Tyson Fury says a third fight with Wilder is out of the question!
After suffering his first professional loss, Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KO’s) effectively went into seclusion. Prior to his defeat, at the hands of WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO’s), he theorized that his prefight costume depleted his legs. Yet, he himself has essentially taken this theory off the table.
However, since he has resumed making public statements, the notorious Alabaman has presented a laundry list of potential conspiracy theories. The Bronze Bomber has suggested everything from cheating and villainy on Fury’s part to treachery and betrayal in his own camp. Whether you believe Wilder or not, it is clear that the Gypsy King has had his fill of the accusations!
TIRED OF THE BULLSHIT!
In a recent interview conducted by Gareth Davies, Fury explained how if he were built differently, he would be well within his right to sue Wilder.
“Deontay Wilder has tried to bring my character down with the bullshit that he said. So, if I was like the rest of the world, I’d sue him for defamation of character for about 100 million [dollars]! But considering I’m not, I’m not really interested in doing that type of thing.”
THE TRILOGY IS OFF FOREVER!
Although, even though Fury will not strike back through the legal system, he still aims to punish Wilder. Rather than try to clear his name in courts, the WBC champion will simply deny the Bronze Bomber the rematch that he craves so badly!
“So he’ll never get a shot at me now, I’m finished! Never! For what he said, listen, losing is one thing, everyone can lose to a better man on the night. But to come out with the amount of BS that he has come out with over the last eight months. He has conveniently waited until the contract expired before he even opened his mouth for the last eight months. So yeah, it’s ridiculous. I don’t even want to give him any air time, so that’s it!”
If Fury remains true to his word on this matter, it will certainly be a catastrophic blow to Wilder. It will also be an unfortunate casualty of war for many boxing fans. The animosity between the two camps would be off the charts if the big men were to stage a trilogy. This would make for legendary prefight hype given how both like to talk.
Furthermore, it would be extremely interesting to see if Fury could duplicate the dominance he demonstrated in their second bout. Prior to the rematch with Wilder, Fury has never come close to destroying a fighter in such savage fashion. So, for that reason alone, a third fight would have been a fun prizefight to behold. Sadly, it appears that it will never take place.
