In an interview with 78SPORTSTV Wilder spoke about how he would deal with all ‘the snakes in the grass’. Wilder seems confident that he will win against Tyson ‘The Gypsy King’ Fury. “I hope those guys don’t have the nerve to come to me. It ain’t gonna be nothing nice, you know what I’m saying?”

“Imma let you know right now, any of you haters any of you ones that are switched up, don’t come to me, don’t come to shake my hand, don’t even put your hands on me. Because if you do, imma take that as an assault. Nobody touch me, coz if you do imma take that as assault and imma have to defend myself”.  

If he does end up defeating Fury and regaining his world titles, Wilder will be the center of attention. In such a scenario, Wilder has firmly stated that he will not have time to deal with the ‘haters’.
