According to TMZ, Floyd Mayweather spoke at an event when an audience member asked him if Deontay Wilder could win in a rematch with Tyson Fury. Mayweather then responded, “If I train him! If I train him, I can teach him how to win!” Floyd expressed his support via social media after Wilder lost to Fury during a heavyweight match on Feb.22. Despite the shocking lost, fans still back Wilder who became a popular meme last year.
Mayweather also added, “Win, Lose or Draw … Deontay is our brother that has accomplished many triumphs and as a community, we should all uplift and support him throughout it all. No matter what, you’re still a winner in my eyes, King!”
Wilder and Fury are expected to get back in the ring for a 3rd fight on July 18 in Las Vegas. Do you think Mayweather can help Wilder defeat Fury?
