That said, the Brit has already begun painting shots at his foe, Wilder, and is only looking to escalate the same as fight inches closer.

When Fury recently interacted with ESPN, the journalist asked him how he deals with inactivity in the fight world. Fury used this opportunity to take a dig at ‘The Bronze Bomber’. He said, “It’s not how do I deal with it. You gotta ask Deontay Wilder the question as how does he deal with it. I’ve had long stints of inactivity in my career.”
