The boxing star Deontay Wilder is furious with the postponement of the highly-anticipated trilogy fight against Tyson Fury. The announcement of the delay was made after the Gypsy King tested positive for the deadly coronavirus. Jake Paul ‘Exposes’ Surprising Amanda Nunes Claim



Deontay Wilder reacts to the postponement

Sportsmail had previously reported on Thursday that the bout between Fury and Wilder was called off after the Gypsy King contracted Covid-19, along with three members of his camp. Thus, pushing the bout to early October.

The Athletic boxing writer Lance Pugmire tweeted that the ‘Bronze Bomber’ said to his manager Shelly Finkel that he felt it was another problem caused by Fury and he was the one to suffer.

Pugmire’s tweet said:

“After winning arbitration over @Tyson_Fury when the champion sought to fight @anthonyjoshua instead of finishing his trilogy, @BronzeBomber is beside himself after this delay.

Again now, he did wrong and I’m the one being penalised,’ Wilder told his manager Shelly Finkel.”

Fury had initially agreed to fight Brit Anthony Joshua in the heavyweight clash for the undisputed championship but it was Wilder who successfully forced him to nix those plans when a court arbitration ruled Wilder was entitled to a third fight, and thus the Fury vs Joshua bout was cancelled.

The fight was initially due to take place in the T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas strip on July 24 but almost a couple of weeks to go, it has been called off.
