Tyson Fury’s father had threatened to not talk to him if he fought Deontay Wilder

A tough decision from his father did not make Tyson Fury give up his famous “crazy” personality.

John Fury, the father of the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, recently said he threatened to never talk to his son if Tyson Furry dared to fight Wilder.

Tyson Fury returned to the ring in 2018, after more than three years fighting alcohol, drug addiction and depression that made him overweight and weighed 177 kg. Tyson Fury’s return journey is ups and downs enough to make a film in depth.

When he just returned, Tyson Fury quickly won 2 warm-up victories in just 2 months and then immediately entered the controversial draw with Deontay Wilder at the end of 2018. In that match, Tyson Fury despite being overwhelming, he was still seen by Deontay Wilder twice on the floor.

“Tyson came to me and said he was going to fight Wilder. I told him, if you do, Dad won’t talk to you until you die. Because you will be beaten up. Just lost more than 60kg in a few months, I’m not ready. I told him to quit that game, have a few warm-ups because he hasn’t reached its level yet. My strength is very weak, I can’t fight. And he told me that he was a martial artist, if he was beaten it wouldn’t be. He said” I’ll do what Joshua wouldn’t dare do. If he (Wilder) gradually has a child, it can’t be helped. The best will win” – Mr. John Fury shared.

Mr. John proudly: “Just that and the rest is history. It’s one of the greatest comebacks in history. Who can do that when you’ve been knocked down twice?”

Then, at the 2020 rematch, Tyson Fury took an overwhelming TKO win over Deontay Wilder. The new WBC heavyweight king is also expected to play Anthony Joshua in 2021.

Will Deontay Wilder accept Anthony Joshua to give up Tyson Fury?

Whether a replacement money could make Deontay Wilder accept the position of Tyson Fury’s next rival to Deontay Wilder.

Last February, Tyson Fury became the first fighter to knock out the American “Copper Bomb” Deontay Wilder. Thereby, “The Gypsy King” has brought the prestigious WBC Heavyweight belt back to England after nearly 20 years, since the time Lennox Lewis acquired this title in 2001.

Immediately, the world Boxing Village towards the prospect of a match 4 heavy belts “all over England”. When outside the WBC belt at the hands of Tyson Fury, the remaining three noble titles of Heavy Boxing – WBA, WBO and IBF – are in the hands of Anthony Joshua after the victory over Andy Ruiz last December.

However, this idea is hindered by the rematch contract between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury. In the event that Fury wins a rematch, Wilder reserves the right to request a second rematch immediately. And not unexpected, the Wilder side was notorious for this proposal immediately after the defeat in February.

Recently, the sources of The Athletic website said that the match between Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua is being discussed to take place in December this year in Saudi Arabia. And for Wilder to agree to wait for Fury to fight Joshua, “The Gypsy King” will have to pay a “step-aside money” to the American punch.

In response to this information, Fury’s English boss Frank Warren denied that he had offered to make room for Wilder. But Warren also insisted he was looking forward to seeing the Fury vs. Battle. Joshua takes place in the near future.

“I want that match to happen, for the sake of sports and British Boxing. It seems that everyone wants to watch that match and has chosen their own winner. I believe Tyson can defeat Joshua like he did with Wilder” – Frank Warren said.
