George Foreman makes Fury trilogy fight prediction after speaking with Wilder
George Foreman has predicted Deontay Wilder can ‘easily beat’ Tyson Fury in their trilogy fight after speaking to the Bronze Bomber.
The heavyweight legend has been mentoring Wilder since his loss to Fury last February and even offered to train the American.
Wilder has already activated his right for an immediate rematch with Fury and Foreman was asked by TMZ if he thought the former WBC champion could reclaim his belt by beating the Gypsy King.
‘Not only beat him, [Wilder] can do it easily,’ he told TMZ.

‘Give him another chance. He’ll show you.’
Foreman urged Wilder to get in touch with him after his loss to Fury and it appears the heavyweight took him up on the offer.
‘I had a nice conversation with Wilder, nice conversation with him,’ Foreman revealed.
‘We talked because I was in a position where I lost unexpectedly with the title in Africa [when Muhammad Ali won the ‘Rumble in the Jungle’].
‘Only I know what he’s going through.’
‘He’s gonna have to live with [the Fury loss] but I can show him how to live with that and come back better,’ Foreman added.
‘We talked a lot on those lines.’
Fury and Wilder’s trilogy fight is expected to happen later this year after the coronavirus pandemic forced the boxers to abandon plans to stage the bout in Las Vegas this summer.
The British Boxing Board of Control confirmed this week all events in May had been cancelled and Fury is in lockdown with the rest of the UK.
Several heavyweight encounters have already fallen foul of the health crisis, with Joe Joyce vs Daniel Dubois, Derek Chisora vs Oleksandr Usyk and Dillian Whyte vs Alexander Povetkin all postponed.
