Tyson Fury Unloads On Deontay Wilder: ‘I’ve Got His Heart, Soul, & Mojo’
Tyson Fury doesn’t have many kind things to say about Deontay Wilder.
Fury will be going one-on-one with Wilder for a third time on July 24. “The Gypsy King” was aiming for an undisputed heavyweight title clash with Anthony Joshua but Wilder won an arbitration that legally guarantees him a trilogy fight with Fury by September 15.
Fury appeared on the ESPN broadcast of Josh Taylor vs. Jose Ramirez. There, he unleashed a rant on Wilder and promised to put away “The Bronze Bomber” once again (h/t BJPenn.com).
“You know, I think he’s going to give it a good roll of the dice. This is his last hurrah. I’ve got his heart, his soul, his mojo. Everything of Deontay Wilder, any substance of Deontay Wilder, I’ve got it right here in my pocket. I’ve carried it around with me for the last 18 months. His soul.
“This guy is a glutton for punishment. He’s an idiot. He got absolutely dismantled and smashed to bits in our last fight. And he wants that all over again. He’s telling people I’ve cracked his skull, I’ve injured his shoulder, I’ve hurt his bicep. But yet he wants to get in there with me again. He’s either one of two things: absolutely crazy or a sucker for punishment.”
