DEONTAY WILDER has instructed Tyson Fury to ‘burn in hell’ after claiming the Brit used coronavirus as an ‘excuse’ to delay their trilogy fight.
The heavyweight rivals had been due to meet for the third time again in July, however an outbreak of Covid in Fury’s camp led to the fight being pushed again to October 9.
And whereas there may be now lower than one month till Wilder will get his shot at redemption, he continues to insist that The Gypsy King by no means had coronavirus in any respect.
Speaking to 78SPORTSTV, the American mentioned: “So many have died of COVID.
“To hear others using this as an excuse is simply horrible. May they burn in hell for that.
“They contradict themselves so many times, it’s just ridiculous at this point.”
Last week, Wilder accused Fury of suspending their trilogy bout as a result of he was overwhelmed up in sparring by somebody from his camp.
He instructed the PBC Podcast: “They’re making an attempt to run away from it, I’m working to it. I do not consider he had Covid.

“I know he wasn’t doing well in camp. The young guys were piecing him up.
“I had a young guy from my camp who was piecing him up.”
The pair fought to a controversial draw again in December 2018 in Los Angeles, a conflict many felt Fury gained after he climbed off the canvas in a dramatic twelfth spherical.
They then went their separate methods with two fights apiece earlier than getting again into the ring with each other 14 months later in Las Vegas.
And this time Fury was ready to decisively rip the belt away from Wilder as he dominated the American, finally stopping him in the seventh spherical.
A trilogy fight was due to happen later in 2020 however the coronavirus pandemic stopped it from occurring.
Fury then seemed to bypass Wilder and arrange an undisputed conflict with unified champion Anthony Joshua.
But a courtroom ruling from an arbitrator dominated that the American was contractually entitled to a 3rd fight, a call which quashed the potential for a Fury-Joshua bout subsequent.
In order for the 2 Brits to meet for all of the belts, Fury now has to come by Wilder once more.
And AJ has to defend his belts towards former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk on the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25.
