Mike Tyson Gives His Honest Opinion On Tyson Fury's Win Over Deontay Wilder

Boxing royalty Mike Tyson reckons the third bout between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is "one of the greatest" he's ever seen.

And if truth be told, it's hard to argue with his assessment.

The former heavyweight world champion has witnessed, and been involved in, some legendary bouts himself throughout his time as one of the scariest boxers on the planet.

So for someone with Iron Mike's pedigree to claim that this trilogy was up there with the very best, it means it must have been pretty damn good.

"Fury vs Wilder fight will go down as one of greatest," Tyson tweeted.

"Not for skill but for action and excitement. That fight was all guts, heart and determination.

"Everybody won Saturday night. The fight was bigger than the hype. Both of them reached all time great status."

Instead of chiming in during the immediate aftermath of the bout, Tyson waited patiently to have his say on the historic bout, posting these tweets a few days after Fury had his hand raised.

He has openly spoken about his love for both Fury and Wilder in the past, but it turns out Tyson is also a big fan of someone else in the American's corner on the night.

"Wilder's coach Malik Scott won the night with great coaching," Tyson added.

"When you are an amateur you have a coach, they nurture you, guide you and are with you every step of the way. Once you turn pro you get a trainer. A trainer is in your life as long as the checks are coming...

"A coach is with you for the rest of your life. A coach feels every punch you take and give too."

Wilder may have lost against Fury, but in Iron Mike's eyes both fighters won.

Not just that, all of boxing won too.
