Heavyweight contender Deontay Wilder has continued to drop verbal bombs on WBC world champion Tyson Fury.
The two fighters are scheduled to collide for a third time on July 24 in Las Vegas.
Fury had planned to move forward with a high stakes unification with Anthony Joshua – but last month an arbitrator ordered him to honor a rematch clause due to Wilder.
Fury’s father, John Fury, wanted his son to dump the WBC title and move forward with Joshua – but the rematch clause directs Fury to face Wilder with or without the involvement of the WBC title.
“Clear ducking. He’s trying to get his son to duck. He did the same thing the second time until they figured out a way to cheat. Then he started betting everything he had,” Wilder said, according to Sky Sports.
“How does suddenly a man get so much confidence in a period of time? That he can bet his last dollar? Now, under the microscope, it will be different. I know what I can do – they know too so they had to find something to slow me down.”
Last February, Fury stopped Wilder in seven rounds to capture the WBC title. In their first bout, in December 2018, they fought to a controversial twelve round split draw.
“They couldn’t knock me out. They couldn’t keep me down,” Wilder said. “It took a disloyal trainer to throw the towel in.
“We know he has no power. He gave me everything and I took it all. I knew what was going on with my body, I knew something was wrong with me, I knew I was not right. I looked drained, drowsy. I was done wrong. The title for [the next fight] is retaliation.
“It showed me their true colors. I’m not as nice as I used to be. I’m not the same person. My mind is very violent. Their best chance was earlier – July or October . They have allowed me to heal up. At this point in time, I’m very dangerous. The most dangerous person to be around is the one who has nothing to lose.”
