Tyson Fury has had some choice word for old foe Deontay Wilder, calling the American out for embracing him after he had accused Fury of cheating in their previous fights.
Wilder aired some outlandish accusations the way of Fury after the pair’s second fight, blaming everything from tampered gloves to spiked water for his defeat.
However, Fury did tell Boxing King Media that he harbours no long term resentment over the comments from ‘The Bronze Bomber.’
“He obviously feels guilty, as he’s come over and hugged me, after all that he’s accused me of. But it was what it was, let bygones be bygones – no harm done.”
Fury and Wilder were in Saudi Arabia for the former’s brother Tommy’s split decision win over Jake Paul at the Diriyah Arena last night.
Wilder said post fight that he thought the wrong man won and that Paul should have been awarded the victory – an opinion that clearly did not go down well with WBC heavyweight champion Fury.
“I don’t care what he thinks, he’s a t***er isn’t he?”
After sharing one of the great heavyweight trilogies of all time, Fury and Wilder have remarkably been linked to a fourth fight this April, if the Brit cannot agree an undisputed showdown with Oleksandr Usyk.
As the touted date of April 29th at Wembley Stadium draws ever nearer, there are growing concerns emerging amongst fans that the historic bout between Fury and Usyk may fall through.
There were rumours earlier this month that talks had been had with Wilder’s team about yet another meeting, however representatives from team Fury have denied this.
Queensberry stablemate Joe Joyce and former UFC star Francis Ngannou are also said to be in the running if the undisputed fight does not materialise.
