Deontay Wilder Brutally Responds To Tyson Fury Fighting Otto Wallin

Deontay Wilder has brutally laid into Tyson Fury following reports that the former world heavyweight champion has agreed terms to fight Sweden's Otto Wallin.

Fury is set to compete in Las Vegas again following his stoppage win over German fighter Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand back in June.

His fight with the undefeated Wallin is set to take place on September 14.

However, it seems that current WBC heavyweight champion Wilder isn't impressed with the calibre of Fury's opponents.

Speaking to FightHype, the 33-year-old stated:

"He keeps pulling out all these night shift graveyard workers... Bulls*** at it's best.

"No Englishman's coming over here, saving America with Tom Schwarz and Otto whoever he is, talking about 'he's the best' with an invisible belt."

Wilder also said that he thinks Fury is 'irrelevant in America' following Fury's claims he brought the 'it factor' to their title showdown last December.

"First of all, Fury came with his last fight against Tom Schwarz, he went to Vegas, came out with this clown outfit on, (talking about) how he's going to save America and make America great again.

"There were only 5,000 fans in the audience but he swears up and down he was the 'it factor' to our fight, it's proof in the pudding that he's irrelevant in America."

Wilder retained his heavyweight title against Fury via a draw in December at the Staples Center with many observers believing Fury should have won the bout, despite Fury being knocked down in the ninth and 12th round.

Fury has claimed that a rematch between the duo is set to take place on February 22, reportedly in Las Vegas.


Speaking at a Q&A event in Yorkshire, Fury detailed per The Guardian,

"The rematch has been confirmed and signed (for) 22 February. It's on, the rematch," Fury stated.

"This time I am going to knock him the fuck out. This time I haven't been out the ring for three years ... I haven't been abusing too much alcohol."

Wilder clearly believes that Fury should be preparing better for their inevitable rematch.

His next bout is also due to be in September, against Cuban fighter Luis Ortiz.
