Tyson Fury has taken to social media to send a “special message” to Deontay Wilder ahead of their hotly anticipated rematch next year. Fury and Wilder competed in one of the most thrilling heavyweight boxing matches in recent years back in 2018, with the fight controversially ending in a split decision draw.
Talk of a rematch was swiftly on the cards with fans eager to see the two fighters meet in the ring once again.
An agreement was reached over the summer for the rematch to take place on February 22 and, while a venue hasn’t been confirmed, it is expected to take place in Las Vegas.
As well as proving to be a blockbuster bout in the ring, the two charismatic figures were also dynamite when face-to-face in the build-up to the fight.
The pair exchanged in a war of words ahead of the bout a year ago, and it seems Fury has begun his fighting talk early once again.
“You go around fighting the best do you, giving the best the opportunities? You’ve only fought one good man in your career and that’s me and I beat you and everybody in the world knows you lost to the ‘Gypsy King’.
“A half-mast Gypsy King. A Gypsy King that was out of the ring for three year still beat you on 50 per cent.
“You’re getting busted next time I meet ya. I’ll have everything I’ve got on I beat you ya big dosser.
“I ain’t afraid of you. I ain’t bothered about you bum.
