Tyson Fury needed to take up speaking for 2 at at this time’s press convention to formally announce, as Deontay Wilder sat silent in a chair on stage after making a short opening remark, refusing to take questions from the media or develop on anything.
“Sufficient stated. Time to chop off his head,” Wilder stated. “Come July twenty fourth, there can be bloodshed.”
It’s unclear if this was meant to be a rap. If that’s the case, the supply was just a little stilted.
“All this bloodshed stuff, not so sure. Heard all of it earlier than, to be honest,” Fury replied. “He stated this final time — ‘decapitation,’ ‘bloodshed,’ all that, and everyone knows what went down there.”
“I sit up for the problem. I hope he’s going to carry one thing totally different than the final time — he must, let’s face details,” Fury added. “I do know he’s taken on (new coach) Malik (Scott), very skilled man in boxing, had plenty of fights himself. Let’s hope he can carry the perfect out of Deontay Wilder.”
Fury had ideas on Wilder not answering questions, too.
“It exhibits how weak of a psychological particular person he’s, and the way a lot the beating within the final combat took from him emotionally in his life. I used to be fearful about Deontay Wilder for fairly some time,” he stated. “Clearly he’s doing his little factor together with his earphones on, and doesn’t need to reply any questions. That’s as much as him, however I’m right here to advertise a combat.”
Fury stated he expects we’ll see the identical Deontay Wilder we at all times have seen, and predicted he’ll end him faster than he did in 2020.
“Deontay Wilder’s a one-trick pony, he’s obtained one-punch energy. Everyone knows that. Nice. What I’m going to do that time, is I’m going to run him over like I’m an 18-wheeler and he’s a human being,” he stated.
“I assure he doesn’t go previous the place he did earlier than. I’m constructing my weight up, I’m making an attempt to stand up to 300 lbs for this combat, as a result of I’m in search of an enormous knockout immediately. I don’t imagine he’s mentally, bodily, or emotionally concerned on this combat. I believe he’s doing it for the unsuitable causes. When individuals do issues for the unsuitable causes, they at all times wind up getting damage.”
The 2 engaged in a protracted staredown to finish the press convention, neither budging even when Crystina Poncher instructed them to show and face the cameras as an alternative of each other. At that time, the entourages for each fighters joined the stage, as did safety, who had no issues with the fighters however might have with the hangers-on, probably. As a substitute, the riff raff repeated catchphrases and jargon at each other, earlier than Wilder ultimately left, which Fury’s buddies took as an enormous win.
