Deontay Wilder Vs Tyson Fury: The Tweets That Started Their Intense Rivalry Have Resurfaced

Deontay Wilder initially called out fierce rival Tyson Fury back in 2012 after claiming that 'nobody wanted to fight him.'

The 34-year-old WBC champ will trade blow with Brit superstar Fury on Saturday in their eagerly-awaited rematch.

And BT Sport has dropped a new promo that documents the heated rivalry between the pair.

Wilder sent out two tweets days apart as he called out Fury first before asking him to 'sign up to Twitter' after he snubbed him.

The 'Bronze Bomber' tweeted: "Okay world since no one wants2fight me willingly I will start calling you out personally starting w/u @Tyson_Fury fans who else? Call'em Out.

"Somebody tell @tyson_fury 2get a twitter acct. Apparently he ain't gt one w/ all the ring I gave him. Either he ignoring me or no one's home."

Fury criticised Wilder in a tweet after the WBC kingpin called him out, though the 31-year-old Brit didn't tag him in his December 2012 tweet.

Following Wilder's victory over Kelvin Price, the 'Gypsy King' tweeted: "Just watched wilder fight! Not impressed at all he wouldn't beat Kevin. Johnson! Very raw and open to big shots! Long way to go! Big punch d [sic]."

It wouldn't be until 2013 when Fury and Wilder started to trade verbal blows on Twitter.

Former unified champ Fury slammed Wilder and argued that he didn't deserve a title shot against him.

Fury and Wilder engaged in a heated press conference when the two heavyweight titans took to the stage on Wednesday.

And footage has since emerged that reveals every word the pair exchanged during their face-off in Las Vegas.
