Tyson Fury believes that Wilder took the fight because of money and not for revenge, pointing fingers at the way Americans spend and the age factor, saying he doesn’t many fights left in him.
“Yeah, I was surprised he took the fight because it was a one-sided fight. He didn’t win a second of that second fight, but in this game it’s a short game and a short career, and there’s an old saying – ‘We’ve gotta make hay while the sun shines,'” Fury explained to Talk Sport.
“And for Deontay Wilder at the age of 34, how many big fights out there are left for him after a domination like he had? I don’t know the man’s personal circumstances, but from what I’ve seen of these American fighters and sportsmen, they always live a rockstar’s lifestyle, even though they’re not rockstars.
Citing Mike Tyson, Fury believes Wilder is out of cash and needs the fight badly because, he can’t be motivated to take another one sided beating just like in the rematch.
“They go through a lot of money quite quickly. Just look at Mike Tyson, he went through like a billion dollars or whatever he went through. So I’m sure that the money side of it is the tempting thing. I don’t think it’s too tempting to go in there and get an absolute beating like he did before, but he would be tempted by the amount of money that he would receive because they go through it quite quickly.
“I think that’s the reason he’s taking the fight, for the money.”
