Tyson Fury has branded Deontay Wilder a ‘rat’ after the American claimed it would be an ‘easy knockout’ should they fight for a fourth time.
Fury and Wilder have shared the ring on three occasions, competing in what many fans rank as one of the most entertaining heavyweight trilogies ever.
One draw kicked off the contest – claimed as a win by both sides – before Fury steamed ahead with two stoppage victories.
Wilder hasn’t taken the defeats well, publicly accusing the man who ended his half-decade title reign of cheating in various ways.
Those allegations continued recently, when the KO artist from Alabama said he would easily stop Fury if the fought ‘without added preservatives.’
‘The Gypsy King’ has now responded – and he made his feelings clear.
“You are a [piece] of s**t! No good bum! I’ve spanked you three times. You have had a lot to say but when we came face to face your a*****e fell out. Nuff said.”
Fury finished his response by calling his three-time dance partner a rat.
With the way the heavyweight division currently finds itself, there may be a fourth fight some time soon. Wilder is currently ranked number one with the WBC, although he hasn’t been called as the mandatory challenger for Fury’s belt.
The Brit is instead expected to take on the number two, Andy Ruiz Jr. Should he do so and win, an undisputed fight with Oleksandr Usyk could be revisited towards the end of the year.
As for Wilder, he’s been heavily linked to face Anthony Joshua at the end of the year, with a fight in the interim expected. It’s a match up that has been built for years now and, despite both men losing their titles since then, the intrigue remains.
Again, if it happens and ‘The Bronze Bomber’ comes out victorious, it’s not much of a leap to see him in with Fury before they both hang up the gloves – whether fans want to see it or not.
