Deontay Wilder brands Tyson Fury ‘one of the biggest cheats in boxing’ as he ramps up trash talk ahead of trilogy fight

DEONTAY WILDER has ramped up his war of words with Tyson Fury by branding the Brit ‘one of the biggest cheats in boxing.’

The Bronze Bomber will renew his rivalry with the Wythenshawe warrior on October 9 in a Las Vegas trilogy fight.

Wilder, 35, was stopped by Fury in their rematch last February but came up with a number of farfetched excuses for his first professional loss.

And ahead of their Sin City series decider, the American has made reference to Fury’s failed drug test following his February 2015 victory over Christian Hammer.

He told 78SPORTSTV: “Look at Tyson Fury‘s rap sheet, he’s one of the biggest cheats in boxing, but do you ever hear about it?

“They don’t care.

“When it’s all said and done, all over for me, I can look myself in the face, in the mirror and say, ‘I did it the right way.”

Fury, 33, tested positive for the banned anabolic steroid nandrolone following his eighth-round TKO victory over Germany’s Hammer.

Following a long and drawn out case with UK Anti-Doping, The Gyspy King was suspended for two years in December 2017 – though his period of ineligibility was backdated to February 2015.

Wilder has been vocal about the use of performance-enhancing drugs in the sport, adding: “All these fighters taking these PEDs, you’re cowards.

“It’s pitiful… It’s all about money, boxing’s all about money.

“It seems the people that have power in boxing don’t care either because they’re making excuses for these cowards.”

The third instalment of Fury vs Wilder was due to take place in July but ended up being postponed as the former caught Covid-19.

And Wilder believes the Brit could end up pulling out their clash again.

He said: “If he don’t show up he’s going to have to suffer the consequences, the penalties that’ve been set forth.

“If he don’t fight, then pay me what you’re supposed to pay me.

“Then you have to give up that belt as well.

“So it’s a win-win situation for me, it’s a lose-lose situation for him.

“That’s the great thing about it cause, the saying has always said that history repeats itself.

“We know his actions are always the same, he’s done this many of times where he tries to get out of fights.

“He has had a door to escape from. But at this moment in time he has no more doors, no options.

“He has to put up or shut up, fight or retire. Either fight and give me my money or give up that belt.

“It’s a win-win situation for me and with that being said I can sleep at night.”
