Deontay Wilder sensationally admitted that he doesn't care about Floyd Mayweather's planned boxing return.
Wilder questioned the timing of Mayweather's announcement only two days before his rematch with Luis Ortiz last year.
'Money' announced his comeback to some form of fighting on November 21 last year, two days before the anticipated rematch between Wilder and Luis Ortiz.
He has since decided to backtrack on the claims but the timing of the announcement didn't sit well with the 'Bronze Bomber'.
Mayweather's company was a co-promoter of the Wilder-Ortiz show, which was distributed by FOX Sports.
When Wilder was asked this question by YouTube channel Tha Boxing Voice, he said:
"I have no idea,You know what I mean? I mean, it's so many different things that could be said about it. But, you know, it is what it is. Let him do what he do. You know, whether he come back or not, that's up to him. Personally, I really don't care."
"It's not stopping nothing over here. Even if he announced something during that time, as you can see, it didn't stop nothing. And it's not gonna stop nothing."
Wilder continued on the YouTube channel saying that Mayweather doesn't change anything and that he's big enough on his own to not be overshadowed:
"I'm my own entity. I'm my own man. I do my own thing. And my reputation and where I'm going, no one is gonna be able to touch it. No one. No matter what."
A third match between the pair is in the works and Fury was recently asked about the possibility of it taking place on Christmas Day.
But the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' has rubbished the idea of facing Wilder on such a religious day.
"It was in a couple of papers, but Christmas is a very religious time for me and I have kids," he explained.
He added: "There is plenty of other time for boxing. I would fight as late as December 20 but not Christmas Day - it would probably end in my divorce, too."
"Career and sport aside, family comes first and there are 364 other days a year to go and make money and I don't need it that much."
