Tyson Fury Responds To Floyd Mayweather Offering To Train Deontay Wilder For Trilogy Bout

Tyson Fury has finally responded to Floyd Mayweather's offer to train Deontay Wilder ahead of their trilogy bout.

Fury handed Wilder the first defeat of his career back in February as he became the WBC heavyweight champion.

Wilder has since triggered his rematch clause with a third fight coming in December, and Mayweather thinks he holds the key to victory for the 'Bronze Bomber.'

The 43-year-old explained at a Q&A earlier this year: "If I train him. If I train him, I can teach him how to win."

Fury has fired back in trademark fashion and claimed: "Floyd Mayweather, no matter what you teach him, I will smash him."

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' dominated Wilder at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and won via seventh-round TKO.

While a rematch is in the worlds, negotiations seem to have gone quiet in recent months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This didn't stop Fury taking to Twitter to call out his longtime rival however.

The undefeated Brit wrote: "Deontay Wilder where you at mush? The clock is ticking!! I'm not gonna wait for ever!!! There is other bums in the division that I want to eat for breakfast."

Fury is keen to resolve any unfinished business with Wilder so he can get closer to an undisputed title match with Anthony Joshua.

One man who Fury won't be facing in the coming months is Dillian Whyte after a shock defeat to Alexander Povetkin.

Povetkin's victory at Matchroom Headquarters has now put him in line to challenge the winner of Fury vs Wilder III.

Speaking after the fight, the Russian claimed that he felt "confident" even after he was knocked down twice in the fourth round.

Povetkin told Sky Sports: "I didn't feel I would finish [the] fight like this. I was confident in the fourth round even after going down twice."
