Mike Tyson Explains That Wilder Has a Chance To Shock Fury

Former undisputed heavyweight champion and Hall of Famer Mike Tyson has offered some advice to Deontay Wilder on how he can overcome Tyson Fury in their trilogy clash on October 3.

Last month, Fury dropped Wilder twice and stopped him in the seventh round to capture the WBC heavyweight title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

In the first contest, which took place in December 2018, Wilder dropped Fury twice and the contest ended in a controversial twelve round split draw.

The fight was going to take place on July 18th, but it was pushed back due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Wilder is going to be a big underdog in the third contest, but Tyson believes he has a chance to come out on top.

“Listen, [Wilder] didn’t fight the same fight he fought the first fight. The first fight he fought with confidence like he could win. The second fight he fought like he didn’t have no zest, no life in him. I just don’t think he was the same fighter after the first fight. He couldn’t rise to that occasion again," Tyson said during an Instagram interview with rapper Fat Joe.

While some expect another domination by Fury, Tyson is not sure about that. He feels Wilder certainly has a chance to come out on top, if he dedicates himself to winning the bout and really coming in the ring to fight. 

“No [I don't expect a walkover by Fury], there’s always a chance. Everyone always has a chance. It just depends on how much they want to give in to it. If [Wilder] wants to dedicate his life to really winning this fight, anything can happen. Wilder can still make a lot of money. He shouldn’t feel sad or discouraged. He should continue to go out there and fight with a lot of zest and confidence," Tyson said.

[QUOTE=NYG;20489022]That's an opinion though. Chiefs were the more dangerous team with a better QB, offense, and coach. 49ers were more balanced offensively and defensively but weaker at the other position KC was strong at. You aren't trying to say sometimes…

[QUOTE=champion4ever;20488688]You've just hit the hammer on the nail. Tyson Fury is his own greatest opponent. If he comes in overly confident, unmotivated, lackadaisical without the proper training and preparation for a bout while not staying focused on the task at…

[QUOTE=champion4ever;20487294]You are absolutely right. Fury is the overall better fighter. After all, he is the more fundamentally sound of the two, has boxing in his genes and is the more naturally bigger and stronger of the two as well. In…

Obviously Wilder has puncher chance but he has to set this properly by doing some boxing till he find the right opening...
