Tyson Fury Breaks His Silence On Deontay Wilder’s Devastating KO Victory Over Luis Ortiz
Tyson Fury has laughed at Deontay Wilder's ferocious punching power after his sensational knockout victory over Luis Ortiz on Saturday.
The 34-year-old WBC champ was outboxed by Cuban star Ortiz in their rematch before he connected with a devastating right hand in the seventh round.
And Fury, who fought Wilder in 2018 to a controversial draw, has now taken to Twitter to fire off a shot at his fierce rival.
He tweeted out to his 1.3m followers: "Wilder has nothing more than a punchers [sic] chance vs me, I'm gonna school even more than the first fight. #BUMCITY."
Fury and Wilder initially clashed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and many fight fans felt that the Brit superstar should have won on points.
And the 31-year-old 'Gypsy King' survived an incredible 12th-round knockdown at the hands of the WBC champ in their blockbuster bout.
Wilder, who successfully defended his championship for the tenth time on Saturday, confirmed after the Ortiz fight that his rematch with Fury would take place in February.
"We have Tyson Fury the rematch next," the 'Bronze Bomber' said.
"It's set to be done in February, so we will see how that goes and then after that I am looking for a unification bout.

"The heavyweight division is too small to have so many belts lingering around, there should be one champion and I think I am the perfect man for that job."
Fury's trainer, Ben Davison, was in attendance for the WBC kingpin's victory at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.
But Davison insisted that Fury wouldn't fall victim to the same brutal KO defeat as Ortiz.
"Obviously, it's something you have to try to negate," he told Sky Sports.
"How do you do it? Definitely not how Ortiz just did.
"Fair play, he had a good go but he got complacent and walked straight into distance. That's a recipe for disaster.
"Mentally, Tyson is the strongest fighter I've seen in history. Ortiz is a fantastic fighter, but he's not Tyson Fury.
"Wilder was a different man this week to when he fought Tyson. Tyson got under his skin."
According to Fury, the rematch is scheduled to take place on 22nd February in Las Vegas.
