My Business With Tyson Fury Is Far From Over – Deontay Wilder Finally Speaks After His First Defeat

Published

on

Deontay Wilder has confirmed he will be exercising his rematch clause for a third fight with Tyson Fury and has blamed his heavy outfit for the defeat on Saturday.

Fury handed Wilder the first defeat of his career at the MGM Grand to become WBC heavyweight champion.

But the ‘Bronze Bomber’ has told The Athletic that his business with the ‘Gypsy King’ is far from over.

The 34-year-old has echoed the claims of co-trainer Jay Deas that his suit of armor weakened his legs entering the fight.

He is also said to be re-evaluating keeping his assistant trainer Mark Breland after his corner threw in the towel during the seventh round.

Wilder has reportedly insisted that his team knows:

“I’d rather die in the ring than have the towel thrown in. I’m a warrior.”

The American fighter has also criticized referee Kenny Bayless for not confronting Fury about ‘a slew of punches to the back of his head and neck’.

A lock punch saw Wilder floored in the third round after Fury caught him in the ear.

He collapsed to the mat and never got back into the fight after the vicious shot.

Many fans were anticipating Fury moving on to fellow British heavyweight Antony Joshua for a title unification match.

‘AJ’s’ promoter Eddie Hearn is keen on a match between the two and tweeted his support for the bout being organized as soon as possible.
