Wilder: Fury Is The Biggest Coward In Boxing
While both Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are signed for a rematch that is alleged to be happening on February 22nd, Wilder doesn’t take the former unified world heavyweight champion at his word.
“I don’t know with these characters,” Wilder told BoxingScene.com. “I don’t know what they’re thinking. You know, it’s all fun and games to Tyson Fury. If it wasn’t fun and games for him, he would’ve rematched me instantly. If he had the heart of a warrior and a mindset of a warrior and a champion, he would’ve rematched me instantly. Not waited until someone came and saved him, so he can have an excuse to cop out of the rematch.”
“He knows he’s not getting $100 million, not even $80 million,” said the WBC world heavyweight champion.
“And it probably ain’t even $70 million. His promoter [Arum] even said that himself. So, he wanna run around here like he getting a $100 million contract. That’s not true, but he wanna use that as a copout to not fight me. That’s a coward. That’s a f***ing coward if I’ve ever seen one. I’m just happy to be who I am. I can’t worry about these other fighters, or what they’re doing or what they’re thinking. Boxing, I love this sport, but you just don’t know what’s gonna happen until it happens.”
