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.
Bob Arum, whose company co-promotes Tyson Fury, told Deontay Wilder to talk to the Nevada State Athletic Commission to verify Fury’s battle with COVID-19 as he couldn’t believe Wilder could claim Fury was lying about contracting COVID-19.
Tyson Fury recently spoke to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, where he talked about differences in his lifestyle compared to the likes of Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.
“You know I’m not one of these people. I’m not your Floyd Mayweather or Conor McGregor or all that people who like to live some big, great lifestyle and inspire others. I know it’s great to inspire other people, but I love just to keep grounded and down to earth. I’ll tell you what I like to do. I like to f**king train me ba**s off every single day, knowing that nobody else is doing it. I like running early in the mornings and late at night. I like putting the work in.”
