Wilder claimed he would have "kicked the hell outta that guy", referring to a prime Tyson
Heavyweight legend Mike Tyson has replied to Deontay Wilder's claim that he would "kick the hell outta that guy" in a video stating Wilder "deserves the respect of a champion".
'Iron' Mike Tyson takes to the ring again later this year in an exhibition against Roy Jones Jr, and is revered in some corners as the most ferocious fighter of all time, while Wilder holds the highest knockout percentage in history, knocking out every opponent he faced before a Tyson Fury double which saw one draw and one loss go on his record.
