Tyson Fury will NEVER face Wilder again after glove tampering claims and nobody can stop Anthony Joshua bout, says Arum

TYSON FURY will never fight Deontay Wilder again after the Bronze Bomber’s list of excuses for why he lost his WBC crown.

The Gypsy King’s co-promoter Bob Arum reassured fans that the American would not prevent Fury’s heavyweight showdown with Anthony Joshua.

Brit champ Fury inflicted Wilder’s first professional defeat when they clashed in the ring for the second time last February, following their initial bout ending in a draw.

But the one-sided nature of the fight hasn’t quelled a stream of excuses that have flowed ever since.

Among the reasons Wilder has blamed for his defeat have been his heavy ring-walk outfit and allegations that his drinking water had been spiked.

The Bronze Bomber also claimed that dodgy gloves allowed Fury to cut his ears with his fingernails – despite zero evidence.

And Arum has revealed that Wilder’s behaviour has ruined any chance of earning redemption in a trilogy bout.

He told to Barbershop Conversations: “There’s no mediation. I mean, there has been over Christmas, and New Year, there was mediation.

“I don’t know, maybe the mediator will be able to solve the situation, but we got a real problem because Tyson Fury has said to me and the mediator, ‘Not today, not tomorrow, and not ever’ will he ever fight Wilder after what Wilder said to him.

“He [Fury] regards is not only as a slur against him but against the Gypsy nation.”

Arum later stated that Fury won’t have to give up the green strap to pursue an all British unification showdown with Joshua.

He added: “Why would he have to release the [WBC] belt?

“I don’t want to get into any legalities, but the idea of anyone stopping the Fury – Joshua fight, it just can’t happen. The WBC belt isn’t an issue.”
