Fury Blasts Wilder’s Record
While Tyson Fury’s last few opponents have not been high caliber, the former world heavyweight champion has blasted his December 1st opponent’s list of opponents.
Fury would attack the resume of WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, claiming Wilder fought “hand picked” opponents and when faced with a real challenger Luis Ortiz, he nearly lost.
“He says Luis Ortiz is his best opponent,” Fury said. “The man’s 49 years old. I nearly knocked him spark out as well.”
“I didn’t say nothing about size,” Fury responded to Wilder responding with Ortiz height and strength. “It’s age. Luis Ortiz is 49 years old, yeah? And he beat you, didn’t he? … So if that’s your best opponent, you’re in trouble, bum. I ain’t 49. I’m 29, or 30 now, so it’s still a big gap, 19 years different.”
The once undefeated Ortiz nearly stopped Wilder in the seventh round, stumbling the champion, but Wilder would fight back to knock down the Cuban southpaw twice in the tenth round to get the stoppage win.
“I’ll pop you like a balloon,” Fury said.
“I’ll make you quit. You’ve got no heart and no nuts. Listen, you ain’t ready, you ain’t never gonna be ready, your managers know you’re not ready, your lawyer knows you’re not ready. That bald-headed fella on the side of you, he knows you’re not ready, whoever he is, old bald-head there, on the end [promoter Lou DiBella]. He ain’t ready. You’re not ready, dosser, are you? You big bum!”
