Wilder: Tyson Fury is a Sorry Excuse For a Heavyweight!

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

AMERICAN knockout king Deontay Wilder has labelled Britain's Tyson Fury "the clown of heavyweight boxing".

Wilder, 28, has knocked out all of his 30 opponents to date and wants a showdown with the winner of Fury and Dereck Chisora.

The British pair are set for a summer showdown in a WBO title eliminator.

Wilder blasted loud-mouth Fury and claimed the Manchester-born heavyweight has yet to prove he is the world-class fighter he claims to be.

The American said: "You know, he's a sorry excuse for a heavyweight, man,  all he wants to do is talk, talk, talk.

"I mean, he thinks that if he talks a good game that will bring excitement to people and stuff like that.

"But people don't want to see a person just talk, talk, talk, they also want to see some action too.

"If you're not showing the action behind it, people are not going to believe you anymore.

"They're just going to assume that you're just a clown of the sport.

"He's just a big mascot and people now they're not laughing with him, they're laughing at him."

Wilder, who takes on Malik Scott this weekend in America, wants the chance to silence Fury later this year.

He added: "To get a fight against Fury or Chisora would be excellent.

"It's a tough one to choose who will win between those two though."

Wilder vs. Scott is live on BoxNation (Sky Ch.437/490HD and Virgin Ch.546) this Sunday at 2am.

Whoever lands first puts the other man to sleep. I'd love for this bout to happen.

I hate when people use the better competition reasoning for a w or l. Both have shown that they are elite level competition and as far as experience goes, wilder is an Olympic medalist and has sparred with a klitschko.…

[QUOTE=Ryn0;14326304]GGG resume as poor as it is is still miles ahead of Wilders.[/QUOTE] GGG's older, been a pro longer, and had a more extensive amateur career. Wilder was late to the sport. No excuses. But he needed an apprenticeship far…

[QUOTE=hitking;14325425]Nope, but that's not my point. Both of their resumes are jokes. But folks let it slide when it comes to GGG and sh1t on Wilder. Even though GGG is older and had a more extensive amateur resume. Wilder needs…

It looks to me like Wilder is finally ready to step up and see where he stands..... This is just talk, trying to create some potential interest.... I'm guessing he thinks Fury will win and is trying to set the…
