Fury fires back at Mayweather's offer to Deontay Wilder

‘No matter what you teach him, I will smash him’: Tyson Fury cheekily fires back at Floyd Mayweather after boxing legend offered to train Deontay Wilder for trilogy bout

  • Tyson Fury has responded to Floyd Mayweather’s offer to train Deontay Wilder 
  • The 50-0 boxing legend had revealed he would ‘teach’ Wilder how to beat Fury 
  • But Fury is adamant that he will once again get the better of the Bronze Bomber 
  • The heavyweight duo will clash later this year during the anticipated trilogy bout 

Tyson Fury has fired back at Floyd Mayweather’s suggestion that he would be able to train Deontay Wilder to win their trilogy bout later this year. 

The 32-year-old stripped the Bronze Bomber of his WBC heavyweight belt in a formidable showing six months ago in Los Angeles, and Wilder immediately responded to his first professional defeat by triggering another rematch.  

But, despite Mayweather believing that he will be able to help Wilder bounce back, two-time world champion Fury is still in a bullish mood ahead of their clash.

The now-retired Mayweather believes he would be able to teach Wilder how to defeat Fury

The unbeaten boxing legend’s sensational proposal to his compatriot came during a Q&A session on his UK tour.

He had said: ‘If I train him I can teach him how to win’.

Fury, however, was made aware of Mayweather’s jibe and commented in typically confident fashion on social media.  

He responded: ‘@floydmayweather no matter what you teach him, I will smash him’ and also included a wink emoji. 

Fury retorted to Mayweather’s comments by retweeting the article published by Sportsmail

Fury stripped Wilder of his heavyweight crown this year and the pair will clash for a third time

The retort from the Gypsy King appears to have come alongside a screenshot of Sportsmail‘s article, which delved into the details behind the now-retired Mayweather’s proposal.

With his seventh-round stoppage earlier this year, Fury sealed his return to the pinnacle of the sport and enraged Wilder in the process. 

The formidable American was left irked after the bout was stopped by one of his trainers, Mark Breland, who threw in the towel with Fury battering his opponent from pillar to post.  

The duo must fight before February 2021, which is the deadline that has been imposed by the WBC.
