On the heels of the news that Tyson Fury will face Anthony Joshua on August 14th in Saudia Arabia for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world, Fury had some words for his last opponent Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, who has been training with a new assistant trainer and former heavyweight Malik Scott King, has been blessing social media with pad work footage showing him learning new techniques.
However, to Tyson Fury, both Wilder and Malik Scott are not his favorite people.

“Malik Scott’s a b—h, and so is Deontay Wilder, ” said Fury to FightHype. “And i’ll fight both of them, one after the other, on the same night. And smack ‘em round, like p—ies what they are.”
Wilder received a ton of criticism for the way he handled his last fight, his first professional loss to Fury. Wilder disagreed with his former assistant trainer and boxing Olympic gold medalist Mark Breland’s decision to throw in the towel at the February 2020 bout.
He then began to blame everything from the weight of his ring walk wardrobe to potentially tainted drinking water in his bucket to Fury’s hands being plastered for the loss.
“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. And once I’ve got his heart and his mojo, it’s right here in my pocket. So, if you want them Deontay, come and fight the Gypsy King and come and take what I’ve got belonging to you.”
