Floyd Mayweather Snr, the father of the legendary boxer Mayweather Jr, has berated Deontay Wilder ahead of his potential trilogy bout with Tyson Fury.
The American professional boxing trainer has stated that he would not train Wilder ahead of the third showdown with Fury citing flaws that he possibly won’t be able to fix.

Fury and Wilder are set to have their third fight later this year, with the Gipsy King dominating their second fight in February.
After so much punches, Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in round seven - and now Mayweather Snr believes he couldn’t fix his flaws.
"A lot of people have been asking me to train him. But I don't know if he can be fixed. There's a lot of things he's got to do that I know that he doesn't know," he said on the YouTube channel.
However, WBC champion Tyson Fury has disclosed that he took a break from his preparations towards Deontay Wilder's fight in 2018 to have a drink.
The 31-year-old despite jumping into the title challenge was said to have been unfortunate not to be crowned winner at the end of the 12th round.
Fury added that he ended up having a drink and went to bed early and the following day, he had a very good fight.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Deontay Wilder has stated that he is not bothered if Floyd Mayweather comes out of retirement or not, as the boxer prepares for his trilogy with Tyson Fury.
Mayweather had in November 2019 announced he will come out of retirement and that was just 48 hours before Wider’s fight against Luis Ortiz.
However the ‘Money Man’ has back-tracked the claims, but the idea does not bother Wilder who feels the timing for such announcement was wrong.
