The former WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder has launched a fresh attack on his fierce rival, Tyson Fury.

Wilder has claimed that Fury will need ‘funeral arrangements’ if they were to fight again and has stated that ‘The Gypsy King’ cheated during their second fight back in February.

Speaking to Barbershop Conversations per talkSPORT, Wilder said:

“I want them bad, I want them bad.

“You better make the funeral arrangements. And when it happens I’m coming to spit on their tomb. I’m coming to spit on every last one of them.”

This is not the first time that the Alabama fighter has used similar sinister threats. In the build up to his fight against Dominic Breazeale in 2019, Wilder said that his opponent could die in the ring.

While in 2017 Wilder made similar remarks regarding another former opponent, Bermane Stiverne:

“His life is on the line for this fight…. and I do mean his life.”

‘The Bronze Bomber’ also believed that Fury used a loaded glove during their title match in Las Vegas and insisted that his water was spiked just moments before he was due to fight the Brit.

Wilder said: “The reason I draw my sword in the ring is to live by it and to die by it. He’s on the hitlist. That’s what I want.

“They know they can’t beat me fair and square. He can’t. He knew that from the first time.

“The second time they did what they had to do and they still couldn’t keep that black man down.”

The American also insisted that his then trainer, Mark Breland, who he split from last month, was in on the plot:

“Because I believe he was part of it. He was part of it. And, even more so, I think he’s got something to do with my water as well too.

“He was the only one handling my water. He was the only one. I have strong sources.”


‘The Gypsy King’ has yet to respond to Wilder’s comments but admitted earlier this that he has moved on from a trilogy fight:

“I was looking forward to smashing Wilder again. A quick and easy fight,” Fury told the Athletic,

“But Wilder and his team we’re messing around with the date.”

Fury is next due to fight in the UK on December 5 against an as of yet unnamed opponent but as for Wilder, he clearly plans to not go quietly:

“Coward, stop ducking the fight. Coward, don’t weasel out of this fight.

“My presence, my preaches, my anointment from God continues. You cannot stop it.”
