What John Fury Told Tyson In Emotional Conversation Ahead Of Epic Deontay Wilder Fight In 2018

What John Fury Told Tyson In Emotional Conversation Ahead Of Epic Deontay Wilder Fight In 2018

John Fury has admitted that he told Tyson Fury he 'wouldn't speak to him as long as he lives' if he took the 2018 mega-fight with Deontay Wilder.

But Fury made his sensational return in 2018 and picked up comfortable wins over Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta as he eyed up a shot at then-WBC champ Wilder.

The Brit superstar shed an astonishing 10st as part of his dramatic comeback, but 'Big' John felt his son was far from ready for the fight.

Fury's father pleaded with his son in a heartbreaking conversation not to fight Wilder at the time as he didn't want him to end up getting seriously hurt.

During a UK tour for Gold Star Promotions, the 56-year-old said: "He said, 'Dad, these two are going to and from all day long. I'm going to step up to the plate and I'll fight Wilder.'

"I said, 'If you do that, I won't speak to you for as long as I live because you will get hurt; you've just lost 10 stone in as many months, you're not really fit at all.'

"I said, 'Leave it, you've had a couple of warm-up fights, you're not there yet. Your strength ain't there, you can't knock a hole in a wet paper bag, where's your sense?'

"It went from there and the rest is history; it was the best comeback of all time, who gets up in the 12th round like that?
