Tyson Fury’s dad John says Deontay Wilder needs a ‘punch in the mouth’ and tells dethroned champ to ‘keep twerking’

JOHN FURY has ripped into dethroned former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

The 56-year-old watched his son Tyson annihilate the Bronze Bomber in February last year.

But the pair have had to listen to Wilder's excuses for the last 13 months, as he chased a trilogy bout with the Gypsy King.

Speaking to iFL TV, however, the elder Fury had some harsh words for the American.

He said: "What you've got to do Deontay Wilder is man up. Grow a pair of nuts son, and understand when you've been beat to death and learn from it."

"He's made an absolute a*** of his mouth, everyone in boxing is laughing at him. Everybody in the world is laughing at him.

"What he wants is a punch in the mouth properly, you know, kicking up and down United States like a football.

"Apart from that and his baby ways, keep twerking you're better doing that pal."

And Fury dismissed Wilder's determination for a rematch and willingness to die in the ring as 'bulls***'.

He continued: "What does he want?


"Does he want to die in there the idiot? They say they do, they don't. They say they want to die in the ring, they want to go out on their shield - bulls***.

"You want to die for a boxing match you idiot when you've got a family?"

And in response to Wilder calling trainer Mark Breland 'ungrateful', Fury responded: "Terrible.

"Disgusting. Mark Breland has got a job with us any time he wants - he's only got to ring the phone.

You wouldn't have come out with that bulls*** then would you? Craphead

"I'm sure there's a place here for Mark Breland. Great champion, great trainer, great brain - saved his life. He shouldn't have done really, he should have let Tyson kill him altogether.

"You wouldn't have come out with that bulls*** then would you? Craphead."

Finally free of the potential Wilder trilogy, Tyson finally appears set to face Anthony Joshua in June, with promoters Eddie Hearn, Bob Arum and Frank Warren still locked in talks.

Anthony Joshua all but confirms Tyson Fury undisputed fight is ON and should take place in June ‘for the fans’
