Mike Tyson tells Deontay Wilder to get his ‘head out of his butt’ and to stop making excuses for Tyson Fury defeat

MIKE TYSON has urged Deontay Wilder to get his ‘head out of his butt’ and stop making excuses for losing to Tyson Fury.

Wilder was emphatically dethroned of the WBC belt by Fury in February, and later gave several reasons to desperately explain the result.


But Iron Mike told the beaten heavyweight to stop feeling sorry for himself and let his fists do the talking in an attempt to revive his career.

Tyson, 54, told ESPN: "When Wilder gets his head out of his butt, he's good. Wilder's just gotta stop internalising stuff, this guy is great.

"Just keep on fighting. Fight [Fury] again – fight him a third time. Whenever you have an opportunity to fight for the title, he should fight.

"We can only do this for a certain amount of time in our life, and then we can't do it anymore.

"So we have to do it as much as we can before we end this stuff."

Right after Wilder's comprehensive seven round stoppage, the American blamed the defeat on the 45lb costume he wore on his ring walk.

The 35-year-old then revealed that he needed bicep surgery following an injury.

Fury was also forced to deny ‘bulls***’ claims made by Wilder's brother Marsellos, who accused the Gypsy King of having a 'blunt object' in his gloves.

Then, as Wilder recently broke a long period of silence following his first ever loss, he himself came up with the same elaborate theory.

He accused Fury of 'cheating' by having 'something hard' in his glove.

That is despite a member of his team and the athletic commission observing Fury having his hands wrapped and gloves fitted before both fights.

Wilder followed it up by later claiming his 'water was spiked' which left him with 'no control' over his body.

The litany of excuses and accusations were all made with absolutely no evidence provided.

And it leaves Wilder's reputation in tatters, made worse by the fact Fury, 32, has ditched their trilogy fight.

They were contracted to a third fight as part of the original deal they signed for the February rematch.

But as fans were kept away amid the coronavirus, so was the Bronze Bomber's chance for revenge.

When Wilder gets his head out of his butt, he's good. Wilder's just gotta stop internalising stuff, this guy is great.

As a result, the immediate rematch clause expired with Fury instead now set to make his UK homecoming on December 5 against 28-year-old Agit Kabayel.

The fight will act as a tune up for a potential Battle of Britain with Anthony Joshua, 31, who faces Kubrat Pulev, 39, a week after.

Should the heavyweight stars prevail, it sets up a historic undisputed title decider for all four belts.

But Iron Mike Tyson, set to come out of retirement this month against Roy Jones Jr, 51, feels AJ still has a left to learn as champion.

He said: "That guy could learn some more. He could be taught some more stuff.

"I don't think he's a paper champion, I just think he's a big guy.

"It's hard to fight being that big; it's very difficult being that big and having to fight a smaller guy."
