Fury and Wilder get ready for final war

October 7, 2021

Was it for real? Was it for show? Often in boxing it’s hard to tell what is part of the “theatre” production, but there certainly seems to be no love lost between giant heavyweights Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. They held their final press conference ahead of this weekend’s title fight showdown – and it was another bad-tempered affair.

The Brit and the American have met twice before. The first bout ended in a controversial draw where neutrals suggested that Fury, despite being having his lights tripped in the 12th round, had done enough to win. In the second fight though, Wilder was dominated before being stopped in the seventh round.

Most experts feel that Fury will win this third, and probably last, meeting between the two.

Wilder has accused Fury of tampering with his gloves for the second fight to inflict more damage.

Wilder had also accused former trainer Mark Breland of spiking his own water, as well as blaming a heavy costume used during his ring walk for making him tired.

Wilder stood by his various cheating claims when quizzed on them. “I will go to my grave believing in what I believe in,” Wilder said. “I know things for a fact. I have confirmation and clarity over a lot of things. Men lie, women lie, but your eyes don’t lie what they see.”

But Wilder’s comments were dismissed by Fury as the words of an “unwell person.”

“He accused me of everything, accused his team, his trainer, the suit, injuries. Who else did he accuse – oh yeah, the Nevada State Athletic Commission, they were in on it as well. And the referee,” said Fury (30-0-1, with 21 knockouts).

“Maybe if he’d come out with one of these excuses it would have been believable – but not 15, come on. He can believe what he wants. But what it tells me is that he’s a weak mental person, who I will knock spark out on Saturday night.”

Asked for his final comments, Wilder, replied: “I just tell you guys to prepare yourselves for the battlefield and get ready for war.”
