Mike Tyson has told Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder that they should both keep fighting following their historic trilogy fight.
The ‘Gypsy King’ and ‘Bronze Bomber’ produced a legendary battle for the ages on October 9 as they were both down twice before Fury won by knockout in the 11th round in Las Vegas.
In the aftermath, there have been some calls for the ‘Gypsy King’ to retire on top. However, Tyson gave a different message to Fury as he told Rueters: “Keep on winning brother, keep on winning.”
‘Iron Mike’ heaped more praise on Fury as he added: “He’s the lineal champion. He’s the man who beat the man.
“He is heavyweight boxing, period. He is, nobody else. “Ask anybody except for [Oleksandr] Usyk, who is the heavyweight champion? Usyk might even say it’s Fury.”
Wilder’s team have been quick to insist that he will fight on, despite the defeat. This is a message Tyson endorses.
“Keep fighting, make money, stack your money up, and call it a day,” he said.
