POUND-FOR-POUND king Canelo Alvarez has offered Deontay Wilder some words of wisdom following his brutal loss to Tyson Fury.
The American suffered an 11th-round KO loss to the WBC heavyweight champ last weekend in a thrilling Las Vegas trilogy fight.
After scoring two knockdowns in the fourth round, Wilder, 35, proceeded to take an ungodly amount of punishment from the Gypsy King.
And unified super-middleweight king Canelo reckons The Bronze Bomber could benefit from improving his conditioning and working on his head movement.
During an appearance on The Last Stand Podcast, the Mexican said: “Great fight, great fight.
“I think Wilder needs more condition, more moves.
“He doesn’t know how to move the head. It is difficult when you don’t have that condition and you don’t know how to move.
“That is why Tyson Fury beat him. Tyson Fury is a great fighter.”

Wilder turned in a markedly better performance in the Sin City showdown than he did in the pair’s rematch last February.
But his sole reward for his herculean effort was a broken hand, which he’ll have surgery on next week.
The Olympian’s co-manager Shelly Finkel told SunSport: “Deontay broke his right hand behind the third knuckle and he has to have that fixed next week.
“He has to have surgery, the knuckle is OK, it’s the bone behind the knuckle that broke.
“He’s sore but he was OK, he was home yesterday.
“He’s healing and at this point, if everything is OK, after the hand surgery he’ll probably look to enter the ring mid next year, like April or May.”
A dejected Wilder refused to acknowledge Fury was the better man as he sat on his stool after the bout but gave the Brit props following his post-fight check-up.
He said: “I did my best, but it wasn’t good enough tonight. I’m not sure what happened.
“I know that in training he did certain things, and I also knew that he didn’t come in at 277 pounds to be a ballet dancer.
“He came to lean on me, try to rough me up and he succeeded.”
