Tyson Fury brands Deontay Wilder "unstable" ahead of trilogy rematch
Tyson Fury has labelled Deontay Wilder unstable with their trilogy rematch nearing in Las Vegas.
The 'Gypsy King' will make his ring return against the American next weekend, and will be eyeing a repeat of their last meeting.
And Wilder gave a number of bizarre reasons for his comprehensive stoppage defeat, including his pre-fight costume.
Which in turn Fury has now branded "unstable" but has refused to underestimate the magnitude of the upcoming task.
“Do you know what it is with Wilder? He’s very unstable at the moment,” Fury told Boxing Scene. “And he has to figure out reasons why he lost the second fight.
"You know, he has to tell himself all this b******* and whatever else he says. But I don’t pay any heed to it. I just feel sorry for him because, you know, it must be hard to be undefeated for 10 years and knock out all of your opponents, and then fight me and lose and get knocked out in probably the most one-sided champion versus champion fight in history.
“I’ve never, ever seen a more one-sided beatdown of an undefeated world heavyweight champion than I did to Deontay Wilder in that second fight. So, I’m not sure how I would react if I got absolutely smashed to bits, like he did.
"But I guarantee it wouldn’t be like this, like a child. He’s like a kindergarten school child, making excuses why he didn’t get tagged. You didn’t tag me! And that’s what Deontay Wilder is, he’s an excuse-maker.”
The fight was set to take place in July, but the date was rescheduled after the Briton tested positive for coronavirus.
And the disruption continued for Fury, with his new-born daughter worryingly hospitalised with his camp set to resume.

But he has insisted that he will not make any excuses of his own, and has predicted another knockout on fight night.
“I don’t really make much of the excuses that were flying around for so long," Fury said on a virtual press conference.
"I think they just made him a weaker character and less of a man and less of a fighter because when you get beat, you get beat. Shake the man’s hand and move on. Lots of fighters have lost. Muhammad Ali lost fights; Mike Tyson lost fights.
"It’s what they do after they lose that makes them who they are. I don’t really have a lot to say about what Deontay Wilder was saying.
"It’s none of my concern because when some people lose, they have to make up an excuse for why they lost, and that’s what Wilder’s reason is for convincing himself about whatever happened. That’s up to him, so good luck to him in the fight, and we’ll see if he can do anything better."
Fury's clash with domestic rival Anthony Joshua has taken a hit after the Briton lost his belts to Oleskandr Usyk last weekend.
And the 33-year-old's promoter Frank Warren has appeared to rule out the clash for now in the aftermath of his second career blemish.
