Wilder on Fury Ticket Sales: Now We Know I Sold The PPV!

WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder believes there is no doubt that he's the bigger name when compared to his division rival, Tyson Fury.

Wilder and Fury fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in December 2018, and a rematch is scheduled to take place in February of 2020.

Since then, Fury has gone on a conquest of America and fought twice in Las Vegas.

Last month, Fury won a bloody twelve round decision over Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena.

But Wilder rolled his eyes when it was revealed that Fury had only sold a bit over 3,500 tickets for the fight, with 3,898 complimentary tickets being issues.

"Now we know who sold all the pay-per-views [for the first fight]. This bro only sold 3,500 tickets. November 23rd will prove that even more," Wilder said.

Wilder is back in Las Vegas, at the MGM Grand, when he faces Luis Ortiz in a rematch on November 23rd.

Wilder also denied all talk that Fury was the rightful winner of their first bout. He felt the commentating team on Showtime, who handled the pay-per-view of the first round, was being too biased - especially former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi.

During the fight, Wilder scored two knockdowns - with Fury going down in the ninth and then again in the twelfth and final round.

"I beat Fury. The first four rounds is me easy, the fifth round is also. The only way people move that narrative like that [is] because of the commentary, the commentaries of Showtime, Paulie Malignaggi, all of them, especially Paulie. I won the first four rounds easily," Wilder said.
