Having fought Deontay Wilder thrice, Tyson Fury is the best person to advise a fighter on how to beat the heavyweight giant. And so he did. While Joseph Parker prepares for one of the biggest clashes of his career against Wilder, he revealed that he sought advice from ‘The Gypsy King’ that could help him prepare for what is to come on the 23rd of December.

This is probably the most stacked event card in recent history, because of the association of other well-known boxers like Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, and Dmitry Bivol. In the shadows of these stalwarts, Parker, the underdog, can hardly afford any shortcomings. To mitigate such chances, he sought out some much-needed advice from Tyson Fury; and advice he got.

For the ‘Day of Reckoning’, as part of the co-main event, Joseph Parker will step up for the fourth time this year against his opponent, Deontay Wilder, who enters the ring after more than a year. However, Wilder is a formidable opponent against whom one slip can be a costly mistake. So when Boxing Social asked Parker about the advice Fury gave him, he confidently remarked, “Don’t get hit with the right hand. And that was it. Listen, I’ve come up in this training camp. Andy’s come up with a good plan. And I’m going to go out there and perform to the best of my ability and take care of business.”

In another conversation with TalkSport, the fighter also spoke about how the WBC champion is aiding him in his fight against Wilder. He noted, “Tyson was able to give me some advice and some knowledge on fighting Deontay Wilder… He has given me a few pointers and advice and he’s actually helped me with sparring so anytime I have needed Tyson’s help, he’s always been there, so thanks to him for always making time to help me, especially for this camp and this fight coming up.” Kingdom Arena of Riyadh.

In 2018, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ challenged Fury for his WBC heavyweight title. However, while most hoped for Fury to win that night, there was no victory declared. It ended in a draw. But it was a close call for Fury after he was dropped twice that night by his opponent. Then, almost two years later, in a rematch, Fury brought his might and dropped Wilder in rounds three and five, winning via a TKO. Wilder, far away from conceding defeat, called on the Gypsy King yet again in the following year. In a lethal clash, Wilder went down in rounds three, ten, and eleven. Fury too could not escape his opponent’s wrath, going twice in round four. Eventually, Tyson Fury retained his title via a knockout.

Years later, when his chance to interpret his experience comes into play, he’s all game. “Avoid the right hand! That’s my tip for Parker. What more else can you say? Don’t get hit by the right hand and you’ll win the fight. Easy day, isn’t it? Sounds easy, anyway. I think Parker will do him,” noted Tyson Fury.
