British heavyweight Tyson Fury has hit out at WBC champion Deontay Wilder after their proposed rematch fell through, the Daily Mail report.
The pair, who were involved in a heated build-up last year ahead of their fight, clashed in Los Angeles back in December.
Fury looked to have done enough to claim a remarkable comeback win over the American, however, Wilder escaped with a split decision draw after flooring the self-proclaimed ‘Gyspy King’ in rounds nine and 12.
Following the draw, both camps have been involved in complex negotiations, with Wilder now likely to face off against Dominic Breazeale next after calling off a proposed rematch with Fury.
And taking to iFL TV, Fury, who has also been linked with an all-British showdown with Anthony Joshua, didn’t wait long to lash out at the American.
Yeah, I’m going to have another fight in between and then I’m going to deal with Deontay the bronze silly c***. Excuse my French.
Deontay Wilder has been offered the fight to fight me on ESPN and he’s turned it down. So his a*** is twitching. Twitch, twitch, twitch. I’m not bothered. Whatever it is, it is.
Fury, who recently announced his wife, Paris, had given birth to their fifth child, is expected to return to the ring later this year, with his opponent yet to be announced.
Who could Tyson Fury fight next?
New Zealander Joseph Parker’s two professional defeats came against Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte. The 27-year-old is also working with ESPN, which could put him in line for a clash with Fury.
Colombian Oscar Rivas is currently undefeated in his 26 professional fights. Rivas defeated Bryant Jennings back in January and could be an interesting opponent for Fury.
Perhaps the most attractive fight for Fury next, fellow Brit Dillian Whyte enjoyed a successful 2018. Whyte was in line for a potential rematch with Anthony Joshua, so could well be up for a clash with Fury later in the year.
Experienced heavyweight Kubrat Pulev recently defeated Fury’s cousin, Hughie. However, Pulev is set to take on Bogdan Dinu in March, which could rule him out as Fury’s next opponent if the Brit wants to fight in May.
American Bryant Jennings has suffered three defeats in his career to Wladimir Klitschko, Luis Ortiz and Oscar Rivas and could be a suitable opponent for Fury next.
