Deontay Wilder was set to face off against Britain’s WBC champion Tyson Fury for the WBC World Heavyweight Championship in Las Vegas on July 24. Ahead of their boxing match, they had a press conference where they could not stop staring at each other. However, that was cancelled after Tyson Fury tested positive for COVID-19. Tyson Fury also leaked bad news related to Wilder’s health previously.
Tyson Fury spoke at the pre-fight press conference ahead of their trilogy fight, where he addressed Deontay Wilder accusing Fury of using unfair means during their second fight together, last year.
“I don’t care because obviously, it’s coming from an unwell person. He accused me of everything, accused his team, his trainer, the suit, injuries. Who else did he accuse? Oh, the Athletic State Commission of Nevada. They were in on it as well, the referee, whoever else – Maybe if he’d have come out with one of these excuses, then it would’ve been believable, but not fifty of them. Come on. And he can believe what he wants. What it tells me is that he’s a weak, mental, little person who I’m gonna knock spark out on Saturday night.
I beat him the first time after three years out of the ring, quite comfortable actually, (he) won two rounds of a 12-rounder. I absolutely obliterated him in the rematch. He didn’t even win any of the rounds. And in this third fight, I’d just say much more of the same.”
