PETER FURY, trainer and uncle of unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury, does not believe WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is ready for the division’s top contenders.

Wilder will make the second defence of his title against France’s Johann Duhaupas on September 26 in Birmingham, Alabama, having stopped the unheralded Eric Molina in June.

Fury, who is preparing Tyson to challenge WBO, IBF and WBA ‘Super’ world champion Wladimir Klitschko, feels Wilder’s team continue to match him with limited opposition because he is inexperienced, though thinks they are being smart.
