After a protracted process, the ex-WBC heavyweight champ, Deontay Wilder is finally aligned for a fight against Tyson Fury. Wilder came as a dark cloud for the Brit’s undisputed fight against Anthony Joshua. He played his cards well to book this trilogy. Fury, however, was interested in battling his compatriot in an undisputed fight.

Citing that, Wilder feels ‘The Gypsy King’ and his father, John Fury, tried everything in their hand to pour cold water on their trilogy.

Speaking to Boxing Social, he said, “I mean, he’s just clear ducking! Basically trying to get us on the duck. Because you know it sounds gonna be on the mind waited as I say. He did the second time you will ‘Oh, you know you’re gonna kill my son and all that’. And today, figure out a way that they can cheat.”

Deontay Wilder has asked for a trilogy bout ever since he suffered a lopsided loss against the British boxer in February 2020. This was his first loss in his illustrious boxing career.

Moreover, in that fight, nothing went in ‘The Bronze Bomber’s favor as he miserably failed to defend and attack with his game plan. Also, this loss came in at the wrong time for Wilder, as a win might have put him on top of the contention for an undisputed heavyweight war.
