The WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury claims to be at peace despite the allegations fire towards his directing by Deontay Wilder, who meets him for the third time in 3 years this coming weekend at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) believes that Wilder would prepare better for their third meeting, if he is able to come to terms with his first professional career loss than rack up excuses and also see’s admitting defeat as part of the learning process, which Wilder will need to undergo in his quest for revenge.
Fury defeated Wilder convincing in their second fight, dropping him twice and stopping him in the second round of the meeting back in February 22, 2020. Wilder will get a chance for revenge on Oct. 9th 2021 and comes into the fight with a new trainer with changes in his corner.
“Do you know what it is with Wilder? He’s very unstable at the moment,” Fury told BoxingScene.com. “And he has to figure out reasons why he lost the second fight. You know, he has to tell himself all this bullsh!t and whatever else he says. But I don’t pay any heed to it. I just feel sorry for him because, you know, it must be hard to be undefeated for 10 years and knock out all of your opponents, and then fight me and lose and get knocked out in probably the most one-sided champion versus champion fight in history.
“I’ve never, ever seen a more one-sided beatdown of an undefeated world heavyweight champion than I did to Deontay Wilder in that second fight. So, I’m not sure how I would react if I got absolutely smashed to bits, like he did. But I guarantee it wouldn’t be like this, like a child. He’s like a kindergarten school child, making excuses why he didn’t get tagged. You didn’t tag me! And that’s what Deontay Wilder is, he’s an excuse-maker.”
Wilder after his first professional loss made many excuses, fired his trainer and went in to accuse the referee Kenny Bayless. He also claimed that the heavy costume he wore during the ring work affected him and made his legs weak before the opening bell. Wilder also claimed that Fury’s gloves were tampered with giving him a rough edge on his punches.
However, Fury is ones again booked as a 3 – 1 favourite to win the rematch with Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) on the 9th of October. The fight will serve as the headlining bout for a four fight Pay-Per-View card which will be live on ESPN & ESPN+.
