Wilder looked like he had a major chip on his shoulder with the way he gave Fury and the media the silent treatment during the press conference on Tuesday.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) says he wants to get his weight up to 300 lbs and then use his size to run over former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) like an 18-wheel truck.
Fury, 32, said he views Wilder as a “one-trick pony” with his right-hand power, and there’s nothing else to him that worries him. He wants to get in close and pound the living daylights out of Wilder on July 24th when they meet for their third clash on pay-per-view at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Wilder showed no emotion on his face while Fury giving him a scary prediction about what he’s going to do. But with the headphones that Wilder had on during the press conference, he might not have heard a word that Fury said.
Fury says the reason Wilder chose not to speak to the media is that he’s a “s*** house” and a “p***y” and doesn’t have any more excuses to give to explain away his loss last year.
Tyson wants to get up to 300-lbs
“He’s not good enough to do anything about it,” said Fury during Tuesday’s press conference about his intentions to reveal his game plan ahead of time. “Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony. He’s got one-punch power. We all know that, great.
“What I’m going to do to Deontay Wilder this time is, I’m going to run him over like I’m an 18-wheeler, and he’s a human being.
“I guarantee you. It does not go past where it went before because before, I only had five or six weeks of practicing what I’m going to do to him.
I’m building my weight up, and I’m trying to get up to 300 lbs for this fight because I’m looking for a big knockout,” said Fury.
There’s not enough time for Fury to bulk up to 300 lbs before July 24th, and it looks like he’s planning on coming in a little lighter than the 270+ that he weighed a year ago. If Fury comes into the fight in the 260s, that’ll be plenty for him to follow the same game plan as last year.
Fury says Wilder didn’t want to be there
“He didn’t want to be there,” said Fury about Wilder. “It was a mental thing that he was trying, and he needed someone to rescue him because he didn’t want to be there.
“Because he’s a s*** house,” said Fury when asked ‘Why Wilder didn’t want to answer any questions?’ No, what’s he going to say?
“I think he’s all out of excuses. Probably the best thing he did wasn’t to speak. Then no one could ask him any questions about why he could say. It’s probably a good idea [that Wilder didn’t speak].
“People say things when they’re under immense pressure and they unwell in a fragile stage. That’s what I saw of Deontay Wilder. We’re going to have a fight and do what we do.
“It’s crazy. He’s letting himself down. He’s letting the fans down, the people of America down, the American media.
“People come here to listen to what he’s got to say about the fight. You guys are doing a fantastic job, and all of you who came here today.
“I’ve done my end, and it’s up to him to do his bit. It’s up to him to do whatever he wants.
‘Because I’m a s*** house pu***, and I couldn’t take what the media was going to say,'” said Fury when asked what he was going to say if he pretended to be Wilder during the press conference.
It looked like Wilder wasn’t mentally ready to deal with all the questions that were asked of him by the media. So instead of making himself available, Wilder put on headphones and clammed up.
