Tyson Fury (left) and Deontay Wilder face off ahead of their trilogy fight
Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will face off in their trilogy fight on 9 October and the American will be attempting to win back his WBC belt.
Fury stripped Wilder of the title in February 2020 and the war of words since has been ongoing which has only intensified as the fight moves closer.
The biggest talking point in the lead up has been Wilder accusing Fury of lying about his positive Covid result in order to duck the fight. The Brit had to postpone the bout after catching the virus in July.
Wilder told 78SportsTV: “People I know have had family members to die of it. To hear others using this as an excuse to get out of something is just horrible, man.
“May they burn in hell for that. Especially for something like this. Because the dude said he had Covid, then the next minute you see him in so many different places. It’s just ridiculous. He’s been trying to run away from me since July of last year. He’s paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to avoid me.
