Tyson Fury Reacts To Potentially Fighting Deontay Wilder On Christmas Day
Fury and Wilder are set to fight for a third time this year with Australia rumoured as a potential location for their trilogy bout.
Boxing Day has been suggested as a possible date which would see the clash shown in America on December 25.
But the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' has rubbished the idea of facing 'The Bronze Bomber' 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.
"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."

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."

Speaking after striking a deal with Team Joshua, he said: "(Daniel Kinahan of MTK Global has) just informed me that the biggest fight in British boxing history has just been agreed. Two-fight deal, Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua next year.
"One problem, I've just got to smash Deontay Wilder's face right in in the next fight, then we go into the Joshua fight next year. So there we are, the 'Gypsy King' vs. AJ is on for next year, but there is a hurdle in the road called 'The Bronze Bomber,' aka the knockout king, and I will get onto him and knock him spark out."
