Deontay Wilder: I knocked ‘boring’ Tyson Fury out, all he’s got is his mouth!
Deontay Wilder elaborated further on how he could potentially hamper Tyson Fury’s recent deal with ESPN.
The WBC heavyweight champion is facing up to a lower-key fight with Dominic Breazeale on May 18 after Fury pulled the plug on their rematch late on.
Clearly irate at Fury walking away to join forces with Top Rank, Bob Arum and the US TV network, Wilder let rip on a recent radio appearance.
“If I keep this attitude up, ESPN is going to be very hurt. You know because Fury is a boring fighter. The only good he got is in his mouth,” Wilder told Sirius XM Fight Nation 93.
“The only reason people laugh (at Fury) is because they laugh at him and not with him. It’s because he has a British accent coming over here in this country. That’s it.
“Other than that he’s a very very boring fighter. People will not deal with it, especially not over here in America. Now Fury is redundant. That’s another no, no (backing out of a fight). We don’t deal with here in America.
“When you talk all this stuff and then you know back it up. Then you go the other way and you do it on purpose. People don’t like that man.
“In this country, we don’t go on moral victories But I didn’t need to fight you no more. I beat you, I knocked you out,” he added.
Wilder was alluding to Fury being dropped in the twelfth and final round of the December collision.
Posting a video previously, Wilder believes there was a slow count. Fury was suggested to have been down for well over ten seconds, although that theory didn’t gather pace.
The pair could potentially meet in the future, but Wilder would have to agree the fight on Fury’s terms despite a 50-50 deal being in place for the return until last week.
