Deontay Wilder continues to put pressure on Tyson Fury and asks the current WBC champion to “honor the deal”. The 'bronze bomber' took to Twitter to agree on the statements made by his boxing rival on Wednesday.
Sport is such that someone wins and someone loses, and it will always be that way. Great athletes always accepted defeat and moved on, continued to train even harder, believe and achieve success. Deontay Wilder doesn’t seem to be one of those.
The defeat by Furry affected him and his mental state that he found too many reasons why he lost. Fury had something to say to his statements "I think Wilder is having bigger problems than boxing right now. I'm pretty worried about his mental health," the 'Gypsy King' said as he talked about the heavyweight who snatched the WBC title in February and thus inflicted the first defeat of his career.
"We all don't want to be defeated after so much undefeated, but there has to be a point where you accept defeat and move on. And Wilder doesn't seem to be able to do that. He has all those malicious feelings in him and he makes all those excuses."
"I'm very worried about his mental state after this defeat because he goes public with funny statements and I'm not sure what's going on.But I always say, I'm only one phone call away and if I can help in any way, then I would give him the best possible advice."
"But continue like this he is behaving, it seems to me that the fight has really affected his mental state, ”talkSPORT quoted Fury’s thinking.
And on Wednesday night, Wilder posted his response via social media.
"Tyson, don't worry about me. I'm fine and blessed. All I want from you is for you to honor our agreement and fight me. I gave you two chances when I shouldn't and it changed your life. Now it's your turn. To be a man and give me my chance, and that’s what you agreed to, ”the American knockout said.
Recall, Fury and Wilder are still fighting a battle over what their contract actually says. While the American claims that according to the clause he has the right to a rematch, the British striker and his team believe that the deadline for the third match has expired, and it is Wilder and his men who are to blame for such an outcome.
