John Fury believes his son Tyson will have a significant advantage over Deontay Wilder.

Fury and Wilder will lock horns again after their first fight ended with a controversial draw.

Asked if his son will take a different approach to the fight, Fury told BT Sport: “Only because he’s forced to because he got a bad decision last time – 10-2 and he got a draw. He knows this time he’s got to do something different.

“But this time Wilder is facing someone different in a man at his weight, he’s stabilised at his weight, strong at that weight, and he wants it more than anything in the world. Wilder now is not getting any better, he’s edging 35 years old, he’s on the decline. Tyson’s 31, getting better and Tyson’s fought better people.”

The fight between the “Gypsy King” and the “Bronze Bomber” will take place on February 22 in Las Vegas.
