Deontay Wilder Responds To Tyson Fury's Offer To Help Him

Deontay Wilder has turned down Tyson Fury's offer to help him.

After seeing Wilder make a series of shock claims in relation to their two WBC world heavyweight title fights, Fury expressed concern over the Bronze Bomber's mental health.


Wilder had accused Fury of cheating by having his gloves tampered with and using an illegal object that dented his head, as well as making an astonishing claim that his trainer Mark Breland, the man who threw the towel in, "spiked" his water and was "part of the plot".

Fury, who has been vocal about his own mental health problems and how he rose from the ruins, believes Wilder is struggling to accept his first ever professional defeat at the hands of the Gypsy King earlier this year.

Speaking on This Morning yesterday, Fury said: "At the moment I think Deontay Wilder has bigger issues to deal with than boxing.

"I am quite worried for his health and well being.

"I know he won't have wanted to lose, after being an undefeated champion for so long, but there comes a time when you just have to accept it and move on.

"Wilder does not seem able to do that, he is holding on to malice feelings and making excuses and I am concerned for his mental well being, because some of his statements are ludicrous.

"But I am only a phone call away, if I can help him then I will because it seems this fight has really affected his well being."

Wilder, however, is not keen to chat with the man who took his belt and simply wants to fight him for a third time.

"Hey Tyson Fury, don't worry about me I am fine, blessed.

"The only thing I want from you is for you to honour your agreement and fight me. I gave you two shots when I didn't have to and it changed your life. Now it is time for you to be a man and give me my shot as you agreed to."

Wilder and his team still feel they are obligated to a trilogy bout but Fury's side are moving forward ahead of a mooted fight with Agit Kabayel at the Royal Albert Hall on December 5.
