Schaefer To Fury: Why Make Wilder Jokes? Just Fight Him!

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer was not amused by Tyson Fury's recent social network rant on Deontay Wilder (28-0, 28 KOs). Fury (21-0, 15KOs) poked fun at Wilder's first round stoppage of Audley Harrison from last Saturday night in Sheffield. 

"Long way to go, boy, windmilling like a bitch and knocking out an old man. Great job! " - Fury wrote.

After the technical knockout of Audley, both Wilder and Schaefer called for a fight with Fury, but the Irish boxer was not impressed with the victory.

"When I was there at the fights in Sheffield, I said at the post-fight press conference that Deontay is ready for a Tyson Fury or a David Price. I saw Fury was making some fun about Deontay, about the way he finished Audley Harrison. If he wants to make fun of Deonaty, then why don't he fight him? Don't hide behind your promoter. I did reach out to his promoter and they said he supposedly has all of these other options," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com.

According to Fury's promoter Mick Hennessey, they are looking at a fight with undefeated Kubat Pulev, which the IBF has ordered as a final eliminator. However, Schaefer is ready to offer Fury more money to step in the ring with Wilder.

"How much is he going to make in that fight? If he wants to make some money, then he can fight Deontay. But it's okay, there plenty of other guys out there for Deontay. I understand. If I was Mick Hennessey...this is like his last guy standing and if I was him I wouldn't want to put my guy in with Deontay Wilder either," Schaefer said.

Wilder has Wlad co-signing him, calling him one of the best sparring partners he's ever had. And even though it was sparring, Wilder still taps Fury's arse......

[QUOTE=yoz;13320449]IMO, they're both at about the same level. Fury has a decent jab, and height and reach advantages; but poor footwork, guard and chin cancel these out. Wilder has a booming right hand; but, again, his footwork isn't great, he…
