‘It just depends on how much they want to give in to it. If he wants to dedicate his life to really winning this fight, anything can happen.
‘Wilder can still make a lot of money. He shouldn’t feel sad or discouraged. He should continue to go out there and fight with a lot of zest and confidence.
‘He’s feeling like he’s given up, ‘Oh my life is over, I made £72million so far but my life is over, oh lord, oh God, I wanna die’.
‘Grow up man, let’s just keep going through this until it’s really over.’

Fury’s trilogy fight against Wilder could be held in the brand new state-of-the-art Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
The final details are still to be confirmed but December 19 is the targeted date and the NFL venue has been touted as an option to play host.
It can seat 65,000 and cost a staggering £1.45billion to build, though there may have to be a reduced crowd of 20,000 depending on the coronavirus pandemic.
