After beating Deontay Wilder in a dominant fashion in their rematch, Tyson Fury is leaving out no opportunity to take shots at his rival.
Recently, Fury posted a video of him in his gym on his Instagram account, where he has gotten a mural of him beating Wilder painted on one of the walls. In the video, he is seen thanking the artist for this and asking a coach for his opinion.
Tyson Fury (31-0, 21 KOs) is the WBC, Lineal, and The Ring heavyweight champion. He acquired the WBC title after beating Wilder in the rematch.
His opponent, Wilder (43-1-1, 40 KOs), on the other hand, has been rather quiet and maintained a low profile since his loss to Fury. Many excuses have come up from his side after the Fury loss.
Some of them stated that Wilder’s walkout suit tired his legs, while others accused Fury of meddling with his gloves. Wilder, however, is yet to release an official statement on this. But according to his manager, he is soon to break his silence on the loss and the upcoming trilogy bout.
Meanwhile, Fury seems to be having the time of his life, making frequent public appearances at different events. He is also promoting the launch of his autobiography “The Furious Method,” where he has talked about his journey to becoming a boxer, his battle with depression, and his inspirational comeback after massive weight loss.
Before their much-anticipated rematch, which is likely to happen by December this year, it will be interesting to see what state both fighters will be in. For now, we can say that Fury, coming off the biggest wins of his career, will be riding a huge wave of momentum going into this fight.
And though Wilder has just suffered the first loss of his pro career, we can’t say for sure about his mental state until he releases an official statement or gives an interview.
