Fury Warns Wilder: I Wouldn't Take $50 Million To Step Aside!

According to Tyson Fury, there is no amount of money that would make him step aside from a planned rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

Fury is back in the ring on Saturday night, at the T-Mobile Arena, against unbeaten prospect Otto Wallin. Fury is a massive favorite to win the fight.

And should Fury win, his next bout would take place in February, against Wilder. They initially fought back in December 2018, with the bout ending in a controversial twelve round split draw at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Wilder is heading to a rematch with Luis Ortiz, which is scheduled to land on a date in November. The first time around, he stopped Ortiz in ten rounds in March 2018.

In a recent interview, Wilder explained that he'd like to face the winner of the upcoming December rematch between Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua, who battle for the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world titles. Wilder believes Fury would be more than willing to step-aside.

But Fury denies that he would every consider the scenario of stepping aside.

 "I've heard about Wilder saying he wants to pay me some step-aside money [for Wilder to face the winner of Ruiz-Joshua 2] but I wouldn’t take $50 million to step aside because it doesn’t mean that much to me. I only care about winning and victor," Fury told Gareth Davies of The Telegraph.

"The truth is 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.

"I don't care if he’s got 104 belts. Belts are 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 the man himself."

I like Tyson but he's full of **** like Joshua. Both of those bums lie through their teeth all the time. Wilder scrambled furys brains and he took the easy way out to avoid an immediate rematch. We all know…
