Although Tyson Fury is currently in Marbella, training with Billy Joe Saunders, the excess weight the former heavyweight champion of the world has put on during his absence from the ring, is causing some to cast doubts as to whether Tyson will ever return to boxing.

One fighter who believes that Tyson Fury?s career is over is the big-hitting current WBC world heavyweight title holder, Deontay Wilder.

Having visited these shores last weekend, to watch the thrilling heavyweight contest between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko, Wilder is starting to become a familiar face to the British boxing public.

Talking to the American media, Wilder has remarked about his fellow heavyweight,

?I love Tyson Fury. Personally, I don?t think he?s coming back.

?He?s too big, When he talks, you hear him talk and stuff, it sounds like somethings wrong with him. I?m not liking it. I?m starting feeling bad for him.?

Could those remarks prompt Fury to double his efforts to get back in the ring?

However, continuing, Wilder is of the opinion that having taken the ultimate scalp in Dusseldorf in 2015, Tyson doesn?t have the desire to come back, further adding,

?He don?t have the desire to really fight. He?s still talking because he wants to remain relevant. I?d still love for Tyson Fury to come back, but I think that?s for him. How the hell are you going to get all that weight off like that? You know how long it takes to get weight off like that unless you do surgery? It takes a while. I love exercise. For a big man like that, it?s going to take a lot. He can never get down to where he was. He will still struggle with weight. I don?t think he?s coming back. I?d like to see him because he?s great for boxing.?

Will Tyson Fury prove Deontay Wilder wrong or has the WBC heavyweight champion called it right?
