Tommy Fury Speaks to PR Press Box About Deontay Wilder
“It’s stupid, I had a lot of respect for Wilder, I thought he was a good champion, but he just met his match. All this stuff that he’s coming out with now, I can’t get my head around it.
“As a champion and as a role model, you should admit you’ve been beaten twice by a better man and brush yourself off on and come again. All of these excuses he’s coming up with are bad to hear. He’s not a good sportsman. Basically just coming up with anything he can think of.
“He’s saying his team has spiked his water and all sorts of stuff, ludicrous stuff that you don’t say as a sportsman. As an athlete, you just kind of take on the chin and get on with it. I think Wilder’s in a really low, low state because he had a big ego. Everyone around him had big egos. I think to lose in the way he did, getting brutally battered for seven rounds, it’s hard to swallow. I don’t think he can swallow it. That’s the problem here. Tyson’s a much better fighter than him. Don’t be making excuses for yourself and tarnishing your legacy, because that’s all he’s doing.”
