Popular boxer, Deontay Wilder has come out to blast Tyson Fury for lying about having Covid-19 to get their trilogy fight postponed.
He recently slammed the boxer during a recent interview, and the world has been reacting.
According to him, Fury is simply doing everything possible to evade their scheduled fight and it is very tiring at this point.
Wilder added that he deserves to be awarded the WBC world strap and paid in full if Fury eventually pulls out.
His words, “I’m just tired of the lies. That’s all it is, lies.”
“That’s what I believe. And a lot of other people do too – the whole world believes it’s nothing but lies.”
“And it really sickens me to hear that because so many people have died of COVID.”
“People I know have had family members to die of it. To hear others using this as an excuse to get out of something is just horrible man.”
“May they burn in hell for that. Especially for something like this. Because the dude said he had COVID, then the next minute you see him in so many different places. It’s just ridiculous.”
“He’s been trying to run away from me since July of last year. He’s paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to avoid me.”
“They came up with so many excuses to try to avoid me. They contradict themselves so many different times and it’s just ridiculous at this point.”
“You need to put up or shut up.”
