British promoter Frank Warren has warned Deonatay Wilder, he is not getting away from Tyson Fury’s mind games despite the pair hardly sharing a room together during the rematch build-up.
“I’ve heard it said that a lack of joint media work is an advantage to Wilder. The thinking being that Tyson got in his head last time around,” said Warren in his latest column.
“Maybe so. What I do know is that Tyson will choose his moment to strike. Believe me, Wilder is far from off the hook in that respect. Wilder didn’t know if he was fighting his best mate or worst enemy last time. One minute he was being his mate. The next verbally dismantling him.
“Tyson will choose his moment before fight night. Do what he’s got to do. It was relatively sedate when they came together last week and Tyson, who played it cool. He said to me that he felt it all went ok from his point of view.
“He seems in a fine frame of mind and is well on it. That is where he’s got to keep it,” added the Hall of Famer.
Fury set to face Wilder on February 22 in Las Vegas.
