For Tyson Fury, his 2019 has been a mere prelude for what he wants more than anything, to knock out Deontay Wilder.
With a rematch tentatively scheduled for February of 2020, Wilder first must get through Luis Ortiz this November, but Wilder thinks the former world heavyweight champion has his running shoes on.
Today, Wilder told Sky Sports: “Fury, I don’t think he ever wanted the rematch. I can understand him running. He can run, run, run as far as he can.
“But he’s got to remember, he’s signed the contract. Anybody know that the pen is a silent warrior. You’re going to have to pay (the) consequences of getting out of that.”
“You had to rob me and give me a draw,” Fury replied on social media, referencing their 2018 draw inside the Staples Center.
“I don’t know why on earth you would think I am bothered about you. Just get through your fight with Ortiz, do your own thing, stop using my name for relevance. You should be on 20% but you’re not I’m giving you a fair share because I’m a fair man. I’ll see you February 22nd to finish what I started. This time you’re going to get smashed you big bum dosser.”
