Fury, 30, has overcome his mental health problems and looks good in the run-up to the huge showdown of the WBC title

However, the road since is a rocky road for Fury, which has opened on the mental health problems that have plagued his career.

Fury has fought only twice since returning to the ring and is taking a huge step forward in the class when he is on the verge of defeating the American star Wilder for the WBC heavyweight belt on December 1st across Los Angeles.

And Malignaggi, who won 36 of his 44 professional periods in his career, admits that he has written off Fury in the past – and will not do this again this time.

He told SunSport: "Before Fury beat Klitschko, there was one performance in his career that made you believe he would produce the unthinkable? Absolutely not.

"I did not see that coming – and I'm sure not many other people did that in boxing.

"This is not the kind of fight you say" ah. Fury came back too soon. "

"I will not make the same mistake again by saying that Fury will be easily defeated – I have learned my lesson.

"On any given day this guest can put together a masterly performance and beat everyone – that's a fact."

Malignaggi, who according to Eddie Hearn might be in line for a return to the ring against archrival Conor McGregor, believes that Fury & # 39; s & # 39; unpredictable & # 39; nature could work against him.

He added: "People go through how he has a better chance because he needs a lot of weight and looks great, but I do not agree with that.

Fury hopes to be at the top of the heavyweight division again soon

"Fair play for him, he has done very well to get himself in shape again.

"But at the same time he was not exactly in perfect condition for the Klitschko flight, and he still won.

"For me Fury is too inconsistent, unlikely and unpredictable – you simply can not name the outcome of this fight.

"That said, I do not think Fury looked particularly good in his last two fights.

"There is no doubt Wilder is at his peak now, he has a great jab and a big right hand – Tyson has to be very careful with that.

"But if he gets his tactics on the spot, as he did against Klitschko, who could bet that he would get a real upset again?!"
