Wilder ready to move on with or without Fury!
Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-1-1, 41KOs) is seeking a return to the ring in either January or February, preferably against WBC heavyweight champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury. Back in February Wilder was stopped by Fury in seven rounds.
Not long after that fight, Wilder exercised his rematch clause for a trilogy bout. However, as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world, plans for a July rubber match fell by the wayside. Not speaking for months, Wilder broke his silence to make major accusations towards Fury being a cheater and tampering with his gloves. He also shocked people by accusing his longtime co-trainer Mark Breland of spiking his water.
THE BRONZE BOMBER READY TO RETURN WITH OR WITHOUT FURY!
Speaking to Brian Custer on the Last Stand Podcast with Brian Custer, Wilder made it clear he will not wait around for Fury to give him a shot at redemption and talks timeframe to return to the ring.
“You can see me back in the ring sometime the first week of January, the latest the early February. We’re looking through opponents now, you know what I’m saying? We’re not going to sit around and wait on no coward who had, you know what I’m saying, that has an obligation to fulfill but ran away it, we’re not going to sit around man. We gotta back into the ring, I got a lot of fans that’s looking forward to me stepping back in the ring and doing what I do best. So that’s what we’re going to do, we’re looking now and staying training.”
Representatives for both Wilder and Fury are in mediation as the former champion looks to enforce Fury to face him for a third time.
Whether or not he is successful is an entirely different story. It is at least good to hear that Wilder is ready to move on with his career, with or without Fury.
