Hence, Fury has vowed that he will register an even better performance on July 24. That said, he believes Deontay Wilder is stuck at the defeat that cost him his undefeated tag. Speaking with Gareth Davies, ‘The Gypsy King’ shared his raw opinion on ‘The Bronze Bomber’ and the upcoming trilogy fight.

Tyson Fury said, “Yeah. I’ve done nothing wrong, I just continue to do what I do. Keep moving forward and landing pressure on him, landing big punches – he’s the one that’s coming off a knockout loss and one-sided fight.”

‘The Gypsy King’ continued, “If you’re an alcoholic or drugs addict, the only way you can actually move on from that is acceptance.
