Tyson Fury taunts Deontay Wilder by wearing custom suit with secret message at trilogy fight press conference

TYSON FURY has revealed that his suit for last night’s trilogy fight press conference with Deontay Wilder had a hidden meaning.

The two bitter enemies came face-to-face in Las Vegas to officially announce their July 24 clash.

That was the first time Fury had clapped eyes on the American since he destroyed him Stateside in February 2020.

The Gypsy King floored the Bronze Bomber twice and stopped him in the seventh in their rematch following the controversial draw in their first meeting.

After Fury’s convincing triumph, Wilder accused him of cheating as he continued to roll out excuses for weeks.

And then just as it seemed WBC champ Fury was set to unify the heavyweight division and face fellow title holder Anthony Joshua, Wilder successfully enforced his legal right to the third fight.

However, last night the Englishman appeared keen to make Wilder remember the night from 14 months ago.

Fury, who even once turned up for a media outing dressed as Batman, wore a custom made suit for the press conference that was covered in images from his epic win over Wilder.

He told reporters: “This is a reminder of what happened to him last time.

“There’s me on the throne, there’s me dressed in the kings outfit, there’s me with the belt I won off him as well. This is a remembrance suit of Deontay Wilder’s a**e kicking.”

Meanwhile, Fury has cast major doubt over an undisputed heavyweight title fight with AJ by declaring himself no longer ‘interested’ in the bout.

Boxing fans across the globe are hoping the pair will throw down later this year, but WBC champ Fury is no longer bothered about facing his fellow Brit.

He told talkSPORT: “Undisputed and unifying jobs, it’s all bulls**t to me. I’m not interested.

“Whoever the fights are who is there and is available to fight, we fight.

“As for like undisputed and unified, I’ve done all that.

“I’ve done unification with [Wladimir] Klitschko, I’ve won all the belts before.

“Two-time world champion without being beat. I could just rattle on about what I’ve done for the next two hours. But we already know what I’ve done, we already know who I am.

“Boxing is boxing. Whether they fight, whether I fight, fine, that’s it.

“No matter if I fight a guy that’s absolutely rubbish or I fight the best guy in the world, I still train hard, I still dedicate [myself], I still sacrifice to it. You’ll never catch Tyson Fury on the off, ever.

“Because I know you never underestimate the underdog because I’ve been the underdog every single time in every single fight I’ve ever had. But I always come out on top.”
