Deontay Wilder has told Tyson Fury he should 'burn in Hell' after accusing him of faking his positive Covid-19 test.
The much-anticipated final instalment of the Wilder and Fury trilogy bout was scheduled to take place on July 24.
However, the fight was postponed after the Gypsy King tested positive for Covid-19 over the summer, which caused outrage from the Bronze Bomber.
Their bout has now been rescheduled for October 9 in Las Vegas, with Fury's WBC world heavyweight title up for grabs.
And with the fight date rapidly approaching, Wilder has taken another swing at Fury in a war of words.
"I'm just tired of the lies. That's all it is, lies," Wilder told 78SPORTSTV.
"That's what I believe. And a lot of other people do too – the whole world believes it's nothing but lies.
"And it really sickens me to hear that because so many people have died of COVID.
"People I know have had family members to die of it. To hear others using this as an excuse to get out of something is just horrible man."
Wilder is adamant that Fury faked the positive test, and he's convinced he will attempt to call off their October 9 bout too.
Do you think Deontay Wilder is telling the truth? Let us know in the comments section.
"May they burn in hell for that. Especially for something like this. Because the dude said he had COVID, then the next minute you see him in so many different places. It's just ridiculous," Wilder continued.
"He's been trying to run away from me since July of last year. He's paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to avoid me.
"They came up with so many excuses to try to avoid me. They contradict themselves so many different times and it's just ridiculous at this point.
"You need to put up or shut up."

Wilder and Fury went to a scorecard draw in their first bout after Wilder had dropped Fury in the 12th.
However, Fury delivered a boxing masterclass in their second bout as the Gypsy King caused Wilder's corner to throw the towel in.
Fury had hoped to move on to a unification bout with Anthony Joshua, but he was ordered to complete his trilogy saga with the Bronze Bomber.
There remain hopes that the unification bout can go ahead should Joshua overcome Oleksandr Usyk.
Fury, however, remains confident he can beat Wilder next month, having said: "What's going to happen is I'm going to run across the ring and knock the f*** out of Deontay Wilder. I'm going to plaster him.
"I'm going to be like a plasterer on the night, plastering walls. I'm going to splatter him in the ring. He's getting knocked out for sure, 100 per cent.
"It was an easy fight the second time, and it'll be an even easier time the third time. I'm knocking him out inside quick time."
Wilder will be looking to avenge the only blemish on his record.
However, he will have to beat a man that has never lost a professional bout.
