Despite suffering a humiliating loss in the rematch, Wilder is optimistic about beating his unbeaten rival in the ring. However, Tyson Fury’s father John Fury doesn’t see that happening.

Although Wilder has the experience of fighting Fury twice, John Fury claimed that the third battle will endanger the American boxer’s career. He also claimed that Wilder had cherry-picked Tyson Fury after seeing the Brit struggle against Otto Wallin. However, the 57-year-old analyzed how Fury appears completely different inside the ring from what he looks in the training.

Speaking with Boxing Social, John Fury said, “He can look terrible in a training camp, but when he gets in that ring, he’s a different man, different animal. And they got it wrong twice. And they’ll get it wrong the third time. But the third time will cost him his career and his life, probably. If he’s not dead, he’ll be an invalid, which is a silly man. But if they want to sell their soul and put their life on the line for money, which I’m sure they will, get on with it.” (H/T: Boxing Scene)

A few of his recent social media clips cite that Wilder is moving differently inside the ring. So, does that put any chance on his side?

Although Fury could rise from the doom, Wilder can look to charge up the Brit again, with more power this time. Besides, the postponement of the fight from July 24 to October 9 has brought more time for the American KO artist. So, we can possibly see the tables turn, irrespective of John Fury’s stern claims.

Do you think Tyson Fury VS Deontay Wilder 3 will be different from the first two fights?
