Mike Tyson has revealed he is a massive fan of Tyson Fury and will be cheering the Gypsy King on in his showdown with Deontay Wilder.
Fury and Wilder go to war on Saturday night in Las Vegas in a rematch of their controversial and thrilling draw in 2018.
Fans are struggling to call a winner, but Tyson is predicting another massive performance from his namesake.
‘I like both of them as fighters, they both came from nothing and achieved becoming heavyweight champion, you have to respect that, I was in their position one time,’ he said.
‘In the first fight I was hoping for Tyson Fury, I always pulled for him because he was named after me, that is the natural thing to do, right?
‘I was always biased toward him. He is very likeable, he is a nice person.
‘It was amazing, it made me a fan. It takes great fortitude and belief.’
