After taking care of business in their last fight, Tyson Fury wanted to send a message to Deontay Wilder early on tonight. And by early on, we’re talking before the opening bell even rang.
As the two fighters were being introduced to the Vegas crowd prior to their highly anticipated third fight, the reigning champ could be seen calling Wilder a “bitch ass” from across the ring. You can read Fury’s lips in the video below:
This exchange of words was followed by a rather intense stare down between the two fighters as the ref went over the rules. If the pre-fight shenanigans are any indication, we could be in for quite the trilogy.
The first bout between these two ended in a split decision draw back in December 2018. Fury took the second battle in February 2020, via a seventh round TKO.
