Mayweather: I Can Teach Deontay Wilder How To Beat Tyson Fury
Five Division World Champion Floyd Mayweather claims that in Deontay Wilder forthcoming trilogy battle with Tyson Fury he will guide him to victory.
Wilder has for the third time exercised his right to fight against WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury after losing the WBC title last month.
Wilder (42-1-1) was dropped twice at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas and stopped by Fury (30-0-1) in the 7th round. They fought for the first time around to a controversial twelve-round split draw at the Los Angeles Staples Center.
At the moment, the fight is being targeted for the date of July 18th, also at the MGM Grand.
Mayweather was speaking at an event in Manchester, England over the weekend when he was asked straight-up — “Do you think Wilder will win in a rematch with Fury?”
Mayweather responded – “If I train him! If I train him, I can teach him how to win!”
In the wake of Wilder’s loss to Fury, Mayweather spoke out in Wilder’s defense, after the boxer was catching heat for stating that his ring walk outfit was a contributing factor in the defeat.
“Win, lose or draw … Deontay is our brother that has accomplished many triumphs and as a community we should all uplift and support him throughout it all,” Mayweather stated. “No matter what, you’re still a winner in my eyes, King!”
Mayweather retired back in August 2017 when he stopped UFC champion Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, in the tenth round of their mega-fight. At some point this year there was speculation of Mayweather boxing again, but there is no concrete information as to whether or not his comeback will be an exhibition or a sanctioned match.
