Wilder on Sunday officially exercised an immediate rematch clause for a third fight with Tyson Fury after Fury humiliated the Bronze Bomber in the seventh round to capture the WBC Heavyweight belt.
“I can’t blame him for that. It’s all about the money,” John Fury told IFL TV. “But I don’t know what he’s going to do with Tyson because Tyson is only getting better. Get your team around you and tell them to start using their brains. Forget Tyson, forget the Tyson Furys of the world. He’s too good for you. He’s proved that. You couldn’t beat him when he’d lost 10 stone. He got up from your best shots. That was enough to tell you that the rematch should never have been anyway.
The elder Fury advised Wilder to fight WBA, IBF, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua instead.
“Get after Joshua and you’ll probably get all the other belts back off him. There’s plenty of other people out there. Concentrate on them. If you mess with my son, there’s only one place you’re going. The hospital. For a long time, so forget that one.
