Former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson has advised Deontay Wilder to “grow up” and continue fighting Tyson Fury.

Last month, two of the greatest heavyweight boxers of the modern era Fury and Wilder clashed inside the ring in an attempt to settle their talked about rivalry once again. Fury ended up stopping the heavy-hitting Wilder in the 7th Round after “The Bronze Bomber” was spotted by the camera unstable at the end of round 6.

One of the most engaged boxing personalities in the said rematch was (Mike) Tyson. “Iron Mike” was vocal about his biased thoughts on Fury vs. Wilder as he takes pride for being named after “The Gypsy King.” And in one his latest interviews, the 53-year-old once again lauded Fury and send Wilder another message about a possible third fight.

In a rare video call interview with Grammy Award-nominee Fat Joe, Tyson was asked to share his thoughts about Fury vs. Wilder rematch. According to the legend, Fury is a different type of heavyweight and always comes as a surprise. Widler on the other hand should not be “discouraged” and continue fighting Fury until it’s really over.

“He’s really different. He’s 6’7, 6’10 but he’s elusive as a boxer,” Tyson said about Fury.

“Deontay Wilder could still make money. He shouldn’t feel bad and discouraged. He should continue out there and fight with a lot of confidence. Grow up man! Let’s just keep going through this until it’s really over,” Tyson said about Wilder.

Fat Joe and Tyson had different assessments as to why Wilder lost to Fury in the rematch. As per Tyson, Wilder fought with “no death and no life” in him. Fat Joe on the other hand, thinks that Fury really “tagged Wilder” with unanswered shots that stopped him in Round 7.

In another recent interview, Tyson already gave Wilder some piece of advice about fighting Fury once again. Tyson’s message to Wilder was short and simple but filled with words of encouragement.

“He (Wilder) has to go right back in, right away. Get yourself healthy, your head right, and get back in the ring,” Tyson said.

After the devastating defeat, Wilder is reportedly eyeing for an instant rematch. However, Fury is currently linked with a blockbuster showdown with his fellow countrymen Anthony Joshua. “AJ” was able to regain his heavyweight supremacy after taking Andy Ruiz Jr. in a 12-round boxing clinic last December.
