Floyd Mayweather Jr. has offered his services to help fellow American Deontay Wilder exact payback on Tyson Fury when the pair meet in a third fight later this year.
Fury stopped the previously undefeated Wilder in the seventh round of their heavyweight world title fight in Las Vegas in February, taking the American’s WBC belt.
Wilder reeled out a host of excuses in the wake of the bout – among the most outrageous being that that his elaborate ring-walk costume had been too heavy – but has confirmed in recent days that he will activate the rematch clause in his contract. . That will set up a third meeting between the pair, who also fought to a controversial split decision draw in December of 2018.
And to ensure Wilder, 34, ends up having his hand raised this time around, retired legend Mayweather Jr. has offered to help out.
“If I train him, I can teach him how to win,” Mayweather said on a visit to the UK when asked if Wilder could beat Fury in another re-run.
Fury’s Promoter has confirmed that the pair will re-match in the mid-July
‘Money’ Mayweather, who retired with a perfect 50-0 record after his mega fight with MMA star Conor McGregor in the summer of 2017, is a fan of Wilder, taking to Instagram to post a message of support in the wake of his defeat to Fury.
