Mike Tyson Gives Deontay Wilder Advice For Fury Trilogy Fight, Says It's His Only Chance To Win

Mike Tyson believes Deontay Wilder should go 'all out' against Tyson Fury in their WBC world title showdown on Saturday and look to end the fight in the first 'five or six rounds.'

The Bronze Bomber is famous for his punching power and the American boxing legend feels that Wilder's team should take an all-or-nothing approach when they face Fury at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The 55-year-old, who made his own comeback in an exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr back in November, also questioned Wilder's own motives for entering the ring with Fury again.

"I like Wilder but is he going in there to win or is he going in there for a big pay day?' Tyson told ES News. "They should go all out for five or six rounds. If you catch him, you catch him. Go all out, win or lose."

Fury was victorious in the second fight of the trilogy back in February 2020, winning thanks to a seventh-round technical knockout and Wilder was far from magnanimous in defeat, citing a number of bizarre reasons for the loss that included the water being spiked and his ring costume being too heavy.

There was also a famous bust-up with former trainer Mark Breland, which led to a split with Wilder.

Fury Senior was angered by this behaviour and claims that the Alabama-born star could learn from the way Anthony Joshua handled his shock defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.

"I got asked about Wilder being like AJ," Fury told Mail Online. "You could never compare the two men.

"AJ had dignity in defeat, he knows what's gone wrong and he's trying to put it right and he will do. The other one's in total denial and has been talking absolute rubbish for the last two years.

"He's still talking rubbish and that's what puts me off him as a fighter and that's why in my opinion he cannot improve because of his mindset."

He is unsurprisingly backing his son to prevail in Nevada this weekend and hold onto the WBC title, believing Wilder's poor attitude will be his own downfall on the night.

"Tyson will know when to fight and when to box and I don't think Wilder has the intelligence to cope with that on any level at all. Not knocking him it's just the character he's shown to me in defeat.

"How can you learn in defeat when you carry on like that?"
