Fury Mad He Didn’t Finish Wilder

For the first time since his epic draw against Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury looks to start over on June 15th against Tom Schwarz.

“I’ve been out of the ring for (over) six months, so I’ll have to start again,” Fury told Press Association Sport.

“That’s seven months’ inactivity,” Fury continued leading to his ESPN+ debut on Saturday night inside the MGM Grand, “I only had six months of activity before that. They spoke about (Gennady) Golovkin being out of the ring for nine months as his biggest lay-off ever; I’ve just had seven.

“Seven months out of the ring is a hell of a long time. I hope I’m going to get active this next six months; the first six months of this year have been quite terrible because I didn’t get the fight I wanted and have been made to wait until June.

Larger than he was against Wilder, the former unified world heavyweight champion feels disappointed he didn’t finish the current WBC world heavyweight champion.

“Going 12 rounds with Deontay Wilder doesn’t give me any confidence,” said the Gypsy King. “It actually makes me have concerns – I thought I could get Deontay Wilder out of there within six rounds, so having to go 12 with him wasn’t great. I should have done better.

“Deontay Wilder’s living his life in my reputation and the fight he had with me,” he said.

“I’m here headlining in Vegas, and he’s (saying) ‘I want a rematch with Tyson to try and get that loss out of my mind’. He knows he was beaten soundly.

“I’m enjoying my life, thinking about Tom Schwarz, and every time Wilder looks in the mirror he knows he lost a fight. I’m the only unbeaten heavyweight at the top; Wilder’s lost, Joshua’s lost and Ruiz has lost. They’ve all lost apart from me.
