Tyson Fury Says He Wouldn't 'Step Aside' For Deontay Wilder Even If He Was Offered '$50m'

Tyson Fury Says He Wouldn't 'Step Aside' For Deontay Wilder Even If He Was Offered '$50m'

Tyson Fury has refused to 'step to one side' if Deontay Wilder had a clear path to a unification bout -- even if he was offered an eye-watering $50m.

The WBC champ, 33, stunned boxing fans by suggesting Fury would have to postpone their hotly anticipated rematch if he could challenge Anthony Joshua or Andy Ruiz Jr for the undisputed crown.

But Fury has dismissed the idea of stepping aside and said he wouldn't even take a whopping pay package to turn down a second clash with Wilder.

"I've heard about Wilder saying he wants to pay me some step-aside money [for Wilder to face the winner of Ruiz-Joshua 2] but I wouldn't take $50 million to step aside because it doesn't mean that much to me. I only care about winning and victor," the 31-year-old Brit superstar told the Daily Telegraph.

"The truth is Wilder doesn't want to fight me. He couldn't beat me when I'd had three years out the ring and he couldn't beat me when he knocked me down twice.

"So he hasn't got a chance of beating me now.

"I don't care if he's got 104 belts. Belts are lovely things to have, to hold, to win.
