Mike Tyson Tells Deontay Wilder To 'Grow Up' And Stop 'Feeling Sorry' For Himself In Savage Instagram Live
Mike Tyson has some harsh words of advice for Deontay Wilder if he is to beat Tyson Fury in a trilogy fight, 'grow up,' 'stop feeling sorry for yourself' and 'dedicate your life to winning the third fight.'
In February, Wilder was finally beaten for the first time, when Tyson Fury completely outclassed him in their rematch from the controversial draw over a year before.
The Bronze Bomber has already triggered his own rematch clause for a third fight, which is expected to take place sometime in October, but he's been given a warning by Mike Tyson in the below clip.
"[Wilder] feels like giving up: 'Oh, my life is over. I've made $90million dollars. My life is over. Oh God, I want to die.' Grow up," Iron Mike said on Instagram Live to rapper Fat Joe.
"Keep going through it until it's really over.
"Wilder can still make a lot of money. He shouldn't feel sad or discouraged. And he should continue to go out there and fight with a lot of zest and confidence."
The 2008 Olympic bronze medalist was easily beaten by his British opponent with the Gypsy King sticking to the tactics he said he would be employing by taking the fight to Wilder.
Fury knocked his opponent down twice before finally finishing the fight in the seventh round when the American's corner threw the towel in.
Most deny that the former WBC champion has the skills and change up of tactics to get revenge for his first loss but the 'baddest man on the planet' thinks the 34-year-old could turn things around.
"The first fight, [Wilder] fought with confidence like he could win. In this fight, he fought like he didn't have no zest, no life in him. I don't think he was the same fighter after the first fight.
"After the first fight, [Wilder] couldn't rise to the occasion again.
"There's always a chance. Everyone always has a chance. It depends on how much he wants to give in to it. Does he want to dedicate his life to really winning the fight? Then anything can happen.
"Something went wrong with Wilder during the second fight with Fury, and he never did adjust.
"If Wilder can't fix the mistakes he made in his rematch with Fury, then he's not going to last long in the third fight.
"But he will make a lot of money, so it's not all bad."
Right now there's obviously no boxing going on and Anthony Joshua's fight with Kubrat Pulev was officially postponed on Friday afternoon.
AJ's representative Eddie Hearn revealed earlier in the week that if his man only has the chance to have one fight in 2020 then he'd want it to be against Fury, though it all depends on Wilder stepping aside.
