WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury has come out to advise Deontay Wilder not to consider returning to professional boxing. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Wilder should just focus on keeping his legacy and not return to boxing because he can’t face the best fighter on the planet and come out of the other side to tell a great story and win world titles.
Fury added that Wilder is destroyed mentally, physically and emotionally at the moment, so he is nothing but a wreck at the moment.
His words, “He is a very dangerous fighter and I think he will knock anybody out if he hits them in the face.”
“And in 12 rounds of course he will hit you in the face. But I don’t know what is left in his tank. You don’t have a trilogy with the best fighter on the planet and come out of the other side to tell a great story and win world titles. He has been absolutely destroyed mentally, physically and emotionally, and I would say he is a wreck at the moment. He has had a cracked jaw, a cracked skull, been knocked out cold twice and it is a tough comeback for him.”
“It all depends on what he has got left but I wouldn’t like to see him carry on because I know he doesn’t need the money. I’d like to see him retire because I’m not sure whether he wins a few more fights or goes in there and is totally shot and breaks up his legacy. At the moment, he has lost to the best fighter of a generation but there is no shame in that. But if he comes back and starts getting wiped the floor with because he is shot to bits, that would be disgraceful.”
