Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury exchange tweets about '£80m' ESPN deal

Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury shared aggressive Twitter exchanges once again last night as it is now looks like the American will fight Dominic Breazeale instead of the hotly anticipated rematch with the ‘Gypsy King’.

Despite their controversial draw back in December, and originally being ordered to have a rematch by the WBC, Wilder and Fury will now go their separate ways for the time being, with the Bronze Bomber likely to fight Breazeale in May.

In Wilder’s tweet, he films promoter Bob Arum’s view on and how much money Fury would potentially earn.

He said: “Tyson Fury will end up upward of £100 million dollars, but to use that figure and say that it is certainty is just not accurate.”

Along with the video clip, Wilder tweeted: “Stop being a CloutChasingHoe @Tyson_Fury your boss said that’s not close to being accurate in fact that deal was made off the hopes of a rematch with me and if I don’t bless you again your F***d you big boring no power #Dosser I’m the Champ but hey don’t take my word just wait...”

Fury had just recently signed with ESPN for a rumoured £80 million deal which is what Wilder is potentially angered by.

With Wilder signed to Showtime, it appears to be hard to find any sort of agreement between the fighters.

Not letting Wilder have the final say, Fury hit back and replied: “Is somebody a touch jealous? DELUDED they sign me coz they want you WOW stop trying to promote yourself using me. Desperate times = desperate measures You only get signed to be a workman #DOSSER.”

It is now clear that Fury will fight another opponent before the rematch with Wilder, but it leaves more frustration for fight fans because we are not getting the fights we want.

It seems as though we will have to wait before the big fights happen.

Anthony Joshua v Wilder, Joshua v Fury and, of course, Fury v Wilder II.
