Deontay Wilder has told Tyson Fury he is 'tired of the lies' and has warned his rival 'there's no stopping me' ahead of their highly-anticipated trilogy fight.
Wilder, 35, was originally supposed to fight Fury for the third time on July 24 but that was put on hold with Fury sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19.
The Gypsy King then spent several weeks at home following the birth of his daughter and his clash with Wilder has now been rescheduled for October 9.
However, The Bronze Bomber has insisted he isn't buying his 'excuses' anymore.
'He came up with so many excuses to try to avoid me'
"I was very disappointed," Wilder told 78SPORTSTV.
"We trained very hard as we always do, and I was ready to go, I was ready to display my talent to the world.
"Just tired of the lies. That's all it is, lies, and a lot of other people do to, the whole world believes it's nothing but lies.
"And it really sickened me to hear that because so many people have died of COVID.
"I've had people I've known have had family members to die of it, I've had some of my people to die of it, and to hear others using this as an excuse or anything else to get out of something is just horrible.
"May they burn in hell for that, especially for something like this, because the dude said he had COVID and the next minute you see him in so many different places, it's just ridiculous.
"He been trying to run away from me since July of last year. He paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to avoid me. He came up with so many excuses to try to avoid me.
"They contradict themselves so many times, and it's just ridiculous at this point, you just either put up or shut up."
'They had their greatest chance back in July'
Wilder also says that Fury missed his 'greatest chance' to beat him two months ago when the fight was originally scheduled.
"We've been ready and we're going to stay ready," he added.
"It's nothing to a king, I take it for what it is, I slip the punches and come back even stronger.
"One thing for sure the longer they gave me time the better and better I become.
"They had their greatest chance back in July.
"At this point in time there's no stopping me. I'm on a mission. All of our minds are on violence.
"The whole army is violent right now and we're just ready to release this energy in the ring.
"I'm just looking forward to what happens on October 9th."News Now - Sport News
