Fury vs Wilder 3 prediction, tantrum: Chris Colbert torches excuses and accusationsHot
Super Featherweight hopeful Chris Colbert (15-0, 6 KOs) will be defending his WBA minor title against the always game Tugstsogt "King Tug" Nyambayar (12-1, 9 KOs) of Mongolia in a scheduled twelve round main event of another Showtime triple-header this Saturday night in Carson, California.
The live coverage is slated to begin immediately following the encore presentation of "Davis vs. Barrios" with a start time of 9PM ET/6PM PT.
Although the talented boxer/puncher from Brooklyn has been turning a lot of heads with his slick skills in the ring, the 24-year-old fighter just raised a lot of eyebrows with his latest commentary on the upcoming installment between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
Despite being a part of the evergrowing PBC roster, Chris wasn't shy about his Fury vs Wilder 3 prediction.
"Just like I told you the first two times, Fury is going to beat on him (Wilder)," Colbert stated to FightHype in the attached video.
While Deontay Wilder has made many changes since experiencing his first professional loss, including the replacement of Mark Breland with new head trainer Malik Scott, Colbert believes the adjustments won't matter and the reigning WBC champion will once again be victorious.
The crafty young fighter has admittedly seen the popular videos recently published by Team Wilder, showing Deontay and Malik working mitts in combination, yet Chris claims that honestly, he's not impressed.
"The pads don't hit back. Everybody looks good on pads. But Tyson Fury is special. I don't think nobody is f***ing with him."
Fury and Wilder's first meeting took place at the Staples Center back in December of 2018, which resulted in a split draw verdict from the judges at ringside. According to the 130-pound interim titlist, the "Gypsy King" deserved to get the decision and should be up 2-0 on the trilogy scoreboard.
"I think he (Fury) won the first fight too...two knockdowns don't win a twelve-round fight. I'll give him three rounds at the most. He clearly got knocked out in the rematch...then all of the excuses he was making after the second fight is terrible."
Eight months after the Wilder/Fury rematch, Deontay released a personal video claiming "foul play" from Team Fury, making gravely serious glove and water tampering allegations against Javan Sugar Hill Steward, Tyson Fury, Ricky Hatton and former trainer Mark Breland.
Chris Colbert is adamant in his belief that every Wilder post-fight excuse is bogus.
"Why would Mark Breland want to f*** up his paycheck? If he knew he could keep getting big paychecks with Wilder, why would he want to do anything that would f*** up his paycheck? Come on now...that doesn't even sound accurate."
"Then he said Fury put something in his glove? Then the outfit...did the outfit weigh more than Wilder? Too many excuses. Even if the outfit weighed 20 pounds...you weigh over 200 pounds. Like wearing the outfit is going to make you so tired and your legs are so dead from walking from there to the ring?"
"Who told you to do that? Tyson Fury didn't tell him to do that...his team didn't tell him to do that."
Colbert, like many others within the boxing community, believes the reason for the one-sided loss is entirely internal, and that Deontay has an issue with honest criticism.
"He can't take his a**-whooping like a man."
"I have no problem with Wilder. He just can't take an L. He was mad at me when I said I thought he lost the first fight. Why you mad at me? ... I'm honest with you!"
"If you're my man, you gotta accept that I'm being honest with you. You don't want guys around you saying that you really won even though you got knocked out! You've got to accept honesty...constructive criticism."
Despite sounding off on the surrounding Fury/Wilder drama, the elusive boxer/puncher realizes that he has a fight on his hands this Saturday night.

"I have a job to do, and that’s to get the win by any means necessary, but I’m looking to dominate. I expect Nyambayar to bring his A-game though because he knows he’ll be in there with a monster. I may not be the biggest puncher in the world, but I know how to finish a guy and get him out of there, and on July 3 that’s exactly what I’ll be looking to do.”
