“Wilder has been destroyed mentally, physically, and…”- Tyson Fury blows hot on Wilder

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is doubtful of Deontay Wilder’s ability to return to the ring.

Fury had three fights against Wilder in his career, with Fury claiming two wins after the first ended in a 12-round split draw. Since their third bout in October 2021, Wilder has been out of action.

“He is a very dangerous fighter and I think he will knock anybody out if he hits them in the face,” Fury told Queensberry Promotions.

“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, and 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.”
