Tyson Fury has admitted to WBC, Ring Magazine and Linear Boxing Champion that he has talked to opponent Deontay Wilder once after defeating him in February ahead of a December rematch.
Since Wilder lost his WBC title in embarrassing fashion to Fury, he has been quiet as their trilogy fight inches closer to the December target date, prompting rumors that he may not take the fight.
Over the years, Fury and Wilder often exchanged tweets and text messages, but Wilder went quietly after he met him in March, according to Fury, to insult him.
When asked whether Wilder had learned of the trilogy, Fury told White and Jordan on TalkSPORT, "I didn't know a thing."
“He took a FaceTime from me in March.
“I called him a bit of a big dosser and then he didn’t answer the phone to me ever again.”
“I’m supposed to be boxing on December 19 in Las Vegas against Deontay Wilder in the trilogy, but every two days I hear a different story; they’re trying to bring it forward a week or put it back a week, whatever.
“The one thing I want to announce to the world is I will be fighting in December, whether it’s Wilder in Las Vegas, or if it’s Joe Bloggs in England.
“I want to fight now! I’m ready to go today, tomorrow, next week or the next couple of months.
“I made it very clear that if we can’t fight in America I want to come back to the UK and do a homecoming.”
