Floyd Mayweather open to train Deontay Wilder for trilogy fight with Tyson Fury

Floyd Mayweather open to train Deontay Wilder for trilogy fight with Tyson Fury.

The former pound-for-pound king has reiterated his desire to train Wilder ahead of his trilogy bout with Tyson Fury.

The retired undefeated champion made an offer to Wilder back in August with the promise he could ‘teach him how to win again’.

And Wilder has been given another opportunity to join forces with the legendary boxer as he looks to claim revenge over his rival Fury.

Speaking to ClubShayShay, Floyd said:

‘Tyson Fury’s solid, he’s got skills.

‘Deontay Wilder’s got bombs, but we can make his skills a lot better.

‘I’m here to help fighters, even Wilder.

‘I’m here, all he’s got to do is let me know what he wants to do and we can make it happen.’

It is still not clear when Fury and Wilder will square off for the third and final time with Top Rank chief Bob Arum revealing they’ve had to abandon plans to stage it at the new £1.4billion NFL Raiders Stadium on December 19.

The American was stripped of his WBC world title in February as Fury battered him from pillar to post to inflict his first ever defeat via a seventh-round stoppage.
