Wilder should go 'all out' in Fury trilogy bout, claims Mike Tyson

Deontay Wilder should go ‘all out’ in his trilogy bout against Tyson Fury for ‘five or six rounds’, claims Mike Tyson… who also questions whether the American is stepping into the ring just for another ‘big payday’

  • Deontay Wilder will look to exact revenge on Tyson Fury in their third showdown 
  • Both heavyweight face off in Las Vegas next weekend with WBC title on the line 
  • Mike Tyson believes Wilder should go ‘all out’ across the first ‘five or six rounds’ 
  • He has also questioned whether Wilder is fighting Fury again for a ‘big payday’ 

Mike Tyson believes Deontay Wilder should go ‘all out’ in his trilogy bout against Tyson Fury next weekend, and has also questioned whether he is stepping into the ring simply for a ‘big payday’.

Having suffered a chastening defeat at the hands of Fury in their last fight, Wilder will be hoping to exact revenge on October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and the Gypsy King’s WBC world title is on the line.

And with the stakes incredibly high again for the next showdown, Tyson says Wilder should take up a no holds barred approach and throw caution to the wind.

‘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.’

Wilder, 35, was left thoroughly battered and bruised by Fury last February, and has been also forced to wait over a year and a half to look to respond to the first professional loss in his career. 

He is in a bullish mood, however, and has even warned his heavyweight rival that his life ‘depends’ on the standard of his preparations.

‘This fight right here, you better be preparing,’ Wilder said after being quizzed over whether he had a message for Fury.

‘You better train your butt off as if your life depends on it, because your life depends on it. Don’t go up missing.’

Fury, on other hand, opted for a more straight forward response, promising to ‘smash his face in’ and labelling him a ‘p****’. 

Meanwhile, John Fury, the father of lineal heavyweight world champion Tyson, has said that Wilder can learn from Anthony Joshua in how to handle defeat with dignity.

Wilder made several bizarre excuses following his loss to Fury last year, claiming his water was spiked, accusing the superstar of cheating and blaming feeling fatigued on the heavy costume he sported for his ring walk.

After he also split from his trainer Mark Breland, with both men having endured a bust-up after the towel was thrown in, Wilder has been criticised by Fury senior, who is left irked by the American’s response to setbacks. 

‘I got asked about Wilder being like AJ,’ Fury said. ‘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.

John Fury has said Wilder could take a leaf from Anthony Joshua’s book in handling setbacks

‘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.

‘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?’

With just days left until the bout, Tyson has made a late appeal for his own followers to be given special dispensation by the US Government to fly in to support him.

The ban on British citizens flying straight to America from the UK will be relaxed, but not in time for them to catch the fight.   

‘I’ve still got my fingers crossed that at the last minute President Biden will open the borders to my supporters,’ Fury has said. 

‘I’ve been putting the pressure on for the Brits to be allowed to invade Las Vegas again and make it like my second fight with Wilder.’
