Fury’s training partner makes bold prediction ahead of Wilder trilogy bout

Deontay Wilder has 'no chance' against Tyson Fury says boxer Stephen McKenna, who trained with Fury in Las Vegas earlier this month.

The Irishman got some work in with Hury at the UFC's Performance Institute while he was sparring with Josh Taylor for his world title fight against Jose Ramirez this weekend.

And based on what he saw in the training sessions with Fury and his analysis of the 19 rounds the pair have spent in the ring together, McKenna believes there is only one way this fight will play out.

Speaking ahead of his fight on the undercard of this Friday's Sam Eggington vs Carlos Molina fight on Channel 5, McKenna told Mirror Fighting : " Tyson Fury is too smart.

"He's too good, he has Wilder beat, even looking at what he did with him last fight, he got him out of there fairly quick and I think there's only one winner there and it's Fury.

"He's a great man even in the gym, he always brings a great atmosphere to the gym and he's a very motivational guy."

The pair were seen moving around in the ring a few weeks ago, with Fury inviting the 7-0 super-lightweight to lash him with body shots after showing him some techniques.

They were both in Vegas to help world champion Taylor prepare for his unification bout with Ramirez which goes down on Saturday night, just hours after McKenna's eighth pro outing.

"The facility we were training at in the UFC Performance Institute is a world class facility and we had all of the things we would need, it was an unbelievable setup.

"I got to see a few UFC fighters training while I was there and I did some sparring with Josh Taylor and he's really a great fighter and we got some great work in."

McKenna, who has yet to see the final bell in his pro career has been out of the ring for five months since his last fight on December 18th, which is a much longer wait for competition than his last turnaround of just one week.

He's planning to get out as frequently as he can now that he's back, adding: "I'd like to fight as much as possible, I'm hoping to get something like four or five fights this year.

"I'd fight every month if they got the chance, I want to be kept busy, keep knocking guys out, keep winning and keep learning."
