Former WBC champion, Deontay Wilder vow to defeat current WBC champion, Tyson Fury ahead of their third fight in Las Vegas on July 24.
Speaking at this month’s pre-match press conference, Fury had told Wilder that he would build his weight up to 300lbs to ‘run him over like I’m an 18-wheeler.’
But Wilder has posted his response on social media after appearing to lift a 310lb weight that would be bigger than Fury’s envisioned weight.
“I’m going be a train,” said Wilder. “You say a semi-truck, I’m going to run you over with a train, baby.
“310 [lbs]! You better get your weight up.”
Recall that Fury was ordered to face Wilder by an arbitration judge, a judgment that derailed plans for an undisputed world title fight against Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia this summer.
