Deontey Wilder known as The Bronze Bomber, has lately been in attacking mode against Tyson Fury and his own previous trainer whom he fired following his last lost to new WBC champion, Tyson Fury.
In his latest rant, the dethroned WBC champion called Fury ‘a coward’ and ‘a cheat’, after condemning his own former trainer Mark Breland for allegedly conspiring against him in their last bout last February.
Fury and Wilder were due to have their trilogy in the summer, but this was postponed to December due to the pandemic. The postponement itself was eventually cancelled, leading to Fury deciding to sideline the American in pursuit of a replacement fight expected to be a catalyst to a unification clash with undisputed world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua.
A U.S mediator is understood to be examining the contract, to decide whether their are contractual terms in there that entitle the American to the agreed rematch even after the expressed time limit for the rematch expires.
Wilder told Brian Custer’s Last Stand Podcast: “You can see me back in the ring sometime in the first week of January, the latest early February and we’re looking through opponents now.
“We’re not going to sit around and wait on a coward that has an obligation to fulfil but ran away from it.
“We’re not going to sit around, we’ve got to get back in the ring. I’ve got a lot of fans looking forward to me stepping back into the ring and doing what I do best.
“I’ve been ready since September. You’re not a man of your word, you’re not fulfilling your obligation.
“I helped you out, I put millions in your pocket, I made you relevant, now it’s time for you to do the same thing, that’s all we’re saying.
“They sat around, it was their obligation to put the fight on. They waited all the way till October came, then talking about we abandoned the contract. That’s a lie!”
Wilder continued : “I’m not excusing the costume, the costume had a little weight on it, but it wasn’t enough to make me feel the way I felt in the ring, it wasn’t enough to not have my legs.
“I’ve been preaching for five years, don’t ever throw in the towel with Deontay Wilder, Deontay Wilder is never out until it’s over with, because of my heart and will and the power I possess.
“I do feel like he (Breland) was a part of it and it’s not for me to explain to anyone. I let out my emotions, I said it, people can believe what they want.
“Fury’s a known cheater and you can go back to the rap sheet and history of him cheating even with the Klitschko fight.
“I haven’t yet heard valid proof of how gloves flap all the way back, why your hands were in the bottom of the glove.
“Why did my ear have scratches deep inside my ear because of your nails? We have so much proof but it just shows you got to cheat me to beat me.”
Fury became the first heavyweight to roundly beat and stop Wilder, after their first controversial fight that resulted in a draw, but which many commentators believed the brit won. Wilder has been criticised for not accepting defeat gracefully.
