Tyson Fury has taken to Instagram to dispell rumors that his fight against Deontay Wilder is off, and has made it known that he’s coming for the WBC title.
Fury and Wilder are set for a showdown later this year after Fury defeated Francesco Pianeta by unanimous decision earlier this month.
Even though both fighters have confirmed the fight is happening, Matchroom Boxing CEO, Eddie Hearn has little to no faith that the fight is happening, suggesting the fight is already off..
“Just a quick update,” Fury said while on a recent vacation. “I’ve been reading and have heard some rumours that this fight is off for me and Wilder.
“Not on my watch it ain’t – I’m not pulling out of nothing. It’s on like Donkey Kong… I’m just taking some much-needed rest after a nine-month training camp but I will resume training September 1st.”
“That will leave me nine or ten weeks to prepare. I’m already fit, I’m already ready, I haven’t got any weight to lose,” Fury said this weekend. “I’m coming for Wilder’s belt. I’m a big believer of when it’s your time, it’s your time.
“My uncle always used to say if you can fight you can fight and if you can’t, don’t do it. I can fight I’m going to prove I can fight by taking the most dangerous heavyweight in the world on in his backyard.”
