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.
