“Tyson smashes him and makes him stop and cry!”: Fury’s father predicted his son’s stunning victory over Deontay Wilder in the run-up to heavyweight showdown in Las Vegas
Tyson Fury’s father predicted that his son Deontay Wilder would humiliate before the British hunter’s victory in Las Vegas.

Fury said to BT Sport: “Tyson smashes him and makes him stop and cry. A man when he is under pressure and has been struggling, he will crack at the seams and when he bursts, the cracks will spread from Manchester and back. I bet you £ 50,000, £ 100,000.
“He didn’t fight anyone. Lennox Lewis, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield would have done my son in two rounds [in 2018].
“He shouldn’t have been there. He had all that sagging skin like an inflated balloon. I was in better shape.
“He was as weak as a kitten. He said: “My self-confidence and determination is enough to defeat him because I know he doesn’t have it.” “
“I’ll be the first to say I’m wrong, but I know what my son is capable of.”
The prediction of Fury senior came true and his son is now aiming for a fight against Anthony Joshua.
