TYSON FURY has called on Deontay Wilder to retire after being left as a ‘WRACK’ following their trilogy series.
The pair drew in 2018 but Fury stopped the American twice in subsequent rematches.
Wilder, 36, has yet to officially announce his return but revealed he is heading towards a boxing comeback.
But the 33-year-old Gypsy King, after 30 rounds together, believes his great rival’s best days are over.
Fury told Queensberry Promotions: “He’s still second best in the world, a very dangerous man and he’ll knock anyone out if he punches them in the face and in 12 rounds – guess what – he’ll punch them in the face .
“He was 44-0 when I beat them, he beat everyone he’s ever fought before me.
“He’s a very dangerous opponent but I don’t know what else he has in his tank.
“You don’t have a trilogy with one of the best fighters in the world and come out the other side to tell a great story and win more world titles.
“He’s absolutely devastated physically, mentally and emotionally and I would say he’s a wreck at the moment.
“He had a broken jaw, a cracked skull and was knocked unconscious twice, it’s a tough comeback for him and it all depends on what he has left.”

Fury continued: “I don’t want to see him continue, he’s made a lot of money and I’d love to see him retire.
“Whether he wins a few easy comebacks or goes totally into the firing line and starts losing, it starts to destroy his legacy.
“Right now he’s only lost to the best fighter of his generation and that’s not disrespect, that’s not shame.
“But if he comes back and starts mopping the floor because he was shot to pieces, that would be a shame.”
He’s absolutely devastated physically, mentally and emotionally and I would say he’s a wreck right now.
Tyson Fury on Deontay Wilder
Fury defeated Wilder in October 2021 and returned in April to knock out Dillian Whyte, 34, after which he announced his retirement.
But he opened the door to a FOURTH fight with the Bronze Bomber.
He joked: “If he still wants a good hideout call me. Holla by that boy.”
Fury is linked with a return to winner between Anthony Joshua, 32, and Oleksandr Usyk, 35, set for August 20 in Saudi Arabia.
And the man himself revealed he will be fighting again after holding talks with his promoter Frank Warren.
Fury said: “Last week we had a lovely Italian guy down in London and we had a long chat about a lot of things.
“I’m going to be 100 percent back in the ring, just like in the movie when Jerry Maguire was ‘Show me the money!’ shouted.
“If anyone can show me the money, it’s Frank Warren. I call him the Magic Man and we’re going to make some big, big things happen.”
