Tyson Fury dismisses Deontay Wilder's 'mind games'

Tyson Fury dismisses Deontay Wilder’s ‘mind games’ ahead of their trilogy bout as the Gypsy King says he ‘doesn’t really CARE what that big dosser does’

  • Tyson Fury is preparing for his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder on Saturday
  • Fury claims Wilder’s mind games won’t work in their final press conference 
  • Wilder remained silent after an opening speech at a previous press conference
  • Defeat to the Gypsy King is the sole loss on Wilder’s professional record 

Tyson Fury insists he is not affected by mind games ahead of his WBC heavyweight title defence against Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.

World champion Fury is preparing for a third meeting with his American rival having knocked him out in February 2020 after their first contest ended in a draw.

Wilder chose to remain silent at a previous press conference and Fury says he will not be unsettled by his opponent’s behaviour going into Saturday’s bout.

The Gypsy King says he doesn’t care what his opponents do as it is ‘none of his business’

‘I don’t care what they do. None of my business,’ Fury told Sky Sports.

‘I keep my own business to myself and I don’t really care what that big dosser does, nothing.

‘I don’t care what he does. If he talks or he doesn’t, it doesn’t make any difference to me.

‘Mind games don’t work with me anyway.’ 

The Gypsy King destroyed his American rival 20 months ago and wants to emulate that feat

The 33-year-old Briton is the overwhelming favourite to retain his title as he bids to extend his undefeated streak to 32 fights.

‘I don’t think it matters, what he does, because it’s not about him, it’s about me, what I do,’ Fury said.

‘It wouldn’t matter if he ran around the ring in a circle, if he comes forward throwing bombs.

‘It doesn’t make any difference. When we’re in there, I’ll adjust to whatever it is on the night and what he’s going to do.

‘Winning is winning, an inch or a mile – I’ll take a knockout or I’ll take a points victory.

‘It doesn’t matter, as long as you get the win, you move on to the next one.’

 Defeat to Fury is the sole loss on Wilder’s professional record.

 Wilder refused to utter a word after a brief opening speech at a previous press conference

The 35-year-old was outclassed by the Gypsy King over seven rounds in Las Vegas when they met 20 months ago, suffering two knockdowns before his trainer, Mark Breland, threw in the towel to end the Bronze Bomber’s misery. 

But ahead of the trilogy bout this weekend, Wilder has insisted that he was not knocked out by Fury during their grudge rematch in February 2020, claiming that his ‘weak’ former trainer was to blame for the defeat.

He played the blame game as he revealed that he was ‘glad’ he lost as it showed fans that he is a ‘warrior’ and only suffered defeat due to Breland, who he described as a ‘weak individual’.
