Wilder sends gruesome warning to Fury ahead of trilogy showdown

Deontay Wilder has issued an x-rated warning to Tyson Fury ahead of their proposed trilogy showdown later this summer.

After much speculation regarding who both men will fight next, the pair have been forced to meet for a third time due to a court of arbitration ruling. Now, in the blink of an eye, the boxing world is attempting to wrap their heads around the prospect of this contest and what it may end up looking like.

“…so his mother wouldn’t even know who he was”

During a recent interview with 78 Sports TV, Wilder was particularly brutal when discussing how he sees it all going to go down in the third bout.

“Y’all don’t wanna miss this one. My mindset is just so different right now,” he said. “Even right now, I don’t even feel like I’m here.

“My mentality is – you’ve been contemplating about hurting a person so bad, to the point you wanna disfigure him so his mother wouldn’t even know who he was. 

“When you’ve had your mind on that, like you wanna decapitate him in every f****** way possible, it’s like that premeditated stuff. 

“When I do see him, I’m gonna love to see what I feel and what I’m thinking, how my senses change when he’s in my environment. I’ve been contemplating, premeditating whooping this man.

“Now that we have a date, like training has been even more intense.

“Those other camps, although they were intense, we had no guidance, no ETA, we just knew we wanted to stay in shape. Now it means something now. It’s for certain now. 

“There’s nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, you got to go through me. The hardest puncher in the heavyweight division, probably in history, and I’m going to continue to do that.”

Fury and Wilder are set to meet on July 24 in Las Vegas, potentially in the newly-built Allegiant Stadium.
