By Charles Brun: Deontay Wilder still dislikes Tyson Fury despite the two appearing friendly with one another last month when they embraced during the Tommy Fury vs. Jake Paul celebrity boxing match on February 26th in Saudi Arabia.

The former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) revealed in an interview today that he “can’t stand” Fury because he sees him as a “cheater.”

Wilder didn’t say what Fury did that he felt was cheating, but in the past, he’s talked about the rabbit punches that he hit him with in their second fight.

“There’s a place and a time for all things. Of course, I can’t stand that motherf***er. They know what’s up; he’s a cheater,” said Deontay Wilder to ESNEWS about Tyson Fury.

“I know a lot of things. People know a lot of things. A lot of top people know a lot of things. So a lot of top people can’t be fooled, bro, but when we’re in a place.

“Come on now. Why would you do that? This is a peaceful ground,” said Wilder when told that he wouldn’t want to attack Fury on the spot. ‘I don’t like you, but I’m coming here to let you know that I see you. Do you understand me? I know what you are, and you know what I am. We can coexist with each other. You stay over there, and I’ll stay over here, and that’s it.’

Wilder has talked about Fury’s floppy gloves, which appear to be slipping off his hand during their second fight.

Some fans believe the first fight should have been stopped in the twelfth round when Wilder knocked Fury unconscious, and the referee shockingly still gave him a count while he was seemingly out cold. It looked odd for Fury to be given a count while fast asleep.

That looked strange to some fans because normally when fighters are knocked cold, the referee immediately stops the contest. In the third fight, some people felt that Fury was given a slow count by the referee after he was knocked down in the fourth by Wilder.

“All this stuff he wants to talk about, nobody believes that. I’m an unpredictable person,” said Wilder. “Fury knew what I was going to do. I am crazy. There’s a time and place for everything. My whole career, I’ve been a realist.

“When I leave, it’s going to be a sad day for boxing; I’m telling you because one of the realists in the game left. It’s not about how much money you can make. It’s not about how good you proclaim to be.  It’s about what you do inside and outside the ring.

“It’s like music. It’s not what you hear. It’s what you feel,” said Wilder.
