Mike Tyson Offers Important Advice To Deontay Wilder Over Tyson Fury Rematch

Mike Tyson Offers Important Advice To Deontay Wilder Over Tyson Fury Rematch

Boxing legend Mike Tyson has backed Deontay Wilder's decision to trigger his automatic rematch clause with new WBC champ Tyson Fury.

The 34-year-old Alabama-born boxing star suffered his first professional loss last month as Fury secured a seventh-round stoppage win in their blockbuster rematch.

'Iron' Mike, who celebrated Fury's win in Las Vegas, believes that Wilder has made the right call to step into the ring with the WBC champ again.

However, Tyson has suggested that it is important for the KO artist to return to full fitness and make sure his 'head is in the right place.'

The 53-year-old ex-boxing superstar told The Sportsman: "[Wilder] has to go right back in, right away.

"Get yourself healthy, your head right and get back in the ring."
