Tyson Fury Issues Hilarious Message To Deontay Wilder Ahead Of Potential Rematch

Tyson Fury's publicly told Deontay Wilder 'don't sh*t yourself' as talks are underway over a potential rematch.

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fought to a controversial split-draw last December.

Wilder dropped Fury twice including a brutal knockdown in the final round, though the challenger heroically got off the canvas in a jaw-dropping moment.

Fury enjoyed large portions of the contest as he boxed Wilder's head off with plenty of fans and experts thinking he had done enough to be named the new WBC heavyweight world champion.

However, the dramatic 12th round completely changed the course of the fight as the judges controversially scored a split-draw.

Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, has confirmed the rematch is being discussed with the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' already back in training ahead of a second meeting.

He's looking in great shape and his pre-fight talk is also up to scratch.

In an interview with BT Sport, Fury issued a hilarious message to his heavyweight rival: "I'm just maintaining my fitness really. I'm [as] fit now as I was then, same kind of thing.

"I'm ready to fight. Wilder, let's get the fight made, don't s*** yourself now mate!"

In 2018, Fury lost a serious amount of weight as he mapped out his return to boxing. He went from 400 lbs to being in peak physical condition on that night in Los Angeles.

And he hasn't ballooned up in weight over Christmas/New Year, maintaining a trim look as he undergoes training preparation.

The 30-year-old has ventured to Marbella as he awaits his next assignment.

Wilder vs. Fury II...? We sure hope so.
