Meanwhile, Tyson Fury’s father believes that ‘The Bronze Bomber’ doesn’t want to fight his son, especially after such a horrific TKO defeat in the rematch in February. However, Wilder has justified his loss with several things like pre-fight injury and an overweight walkout costume.

He has also clarified about not being in his best form on fight night. That said, he could have avenged the loss and snapped his WBC title back by vanquishing Fury in the trilogy contest. Since Wilder hasn’t accepted the third fight yet, John Fury claimed to know the exact reason for it.

Recently, Tyson Fury’s father connected with Boxing Social to discuss it. He said, “Why do you think Deontay Wilder doesn’t wanna fight him in the third fight? Because he knows, Tyson has spent months now [with Sugar Hill] and this man’s a technician and he is a knocker outer.”

He further credited Sugar Hill for turning his son into an absolute “wrecking machine.” No doubt it can be alarming for ‘The Gypsy King’s’ upcoming opponents.

John Fury added, “Sugar’s really training men to destroy other men, and that’s what Tyson is doing. He has turned into a six-foot-nine, 19 and a half stone, wrecking machine due to Sugar Hill and his technique and that Cronk style. Tyson is mastering it every day, and we have got a 150-kilo bag hanging from the roof and Tyson’s knocking the crap out of it all over the place”

If Fury vs Wilder 3 happens, it can quell one of the biggest rivalries of all time in boxing history. While Tyson Fury is leading the scoreboard with one win, Wilder can level it by winning the third fight. However, they need to finalize the contest first.
