Deontay Wilder succumbed to a brutal T/KO loss in a rematch against Tyson Fury in 2020. However, that did not stop the ‘Bronze Bomber’ from seeking the trilogy. But it seems Wilder’s statements on the ‘Gypsy King’ have poured cold water on the third fight ever taking place.
Arum said, ”Tyson Fury has said to me and to the mediator that not today, not tomorrow and not ever will he ever fight Wilder after what Wilder said to him. He regards it as a slur not only against him but against the Gypsy nation.”
Since that loss, Wilder has claimed that elements like a heavy costume and spiked water cost him in the ring. Not only this, but the Alabama native accused Fury of having an extra cushion in his gloves to knock him out.
This news reached the ‘Gypsy King’ who has poured cold water onto Wilder’s plans of having a third fight with him. The 32-year-old believes this is a tremendous insult towards him and he will never share the ring with someone who degrades him to this level.
The first matchup between Wilder and Fury ended in a controversial draw, but Fury settled the scores on their second outing. Although it is hard for the ‘Bronze Bomber’ to get over this loss, ‘The Gypsy King’ has already moved ahead to get in talks with Anthony Joshua to fight for all the heavyweight belts.
He has shown little interest in a Wilder fight and is seemingly eyeing a bigger pot of gold this time.
Tyson Fury is a man of his words, and it will be intriguing enough to see if he can stick by the aforementioned statement. He has taken Wilder’s comments to his heart and looks to hurt him by not offering a fight from now.
Given these comments, what do you think Deontay Wilder should do to force his way into contention once more?
