Deontay Wilder says he will never settle his bad blood with Tyson Fury.
Wilder and Fury have fought three times with Fury winning by knockout twice and the other being a draw. However, in the rematch, Wilder accused Fury of cheating and padding his gloves and with that, he says he will never settle his bad blood because he doesn’t like cheaters.
“Nah, never, because I know the truth behind that,” Wilder told FightHype.com. “I don’t condone cheating and s**t like that. I know that no matter what people say.”
Ever since Wilder made the claims about Fury cheating, people have told him he should have gone to the authorities if it was that bad. However, he didn’t think that it would accomplish it that much.
“It’s just like you got analysts that say ‘If he did have something in his glove why did you not go to the authorities?’” Wilder said. “I wish I was in front of them (the analysts) and I would grab their collar and put them close to my face so we can be eye to eye, face to face, so much that my breath touch their face, and I would tell them, ‘why the f— would I go to the authorities when I have an opportunity to release my own energy and put my hands up on him in the possibility of trying to kill him and get paid millions of dollars doing it.’ Why would I go to the authorities?…
“Ok [I] go to the authorities and they lock him up, then what’s next?” Wilder later added. “That’s it. A good writeup. OK, we proved our case. Nobody getting fed. What justice has that done? That don’t make no sense. That [criticism] sounds like somebody is non-confrontational, that [is not involved] in combat sports because their mindset is not set on combat, it’s set on being nice or — that theory don’t even make sense to me. We are in the hurt business. This is what we do. I can hurt you and get paid doing it. That sounds like a sweet deal to me.”
With Deontay Wilder still mad at Tyson Fury, he says he would be “most definitely” up to fighting him for the fourth time.
“Who[ever’s] here, they bring a hell of a fight, let’s do it,” Wilder said. “You know me, I’ve never ducked or dodged anyone. I’m the one that blessed people with opportunities.”
