Tyson Fury Tells Wilder To Send Him A Contract
It seems that even though Deontay Wilder won’t be facing Anthony Joshua in 2018, another British fighter with a claim to the world heavyweight crown wants in.
“Deontay Wilder, I’ll apologize on behalf of Eddie Hearn and Anthony Joshua for stringing you along,” claimed Tyson Fury in an Instagram video released on Wednesday. “Basically I’ll apologize because they’re from the same country as I am. Let me tell you, you’re talking, looking at the original, real, world heavyweight champion from this country. Me!
“They won’t fight you. They’ve took 3 months stringing the fans along with no intentions of fighting. I’ll fight you in 3 seconds, never mind 3 minutes. Get your boss, Al Haymon, send me the contract and I’ll show you how long it takes to sign it. Whallop! 10 seconds, done! Signed, stamped, delivered, photograph taken, uploaded on Instagram.”
“You wanna fight the best this country’s ever had? Knock knock on my door and see if the Gypsy King doesn’t answer. Bum! The ball’s in your court.”
This comes as Anthony Joshua is now all but confirmed to face mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin on September 22nd, due to the WBA threatening to strip Joshua of the title if he did not comply with their order.
Wilder was all but set to face Joshua, but now has been offered an April date at London’s Wembley Stadium.
