Deontay Wilder has claimed that Tyson Fury lied about having Covid 19 in July, which delayed their trilogy fight until October, and said the British boxer should 'burn in hell.'
Wilder and Fury have fought twice already for the heavyweight world title, with the pair sharing a draw in the first fight, before Fury easily won the second in February 2020.
That was meant to take place in July but it had to be delayed due to the WBC champion having Covid 19, being rescheduled for October 9th, but Wilder has claimed it was all lies.
"I'm just tired of the lies. That's all it is, lies," the former champion told 78SPORTSTV.
"That's what I believe. And a lot of other people do too – the whole world believes it's nothing but lies.
"And it really sickens me to hear that because so many people have died of Covid.
"People I know have had family members to die of it. To hear others using this as an excuse to get out of something is just horrible man.
"May they burn in hell for that. Especially for something like this. Because the dude said he had COVID, then the next minute you see him in so many different places. It's just ridiculous.
"He's been trying to run away from me since July of last year. He's paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to avoid me.
"They came up with so many excuses to try to avoid me. They contradict themselves so many different times and it's just ridiculous at this point.
"You need to put up or shut up."
There has been little love lost between the pair from the moment the first fight started, with both men believing they'd easily done enough to win, only for it to be a draw.
Wilder has far more to prove coming into the third fight, most boxing fans will be hoping Fury wins so there is no need for a fourth fight.
