Fury dethroned Wilder of the WBC world title after stopping him in the seventh round of their highly-anticipated heavyweight clash in February.

And Foreman used his experience from his own historic loss to Muhammad Ali and counselled 'The Bronze Bomber'.

"I had a nice conversation with Wilder, nice conversation with him," he said. "We talked because I was in a position where I lost unexpectedly with the title in Africa. Only I know what he's going through.

"He's gonna have to live with [the Fury loss] but I can show him how to live with that and come back better. We talked a lot on those lines."

Wilder wasted no time in triggering the contracted rematch clause. He's set to face Fury for a third time in October and Foreman believes the American can win the bout easily.

"Not only beat him, [Wilder] can do it easily," the 71-year-old added. "Give him another chance. He'll show you."

'The Gypsy King', meanwhile, stoked his rivalry with Wilder by admitting he'll never get bored of beating him up.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, he said: "I'll be obliged to give him a bit more, you never get bored of beating Deontay Wilder up, it's just one of those things you take great pride in doing.

"I really did what I said I was going to do. Not many people in boxing say something then do exactly what they said they were going to do.

"So I was quite proud of the performance and I'm really looking forward to getting all this coronavirus out of the way and getting the world back on track and getting back to my job."

Fury vs. Wilder III is scheduled for October in Las Vegas.
