Deontay Wilder has blasted Tyson Fury for his withdrawal from their trilogy fight this month before insisting their third meeting will be ‘easy’ work.
Fury-Wilder III was postponed from July 24 to October 9 after the ‘Gypsy King’ tested for positive for Covid-19 earlier this month.
Rumours subsequently surfaced that WBC heavyweight champion Fury had been dropped and hurt in sparring though such whispers are commonplace in boxing.
Nevertheless, Wilder’s loyal band of diehard supporters raised an eyebrow at Fury’s withdrawal and the ‘Bronze Bomber’ seems in little doubt that all is not as it seemed.
Posting a picture with trainer Malik Scott on his @Bronzebomber Instagram account, Wilder said: “Yo bro, @malikkingscott say it ain’t so… not the Covid-19 lie.
“They’re going to hell for that one!!! October 9 cannot come any faster. This will be easy.”
After falling in seven rounds to Fury in their February 2020 rematch, Wilder has made a series of excuses for that heavy defeat including a heavy ring walk outfit, tampered gloves and spiked water.
