Tyson Fury will never fight Deontay Wilder again after the Bronze Bomber’s list of excuses for why he lost his WBC crown.
The two heavyweights fought to an engrossing draw in 2018 for Wilder’s WBC championship, before Fury stopped the American in February 2020 to capture the title.
“The Bronze Bomber” had a rematch clause, and invoked his desire to complete the trilogy almost immediately. But the one-sided nature of the fight hasn’t quelled a stream of excuses that have flowed ever since.
And Arum has revealed that Wilder’s behaviour has ruined any chance of earning redemption in a trilogy bout.
He told to Barbershop Conversations: “There’s no mediation. I mean, there has been over Christmas, and New Year, there was mediation.
“I don’t know, maybe the mediator will be able to solve the situation, but we got a real problem because Tyson Fury has said to me and the mediator, ‘Not today, not tomorrow, and not ever’ will he ever fight Wilder after what Wilder said to him.
“He [Fury] regards is not only as a slur against him but against the Gypsy nation.”
