In the video below, Fury stated that Wilder was in “poor mental health” as the fight gets closer. Fury also stated about the fight: “I think he’s doing it for the wrong reasons. When people do things for the wrong reasons, they always wind up getting hurt.”
Fury and Wilder are no strangers to each other as the two came to a draw in December 2018 before Fury defeated Wilder via seventh-round TKO in February 2020.
Fury continued to bash Wilder stating: “It’s crazy, he’s letting himself down, letting his fans down, letting the people of America down, the American media. People have come here to interview him, to see what he’s got to say and promote the fight….I’ve done my end, and it’s up to him to do his bit.”
Wilder had nothing to say. His trainer, Malik Scott, explained the situation to Raimondi: “He’s just not feeling it, man. What I could say is he’s in a very violent mood. He’s been like that in training camp. He shuts down. And honestly, I don’t mind it. I think this fight sells itself. I think him not saying nothing is selling itself. Boxing is quirky. Boxing is weird.”
