Mike Tyson Calls For Deontay Wilder To Make Boxing Comeback Against Oleksandr Usyk And Predicts ‘Aggressive’ Display


The Bronze Bomber has been out of the ring since October after being knocked out by Tyson Fury in their epic trilogy fight.

Wilder was looking to reclaim the WBC title after his five-year reign was ended by the Gypsy King in February 2020.

The 36-year-old revealed in December how he is assessing his future in boxing after admitting he had “achieved all his goals”.

But WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman recently revealed the Alabama banger will return this year, and former foe Fury has declared he wants Wilder to fight for his old belt.

Fury has once again reiterated his desire to retire after stopping Dillian Whyte, which will see the WBC strap become vacant.

And now Mike Tyson has called on WIlder to return, insisting he should face unbeaten Ukrainian Usyk.

The WBA, WBO and IBF king is currently preparing for his rematch to face Anthony Joshua in July.

But should Usyk emerge victorious, Tyson wants his American compatriot to pit his wits against him.

Speaking to Joe Rogan on his Hotboxin’ YouTube channel, he said: “I think Deontay Wilder should fight Oleksandr Usyk. That’d be good.

“Wilder will be aggressive trying to knock him out.”

Tyson has also had his say on British icon Joshua, as he insisted he is no walkover ahead of his rematch with Usyk.

He remarked: “Anthony Joshua’s no walkover. It’s just that for some reason, I don’t know, we expect a lot from Joshua.

“I guess maybe because English people are so behind him and we got caught up in the bandwagon too.
“Americans expect a lot out of Joshua.”

He added: “He can do so much, that’s why he’s never a lost hope. He’s dangerous, Joshua, because he’s still f***ing learning.

“Joshua needs to pick up the pace just a little. He’s got so much damn potential.”
