Foreman: Wilder can easily defeat Fury, give him a chance

George Foreman argues that we should not write off Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) in his third fight against Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 19 KOs), despite a crushing defeat of "Bronze Bomber" to "King of Gypsies "on 22 February.

"I talked to Wilder lot," Big George said in an interview to TMZ Sports. "I was in a similar situation when I suddenly lost my belt in Africa [in the fight against Muhammad Ali]. I know, what he is getting through."

"He will have to come to terms with this defeat, but I can show him how to deal with it. We were talking about it. I think Wilder could not only defeat Fury, but also make it look easy. Give him a chance and he will show you another knockout!" Foreman said.

The third fight of Fury and Wilder was scheduled for July 18, but due to the pandemic coronavirus the duel was canceled. October 3 is a new tentative date.
