Tyson Fury receives strong warning ahead of trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder

Former boxer, David Haye has warned British fighter, Tyson Fury, not to be over-confident ahead of his third fight with American boxer, Deontay Wilder.

Haye believes Fury needs to realise that his fight against Wilder is the biggest bout of his life, adding that the Gypsy king could be going into the contest under-prepared.

Fury will contest with Wilder in a trilogy heavyweight fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday.

“Everybody is completely writing off Wilder for this third fight,” Haye told talkSPORT.

“I have not spoken to anybody who thinks he has a shot in this fight. I don’t see it that way.

“I have seen Fury not preparing like he did the second time around. There were the well-publicised rumours about the fight being delayed because preparation wasn’t going that well. He only got into Vegas late September.

“Three-week training camp for a fight of this magnitude? Maybe there’s some over-confidence. He’s so supremely confident from the second fight, he thinks he can roll into this third fight and it will be a home run.”

He added, “Wilder seems like he has got a massive point to prove. “Fury feels like he just wants to get in there and get him out of the way.

“It is bad energy to have, going into a fight. He needs to realise this is the biggest fight of his life.

“Wilder wants to prove to the world that he is better than people think he is. He will train harder than he has ever trained in his life.”
