TMZ posted a video of Mayweather speaking at an event in Manchester, and the undefeated boxer was asked if he thinks Wilder will win the rematch against Fury. And Mayweather responded, “If I train him. If I train him, I can teach him how to win.”
After Wilder’s loss to Fury on February 22, Mayweather took to Instagram to post a heartfelt message:
His Instagram caption reads, “Win, Lose or Draw…. Deontay, [The Bronze Bomber], is our brother that has accomplished many triumphs and as a community we should all uplift and support him throughout it all. No matter what, you’re still a winner in my eyes, King!”
The Bronze Bomber was dominated by Tyson Fury in their second fight, losing via seventh-round TKO. From pillar to post, he was hit with countless significant punches from the Gypsy King, and dropped multiple times in the bout, leading to Wilder’s corner throwing in the towel.

The Bronze Bomber Has Placed Blame on His Walk-Out Suit
A few days after suffering defeat to the Gypsy King, Wilder told The Athletic that his ring-walk suit was over 40 pounds, and a catalyst to him losing the rematch.
Wilder has said that he had to wait in the back before walking out while wearing the suit, and then had to make the slow walk to the boxing ring. The Bronze Bomber has said that by the time he took his suit off, his legs had fatigued considerably.
Here is the video of Wilder’s walkout:
Tyson Fury Had a Very Different Idea for His Ring Walk
While Wilder chose to walk to the ring wear the all-black suit, the Gypsy King had a different idea. Fury was carried out to the ring while sitting on a throne. He wore a crown and a red cape, while being carried by women wearing Antiquity clothing.
