Wilder Gloats Over Fury’s Poor Ticket Sales
Deontay Wilder believes the world knows who is the true A-side between himself and Tyson Fury, following Fury’s last two fights in Las Vegas.
Fury’s last two fights against Otto Wallin and Tom Schwarz drawing less than 10,000 attendees, with only 3,500 tickets sold for his September fight against Wallin and 3,8998 comp tickets for the T-Mobile Arena.
“Now we know who sold all the pay-per-views,” Wilder said of his December 2018 fight against Fury inside the Staples Center.” This bro only sold 3,500 tickets. November 23rd will prove that even more.”
Wilder hopes to back up his claims as a bigger draw than Fury when he returns to the ring on November 23rd in a rematch with Luis Ortiz at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The benchmark for Wilder on Pay-Per-View is 325,000 buys, which was the number he drew against Fury in their controversial December 2018 draw, which Wilder believes he won handily.
“I beat Fury. The first four rounds is me easy, the fifth round is also,” Wilder said.
“The only way people move that narrative like that [is] because of the commentary, the commentaries of Showtime, Paulie Malignaggi, all of them, especially Paulie. I won the first four rounds easily.”
