DEONTAY WILDER has demanded Tyson Fury 'be a man' and honour their rematch clause.
Wilder was emphatically dethroned of the WBC belt by Fury in February, and later listed several excuses in a desperate attempt to explain the result.
As the reasons and accusations escalated to farcical levels, the Gypsy King revealed he feared for his rival's wellbeing and offered his support.
But Wilder appears uninterested in the proposal, instead wanting only another fight from Fury.
He tweeted: "Hey @Tyson_Fury , Don’t worry about me I am Fine, Blessed.
"The only thing I want from you is for you to honor your agreement and fight me. I gave you 2 shots when I didn’t have to and it changed your life.
"Now it is time for you to be a man and give me my shot as you agreed to."
Fury, 32, and Wilder, 35, were contracted to a third fight as part of the original deal they signed following their rematch.
But as fans were kept away amid the coronavirus, so was the Bronze Bomber's chance for revenge.
As a result, the immediate rematch clause expired with Fury instead now set to make his UK homecoming on December 5 against 28-year-old Agit Kabayel.
The fight will act as a tune up for a potential undisputed title decider with Anthony Joshua, 31, who faces Kubrat Pulev, 39, a week after.
Wilder, left frozen out, reacted furiously and uploaded a video online calling for a trilogy with Fury to be agreed.
But his case was hugely hampered after he accused the Gypsy King of 'cheating' by loading 'something hard' in his glove for both their bouts.
That is despite a member of his team and the athletic commission observing Fury having his hands wrapped and gloves fitted before both fights.
Wilder followed it up by later claiming his 'water was spiked' which left him with 'no control' over his body throughout his seven round beating.
The litany of excuses and accusations were all made with absolutely no evidence provided.
And despite appearing deluded by his first ever defeat, Wilder refuses to give up on forcing through a trilogy having now initiated a dispute resolution clause in his contract.
According to The Athletic, the American is attempting to enforce a third meeting inside the ring through mediation.
It has been reported that a retired judge will act as mediator where he will review the contracts that were signed for their February 22 fight.
Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel told the news outlet: "We’re going into it very optimistically this week."
