John Fury claims son Tyson will send Deontay Wilder into retirement in his trilogy fight – telling fans to expect ‘blood, snot and bruises’.
Fury, 33, will take on 35-year-old Deontay Wilder, 35, in the third installment of their epic battles, culminating in Paradise, Nevada, on Saturday, October 9.
The two heavyweights will face off for the WBC and The Ring heavyweight title—which Fury won last February after defeating Wilder by TKO in the seventh round of his second fight.
Wilder and Fury originally fought for the WBC heavyweight title in December 2018, but it ended in a draw, meaning Wilder retained the belt he’s held since January 2015.
Despite being flushed in the twelfth round of the first fight, Fury won the rematch in emphatic style after knocking down the American twice, forcing Wilder’s corner to throw in the towel.
In the second fight, Wilder faced severe punishment and by the time the fight stopped, he was bleeding from both his mouth and ears.
Trainer John Fury promises a lot in the third installment, suggesting that his son will give Tyson Wilder “the beat of his life.”
He said: “Tyson will send him into retirement this time. He’ll never box after this, he’ll be torn to pieces. Torn to pieces.

“He was humiliated last time. He let the whole of America down. Tyson broke him to pieces. He’s lucky he’s boxing Tyson again for the third time.
“After that last performance, he didn’t deserve the fight. It should have been him and AJ.
“People who like blood and snore everywhere and it’s going to be a perfect night for bruises, trust me. He’s going to fix it.”
Fury was due to fight Anthony Joshua in an all-British heavyweight showdown in August, but talks broke down after Wilder was ordered to fight instead.
The trilogy fight was originally scheduled for July 24, but the WBC champion withdrew after reportedly catching COVID-19 and the fight was postponed to October 9.
Neither of them have fought since their last bout in February 2020, but both have worked hard in training, doing all the trash-talking as the rivalry gets more and more heated.
