And American Wilder reckons The Gypsy King tried to get out of his contractual obligation to face him because he’s afraid of losing their third showdown.

“For what reason? We know the reason and he knows the reason.

“I’m ready to get this title back. We were contractually obligated to have a fight.

“He gave his word. When you do all that – and we have the proof – you’ve got to abide by that.

“You got to handle the business, and you can’t close the chapter without going through Deontay Wilder.”

Wilder and Fury, 35 and 32 respectively, are set to renew their rivalry on July 24 at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium.

Alabama bruiser Wilder is relishing the opportunity to settle the score with Fury, who ended his five-year reign as WBC champ last February.

He said: “Now that we have an ETA and location of where we’re about to go, it makes training much more intensified. Now it means something. It’s for certain now.”

“There’s nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. You’ve got to go through me.

Deontay Wilder has vowed to make Tyson Fury pay for trying to get out of their trilogy fight

Wilder has enlisted the help of former foe Malik Scott for his third clash with the former unified heavyweight champion.

And Scott is brimming with confidence ahead of the pair’s latest meeting.

He told 78SPORTSTV: “We built a facility to do a licensed homicide. Deontay Wilder is not playing. He built a facility to get this job done.

“When he wakes up and rolls out of bed it’s right to work. Everything we’re doing he’s right to work.”

He later added: “I’ve never seen it before from him like this at this level.

“I’m proud of him already for what we’re about to get done.”
