Wilder: Fury “Is Nothing In The States” Without Me
While Deontay Wilder prepares for a new opponent on May 18th, the WBC world heavyweight champion is openly wondering what Tyson Fury is going to do without him.
Fury, who cancelled plans for a highly anticipated rematch against Wilder late in February after signing a deal with Top Rank promoter Bob Arum and ESPN.
Now, with Fury eyeing a fight in the Spring, Wilder wonders if a “boring” fighter like Fury can draw without him.
“The thing about it is, I’m the key,” said Wilder, who has knocked out 95 percent of his opponents. “I’m the puzzle piece to it all, especially when it’s dealing with America. You know, Fury is nothing here in America if my name ain’t attached to his. He’s a boring fighter. The only thing good about him is his mouth. He just talks. That’s it. And the only reason we like it is because it makes us laugh, because of the accent. That’s about it. Other than that, every time they come and see this guy fight, he’s got one of the most boring styles in the heavyweight division. Once they see that style being displayed, that’s gonna be it. That’s it.
“With my style, I’m an exciting fighter. I’m one of the most exciting fighters in the division because of my knockout power. People know when they come and see Deontay Wilder, it’s more likely that you’re gonna see someone get knocked out. And that’s what people come to see, knockouts, at the end of the day. They don’t wanna see people get hurt, but they do wanna see how a human body lay once it gets punched in the face.”
