The Pre-Fight Talk Ahead Of Fury Vs. Wilder III Has Really Got NASTY

It is amidst threats of committing “a legalised homicide,” and of talk of one fighter “being dead,” or “an invalid,” that we close in on the third fight between genuinely bitter rivals Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. The third fight – postponed from July 24 to October 9 – was met with talk of the “legalised homicide” from Wilder, who sounds as though he really means it when he says he wants revenge over Fury in the worst possible way. And now, John Fury, father of Tyson, has declared how the upcoming third fight will “cost him (Wilder) his career and his life, probably.”

Failing that, Fury Snr said, Wilder will “be an invalid” at the conclusion of the third fight. As fight fans, yet also sports fans, we hope to see neither ghastly scenario unfold. Where is the sense of sportsmanship from both sides when it comes to this fight? Have both sides gone way too far with the X-rated horror stuff?

Boxing is, as we know, the single most dangerous sport in the world, and it’s also the most physically and mentally demanding. Yet at the end of almost any fight YOU can think of, no matter how intense the rivalry (be it for one fight or for five or six fights) the two combatants shook hands and even embraced. Do you think there is any chance in hell Wilder and Fury will ever, ever shake hands and embrace? Not going by the nasty, sickening words the two have had for each other they won’t.

God forbid one of these two stars of the heavyweight division does get badly or permanently hurt on October 9. This is not what we want, although there are serious threats from both sides that this is what we and the sport will get.

Let’s ask the question: has trash-talking gone way too far over the past few years or so? Should fighters or their team members be penalised for making what, let’s be honest, amount to death threats? In the case of this fight, the nasty talk is not down to ticket sales, as in an attempt to improve them. No, Fury and Wilder mean their meanness. They each want to hurt the other guy, and bad. It’s very bad.

Neither Muhammad Ali nor Joe Frazier never publicly stated their very real desire to kill each other (although it came out in Frazier’s biography that he did pray to God to give him the strength to “kill this scambooga”), yet they never, ever made up and put their rivalry to bed before they both passed away. Fury and Wilder seem set to walk down a similar path.

  1. Fury have to be the biggest disgrace in boxing. A crack head a alcoholic fat dude. Yes he got some boxing skills but his a real c**t.i wish wilder knocks
    Him out cold!

  2. Can’t honestly see Wilder beating Fury.
    Much as I dislike Fury, he can box.
    Didn’t see a lot in Wilder last time around.

  3. Fury clearly was not ready for this and Wilder needs to stop with conspiracy excuses. He fought a rested Fury 2.5 months after Ortiz (most avoided heavyweight) came in 12 pounds heavier and wore a dumb suit into the ring and got what happens when you make those dumb moves. The third fight will be a classic!

  4. Looks like Fury is a little worried this time ! Putting the fight off to give himself more time to train ! He knew he wasn’t ready for this.
    Personally I can’t stand fury he the worst heavyweight champion of all time.

  5. Wilder is the cause of all this. A baby who can’t face the fact that he lost. He cant box and he has one punch. Fought a bunch of bums before Fury. I hope he loses and we never have to hear his bs again.

    • Clubbing on back of head WWE style ( except real) rabbit punching, head locking… and you’re saying what cheating…let alone all of the scandalous non title defense controversy this Fury dude has done. Horrible representative of a champion and a disgrace to the sport.

  6. According to my side, yes they are all greatest fights all the time, but deontay wilder he is the man that I know he can fight, infect he is my guy

    • Wow … wilder is your guy you know he can fight haha … wilder has got scary power and that’s it … fury bounces him around the ring again 🥊

    • Infect. Yup. Wilder is a disease. A wart on the ass of boxing with his twerking, wanting to be pregnant, excuse making: Brel and spiked my water, fury had egg weights, my costume was too heavy, etc. etc. etc.
