Tyson Fury has been less than complimentary to WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder following the American’s knockout win this past weekend against Cuban challenger Luis Ortiz.
32-year-old Wilder extended his professional record to 40-0-39KO this past weekend with a tenth round stoppage of Ortiz.
The fight saw him win plaudits worldwide for his ability to come back from been hurt in round seven to then close the show in spectacular fashion.
His old friend and former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury was not one of those people however.
Speaking on UK television, Fury said:
“I saw Deontay Wilder the other night (against Ortiz). He looked s***. He’s made for me.”
29-year-old Fury (25-0-18KO) is currently in preparations for a comeback fight to the sport which as of yet, has not been confirmed officially in terms of an opponent or venue.
All signs are pointing to a summer return for Fury, or possibly a May bout, as he has been steadily losing weight over the past few months.
Fury is now trainer under a new head coach Ben Davison and is thought to be in negotiations of announcing a new promoter any day now.
Earlier this week Fury promised big news is imminent on social media.
