A 4 mile run there with me dad in the park here in Liverpool. Hoping to God that the baby gets out of the hospital on Wednesday and I can start training for the big dosser, Deontay Wilder, which gives me about 7.5 weeks, which is plenty of time for a mug like that,” said Tyson Fury.

John Fury believes Tyson Fury has “gone a bit one dimensional”

In the first fight against Deontay Wilder, the British heavyweight champion showed world-class movement, footwork, and landed damaging shots. This allowed Fury to equalize scores in their first bout. Deontay Wilder did not show any significant improvements and developments in his approach. However, Tyson Fury seemed even better in the second fight. His improved striking and increased agility enabled him to stop ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in round 7.

John Fury recently dismissed the WBC champion’s training camp members in the USA. He warned his son against being around ‘yes men’ in his camp. He posited his son needs to train harder for the third fight.

“I watch him in America doing a minute on the pads and being talked to afterward. You know what they’ll do, they’ll do a minute’s work and talk for two minutes.

And I’ve witnessed it firsthand and I’ve thought to myself, ‘You know what? This ain’t making sense to me, and he’s sort of lost his bit of movement that he had, for my money.

He used to be elusive, he used to be awkward, coming at you from all different styles. He’s gone a bit one-dimensional,” said John Fury.

Do you think Tyson Fury can win the last leg of this rivalry?
