Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder is upset about the prolonged delay of his trilogy with reigning and undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
“He came up with so many excuses to try to avoid me. I was very disappointed,” Wilder said in 78SPORTSTV.
The deciding match was supposed to occur last July 24, but it was rescheduled after Fury contracted coronavirus.
After overcoming the virus, Fury spent some time with his newborn daughter as their fight is now marked on October 9.
“We trained very hard as we always do, and I was ready to go. I was ready to display my talent to the world.”
“Just tired of the lies. That’s all it is, lies, and a lot of other people do too. The whole world believes it’s nothing but lies.”
Wilder claimed that Fury didn’t contract the virus and slammed the champion for using the deadly virus as an excuse.
“And it sickened me to hear that because so many people have died of COVID.
“I’ve had people I’ve known have had family members to die of it, I’ve had some of my people to die of it, and to hear others using this as an excuse or anything else to get out of something is just horrible.
“May they burn in hell for that, especially for something like this, because the dude said he had COVID, and the next minute you see him in so many different places, it’s just ridiculous.
