Tyson Fury responds to Deontay Wilder claiming he wasn’t himself on February 22!
Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-1-1, 41KOs) has come out to proclaim that the fighter Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21KOs) defeated on February 22 wasn’t the REAL version of him!
SOUNDS CRAZY RIGHT?
The Alabama native said the following in his interview on the PBC podcast.
“Tyson Fury knows that wasn’t me. I know that wasn’t me. Everyone in boxing knows that wasn’t the real Deontay Wilder. I don’t see Fury as champion, he ain’t champion yet. We still got one fight left.”
THE GYPSY KING RESPONDS!
It’s clear that Wilder has yet to accept his defeat as he’s trying to convince himself and his fans that it was more than Fury being the better man that night. Instead it had something more to do with him than anything Fury brought to him in the ring.
While he is currently recovering from a bicep injury he also revealed during the same podcast, it’s clear to everyone except Wilder and his fans that Fury was simply the better man on February 22.
Given the fact that he has admitted to not being back in the gym at any point since the fight due to his injury, as well as his acknowledgement that he will be making changes to his team, It’ll be interesting to see how mentally ready Wilder will be when the trilogy goes down later this year.
Regardless of how fans accept Wilder’s claim or what went down that Las Vegas night of February 22, the fact remains that the result of the bout made Fury a champion again!
