Tyson Fury Believes That Deontay Wilder Has ‘Changed His Number Or Blocked Him’

Tyson Fury Believes That Deontay Wilder Has ‘Changed His Number Or Blocked Him’

Tyson Fury hilariously claimed that he's no longer in touch with Deontay Wilder over the phone as he doesn't respond to his texts.

The Brit superstar, 31, traded blows with the WBC champ in December last year and secured a draw -- despite many fight fans believing that he should have won the fight on points.

But when Steve Bunce said to Fury that the 'Bronze Bomber' doesn't return his texts anymore, he responded: "I think he's changed his number, you know.

"Or he might have blocked me."

Fury, who is scheduled to have his rematch with Wilder on 22nd February in Las Vegas, recently hit the headlines for his phone antics.

Anthony Joshua revealed that Fury would randomly call him up and tell him that he would 'knock him out.'

When he was asked about his conversations with 'AJ,' Fury laughed and said: "Well, I call him and sometimes I say, 'What's happening 'AJ?' How are you, mush?'

"That's usually what I say.

"Then we have a little bit of back and forth and I tell him I'm going to knock him out.

"And then he tells me I'm going to knock you out.

"And I said, 'After your last performance, mush, you need a lot of improvement to knock me out -- I tell ya that [laughs]!'

"He has a little laugh and we have a little laugh. It's a bit of banter, innit.

"But... just think about it: you've got all these heavyweight champions and all of these famous sports peoples in your phone, you have a couple of beers -- what you gonna do [laughs]?

"We're only human after all, aren't we?"

Fury dismissed the idea that any of the calls were 'hostile' and reiterated that it was a "bit of banter with the lads."

He added: "I call Dillian Whyte, I call Wayne Rooney, I call Anthony Joshua [laughs]. I call them all."

The 'Gypsy King' also revealed during the same interview that he plans to have a trilogy of fights with Wilder before aiming for a unification bout in 2020.

Will Fury beat Wilder in the rematch?

Let us know in the comments.
