“They’re trying to run away from it, I’m running to it. I don’t believe he had COVID… I know he wasn’t doing well in camp. The young guys were piecing him up. I had a young guy from my camp who was piecing him up.” Wilder claimed on the PBC podcast.

Deontay ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Wilder claims that many young boxers are causing problems for Tyson ‘The Gypsy King’ Fury while sparring. Wilder also promised fans they would see ‘a reinvented Deontay Wilder’. When asked about how his sparring was going on, Wilder replied, saying, “Sparring has been amazing. I can’t say names but just know there have been a lot of people on the canvas.”

The war of words between the two camps and fighters has begun. Last time around, Fury looked like he had gotten into Wilder’s head because of which Wilder was not able to let his punches fly in their 2nd fight.
