Wilder labels Fury a 'clown'

3rd September 2019, 19:21 by Nick Harris

Deontay Wilder claims Tyson Fury is not preparing properly for their rematch in Las Vegas next February.

The pair fought out an epic draw last December, where many had Fury well ahead, but then he looked down and out only to rise to his feet after having been felled by Wilder late on.

Fury is now lined up to fight Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin as he builds up to a return bout with Wilder, with claims the duo were picked out because they are tall like Wilder.

Others claim they have been picked because of their limited ability, and Wilder agrees.

He told 78sportstv: "He ain't preparing properly to fight me. He's not trying to take challenges. Of course, he's using my name. I'm connected to him. He has no one else. What else is he going to say? Fury is not what he thinks he is.

"He knows it. He has to act out of character, and he has to be this clown."

He added: "He's a 6'9″ clown. People are not laughing with him. They are laughing at him, and I don't see how he can't see these things."
