Mike Tyson Gives His Prediction For Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder’s Rematch

Boxing legend Mike Tyson has revealed that he is fully backing Tyson Fury to beat Deontay Wilder in the forthcoming mega-rematch.

Brit superstar Fury, 31, will trade blows with WBC champ Wilder on 22nd February in Las Vegas.

And Tyson revealed that he was supporting the 'Gypsy King' in his initial 2018 blockbuster fight with Wilder.

While the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' admitted that he could be "biased" towards Fury, he wants the Brit to beat Wilder in their highly-anticipated clash.

Tyson told BT Sport as part of Round 12: Fury's Resurrection: "I like both of them as fighters, they both came from nothing and achieved becoming heavyweight champion, you have to respect that, I was in their position one time.

"In the first fight I was hoping for Tyson Fury, I always pulled for him because he was named after me, that is the natural thing to do, right?

"I didn't know if they were washed up or throwing the fights because Tyson did not look like he should be beating them.

"But he was and he was laughing at them, that made me a fan. He is so much better than what he appears to be and looks like.

"[The rematch] will be a really interesting fight because both guys will have something to prove. I just wish the best for Tyson Fury, I'm a Tyson fan."
