Deontay Wilder Fires Back At Tyson Fury Over Step Aside Comments

Deontay Wilder Fires Back At Tyson Fury Over Step Aside Comments

Deontay Wilder would rather "slap" Tyson Fury than pay him a load of money to step aside from their contracted rematch.

Though Wilder is hellbent on running it back with Fury following their controversial title fight last year.

"If he want it, he got it, I ain't going to fight with him, we ain't giving you no f**king money," he told Blue Blood Sports.

"We ain't giving you s**t, I'll slap you before giving you any money.

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' had claimed it'd cost Wilder to make him step aside.

"[Stepping aside] depends how much they want to pay me because I ain't stepping aside. That's not quite how it works and it's very costly work," he said.

A second meeting in February 2020, though, is on the cards should Wilder beat Luis Ortiz in their rematch. The undefeated fighter will defend his WBC heavyweight belt against the Cuban challenger on November 23 in Las Vegas.

And he insists Ortiz, not Fury, provided him with his "toughest fight to date".

"When I fought Ortiz, not only did he have the pedigree, but also he had the classification of being the boogeyman of the division," he explained.

"I agree with those who say that Luis Ortiz was my toughest fight to date. No one wanted to fight him and they still don't. In the rematch there's more confidence and more motivation to do what I have to do."
