Tyson Fury said, “Hi guys, Tyson Fury here. After today’s defeat from City with Manchester United, it’s fair to say that United are taking a worse beating than Deontay Wilder took in all of his fights vs me.

“You know when I fought Wilder. And I was on the floor. And any other man I have ever fought, I never ever believed I was gonna lose the fight. I always believed that I can come back and win, and that’s called a winner’s mentality.”

Fresh from his trilogy win against Deontay Wilder, Fury’s recent statements were for the Manchester United Team.

Is Tyson Fury right about the Manchester United vs Manchester City game?

Fans expected the English Derby to be a nail-biting contest. But in reality, it turned out to be City’s night. The Blues controlled the game from the beginning. Things worsened after United defender Eric Bailly scored an own goal in the seventh minute.
