forget all these advanced techniques. He hasn't got time to learn them. Just throw constant hayemakers from round 1 and work on his stamina so that he doesn't gas when doing so. Hopefully one of them will land for him. The wild swinging will keep Fury cautious.

    The jabbing he did in round 1 clearly didn't work.

    I think the oppostite should happen. My analysis before the 2nd fight was that because Fury was so heavy, Wilder should avoid toe to toe exchanges against him because the fight ending early would be the best chance an out of shape Fury would have to win.

    It would be a big mistake for Wilder not to take a backward step because simply Fury is to big a mass to push back.

    In a third match if I'm Wilder's trainer, I'd train him to move back laterally in defensive mode taking backward steps and only firing with power when the opening is clearly there.
    There is absolutely no way Wilder can outbox Fury, so he needs to be defensive and strike with right hands sudden like a Cobra.
    Aint puching the bigger man back, so he's got to catch him while Fury is coming forward on the attack.
    That's pretty much how Wilder caught Ortiz. The difference is Ortiz tried to crowd Wilder buy getting inside while Fury being bigger than Wilder left more room to make Wilder feel more comfortable with his distance for Wilder to have the audacity to punch. Once punching, Fury would counter and close distance and either pummel Wilder with short hooks or uppercuts, or tie Wilder up and push Wilder down with his arms and lean on him with his weight as to tire Wilder.

    Wilder cant do that on another go around, he needs to use his legs to backtrack and fire away at strategic points in the fight so as Fury doesn't get a sense as to when Wilder is going to let go his power.
    Back and fire and keep circling back, repeat and rinse.
    Usually you don't train a fighter to land one big punch, but Wilder better train his legs to do that the full 12 and hope at some point that lethal right of his connects, because I don't see him beating Fury any other way.

    What the hell was his game plan for this fight? Someone please explain it to me. He came in at a weight he wasn't comfortable at and just got drained so much quicker.

    Do the ring walk naked, cover up with a leaf #adam&eve style, to reduce the risk of tiring out before he even reaches the ring.

    Throw everything and a kitchen sink at Fury in rounds 1-3 cuz after than he can pretty much go to his corner and throw in the white towel himself.

    Wilder should not take off his Steel Armour so he can withstand Fury's punches just standing in the middle of the ring until Fury punches himself out

    Im sure Wilder has scribbled down his new gameplan somewhere...

    1. Get carried to the ring
    2. No towels
    3. No earings

    Wilders game.plan should be to stay as far away from fury as possible and never fight him again. Fury is his boss and he will never beat him
