Tyson Fury has publicly told Deontay Wilder ‘don’t s*** yourself’ as negotiations continue for a rematch between them next year.
The pair’s first fight ended in a controversial draw last month – with many believing the ‘Gypsy King’ had done enough to claim his opponent’s WBC heavyweight title.
However, Wilder knocked Fury down twice and did just enough to keep hold of his belt.
Promoter Frank Warren has confirmed that negotiations are ongoing as both camps work on a return bout for the first part of 2019, meanwhile the former champion has returned to training.
In his first interview of 2019, the Fury told BT Sport: “I’m just maintaining my fitness really. I’m [as] fit now as I was then, same kind of thing.”
He then hilariously looked directly into the camera and issued a direct message to his opponent.
“I’m ready to fight. Wilder, let’s get the fight made, don’t s*** yourself now mate!”
