Deontay Wilder Responds To Tyson Fury
Deontay Wilder has offered a response to Tyson Fury.
Wilder has been in the headlines recently for his startling claims against Fury. “The Bronze Bomber” has accused Fury of loading his gloves for their February rematch. Fury ended up stopping Wilder via seventh-round TKO to capture the WBC Heavyweight Title. Fury fired back, saying he will never fight Wilder again due to the claims.
Wilder took to his Twitter account to respond to Fury.
Hey @Tyson_Fury ,
Don’t worry about me I am Fine, Blessed.
The only thing I want from you is for you to honor your agreement and fight me. I gave you 2 shots when I didn’t have to and it changed your life. Now it is time for you to be a man and give me my shot as you agreed to.

Fury and Wilder were expected to collide a third time in December. Things didn’t pan out as Fury’s team claimed Wilder’s rematch clause expired. Fury is now looking to fight Kabayel on December 5 in London.
Wilder and Fury haven’t competed since their rematch earlier this year. Many were taken aback by Wilder’s comments as he had been mostly silent after he claimed the costume he wore for his entrance impacted his performance.
Wilder’s loss to Fury was the first of his pro boxing career. Going into the rematch, he had a record of 42-0-1. With Fury seemingly moving on, it’ll be interesting to see where “The Bronze Bomber” goes from here.
Fury is hoping to get past Kabayel so that he can meet WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua. “AJ” is set to defend his gold against Kubrat Pulev on December 12.
