I insulted Deontay Wilder on facetime after beating him and i’ve not heard from him since – Tyson Fury


WBC, Ring Magazine and Linear boxing Champion, Tyson Fury has revealed he has spoken to rival Deontay Wilder once, since beating him in February ahead of a rematch in December.

Since Wilder lost his WBC crown to Fury in humiliating fashion, he has been silent as the December target date for their trilogy fight draws closer, prompting speculation that he might not take the fight.

Fury and Wilder regularly exchanged tweets and text messages over the years but according to Fury, Wilder has gone quiet after he face-timed him in March to insult him.

When asked if he’s heard from Wilder about the trilogy, Fury told White and Jordan on talkSPORT: “I’ve not heard a thing.

“He took a FaceTime from me in March.

“I called him a bit of a big dosser and then he didn’t answer the phone to me ever again.”
“I’m supposed to be boxing on December 19 in Las Vegas against Deontay Wilder in the trilogy, but every two days I hear a different story; they’re trying to bring it forward a week or put it back a week, whatever.

“The one thing I want to announce to the world is I will be fighting in December, whether it’s Wilder in Las Vegas, or if it’s Joe Bloggs in England.

“I want to fight now! I’m ready to go today, tomorrow, next week or the next couple of months.

“I made it very clear that if we can’t fight in America I want to come back to the UK and do a homecoming.”
