Tyson Fury chimes in on recent controversy surrounding Deontay Wilder!
Undefeated lineal heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury believes the long awaited rematch with WBC champion Deontay Wilder will happen again.
The charismatic British boxer was on ESPN making the usual rounds promoting his upcoming June 15 fight. There, he will face undefeated #2 rated WBO heavyweight Tom Schwarz.
When asked about the rematch, the always-boastful Fury replied:
“There is a very high chance we are going to fight again. That’s the big fight everybody wants to see is me and Deontay Wilder.”
The lineal champion would offer his thoughts on the controversial statement made by the WBC champ about killing someone.
“I’ve said a lot of stuff in the past myself. Sometimes these things are said to create opinions. Wilder knows what to say to divide people’s opinions then people talk about him.
“‘Hey, did you see what Deontay Wilder said last night,’ while having a beer with the guys, this is the topic we gonna talk about. So more people will talk about what he said then tune into the fight. It’s the oldest trick in the game.”
Fury would even say from personal experience, why he believes Wilder was just playing the villain role.
“I got a funny feeling that it’s more of a front. Ninety percent is a show rather than the actual real person.
“Because being away from boxing and seeing him outside of the game, he [Wilder] is more of a relaxed, chilled-out person.”
The lineal champion made it clear that both Wilder and unified champion Anthony Joshua have to see him if they want be the top dog of the division.
Fury even magnified that statement by wearing a suit that portrayed all of the lineal heavyweight champions through out the history of boxing.
The heavyweight division is one of the most talked about divisions throughout the sport’s great history. Fury, Wilder and Joshua deserve credit for the buzz that is back into the division!
