However, this time Tyson Fury has claimed that he can vanquish Deontay Wilder, even without a proper fighting physique. In a chat with Volume Sports, ‘The Gypsy King’ shared his views on Wilder as his potential rival and slammed ‘The Bronze Bomber’ once again.

“I didn’t take any extra time to prepare. Why do I need to prepare for a bum like Deontay Wilder anyway? I could fight him on three days’ notice at f***ing 400lbs and still knock the p***y out. Excuse maker, piece of s***, that’s what Wilder is,” said Tyson Fury.

Meanwhile, this can also be a response to Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn, who recently claimed that Tyson Fury has had an improper fight camp for the upcoming showdown.
