DEONTAY WILDER will lose a one sided fight to Tyson Fury, insists British heavyweight Nathan Gorman.

Wilder will defend his WBC title against former heavyweight champion Fury at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 1 and Gorman, a former sparring partner of Tyson’s, knows just how good the “Gypsy King” can be.

“For his comeback fight I did a lot of sparring with him,” Gorman told Boxing News. “I do believe it’s going to be very one-sided in Tyson’s favour. I think Wilder’s going to punch fresh air. Don’t get me wrong, if he hits you he’s probably the most dangerous puncher in the world, is Wilder, but it’s hitting Tyson. Trust me, from a man who’s had experience with him, it’s hitting him. He’s very clever. How do you train for that person? Orthodox, southpaw, hands up, hands down, you just don’t know what he’s going to come out and do. I just think he’ll make him miss and make him pay.
