- Mike Tyson has dished an important advise to Deontay Wilder ahead of his fight with Fury
- The former undisputed heavyweight champion suggested to Wilder to keep his head right and maintain his fitness level
- The trilogy bout is scheduled to hold in July and the winner will challenge Anthony Joshua in a unification fight in December
Mike Tyson has commended Deontay Wilder's decision to make a third fight happen with the new WBC champion Tyson Fury, cited on Sportbible.
The Bronze Bomber suffered his first career defeat to the Gypsy King last month after a seventh-round stoppage in Las Vegas.
And the American fighter has triggered his rematch clause for a trilogy fight with the British heavyweight champion in July.
Iron Mike Tyson who celebrated Fury's victory at the MGM Arena has given a thumbs up for another rematch in a yet to be mentioned date.
The 53-year-old suggested that his fellow American should return to full fitness and keep his head right for the fight.
"[Wilder] has to go right back in, right away.
"Get yourself healthy, your head right and get back in the ring," Tyson told The Sportsman.
The winner between Fury and Wilder III will face Anthony Joshua in a much anticipated battle of the Brits in December 2020.
But MTK Global, Top Rank and Queensberry Promotions have since released a joint statement and said: "Due to the publication of a number of misleading and misrepresentative statements and articles made by third parties relating to Tyson Fury, the following statement is made jointly by MTK Global, Top Rank and Queensberry Promotions.
"Tyson Fury is the globally recognised number one heavyweight in the world and the current lineal, WBC and Ring Magazine champion.
"Tyson is contracted to a third fight with former WBC world champion Deontay Wilder.
"Any statement made regarding negotiations, talks, venues or any other bout should be disregarded.
"Any updates regarding future fights will only be made through official channels, and we will continue to deliver boxing fans the biggest and best fights involving the 'Gypsy King'."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Floyd Mayweather's uncle Roger has passed away at the age of 58.
Roger was heavily involved in Mayweather's training team following his own successful boxing career.
Floyd attributed his discipline to his uncle who is regarded as the finest trainer of his generation.
Legit.ng had earlier reported that Tyson Fury is currently being investigated after a farmer named Martin Carefoot was offered £25,000 to lie after the heavyweight boxer failed a doping test in 2015, cited on The Sun.
Fury and his cousin Hughie tested positive to a drug shortly after the Gypsy King defeated Christian Hammer.
But the British fighter claimed the illegal high level of steroid nandrolone found in his system was because he ate an uncastrated wild boar.
