Fury: I Just Want To Smash Wilder, He Has No Chance To Beat Me!

Tyson Fury has said that he has no interest in taking step-aside money to delay his rematch with Deontay Wilder, even if he was offered £50 million.

Wilder, the WBC heavyweight champion, had suggested Fury could step aside to allow the American to face Andy Ruiz Jr early next year for the undisputed world heavyweight title if Ruiz wins his rematch with Anthony Joshua for the WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF belts on December 7 in Saudi Arabia.

But Fury said he would not be interested in being paid a fee for not fighting Wilder.

“I have heard about him saying he wants to pay me some step-aside money but I’m not a cheap whore, I’m very expensive,” Fury said. “And I don’t really want to step aside from anything.

“I’m not interested in taking money to step aside. A few more pound coins in my pocket is not going to make me or break me.”

Fury got off the floor twice to draw with Wilder in Los Angeles last December. While not announced, both parties have apparently made an agreement for a return next February,

However both have fights before that. Fury faced Otto Wallin, of Sweden, in Las Vegas on Saturday September 14, while Wilder is due to have a rematch against Luis Ortiz in November.

“I just want to smash Wilder in the rematch,” Fury said. “I’m not interested in the money side of it, I just want to beat him and get what I deserve. The victory.

“Wilder doesn’t want to fight me. He couldn’t beat me when I’d had three years out the ring and he couldn’t beat me when he knocked me down twice. So he hasn’t got a chance of beating me now.”

Indeed Fury said that the prospect of all the world titles being on the line when he boxes Wilder does not bother him.

“I’m not interested in fighting him if he’s got 104 belts,” Fury said. “I only want to beat Deontay Wilder the person, not the man who is holding the belts.

“When you’ve won all the belts like I have, belts are fantastic, lovely things to have, to hold, to win. But it’s about more than a belt between me and Deontay Wilder, I want to beat him, I want to get what I deserve and that’s the victory.

“I’m not interested in step-aside money. I wouldn’t take £50million step-aside because it doesn’t mean that much to me, I only care about winning and victory.”

However, Fury says he is not frustrated about having to wait until next year to box Wilder, although he admits that he would rather be facing Wilder next weekend.

“There’s no frustration, Rome wasn’t built in a day,” Fury said. “Big fights take a lot of building, as we saw with Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather.

“I’m in Las Vegas training in the sunshine and I’m in fantastic shape. Taking it one day at a time.

“I wish it was Wilder this weekend. I’ve never thought anything apart from dream about Deontay Wilder in my sleep every single night.

Every time I wake up in the morning, the first thing I think about is Deontay Wilder. Every time I go to sleep at night, the last thing I think about is Deontay Wilder.

“I took Deontay Wilder straight after all the lay-off and I wasn’t bothered about him then and I’m not bothered about him today. I only want to fight him, I don’t care about building up, I’m ready to go this weekend.

“When you’re as good as I am in it doesn’t matter who your opponent is, they’re all there for the same thing and that’s to get their arses kicked.”

Fury has never "smashed" anyone.. Here he is just trying to convince himself and a few loyal followers that he's chasing the big fish.

He contradicts himself. He takes an ESPN deal and run aways from the rematch and now says that he won't take any money to delay the fight. Unless they already have a contract they can bypass him. Funny that now…

[QUOTE=Angeljuice;20048264]He and AJ made the Wilder name. Nobody had heard of him a couple of years ago (when he first became champion). Most Americans didn't even know who he was, so using his name seems fair enough.[/QUOTE] Wallin would be…

[QUOTE=REDEEMER;20046699]Using Wilder name to build his upcoming fight, can't blame him . Wallin isn't a name but will deliver a tough fight which will help Fury even more in a fight he already won with Wilder.[/QUOTE] He and AJ made…
