Deontay Wilder’s fiancee savagely calls out Tyson Fury for ‘fake’ COVID-19 diagnosis
The drama is heating up, folks. Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury were set to battle it out in the ring on July 24th, but the Brit was diagnosed with COVID-19. That’s pushed the fight back all the way to October 9th and Wilder’s fiancee, Telli Swift, is not happy about it.
“You’ve trained so hard, blood, sweat, and tears and then for someone to have COVID and Deontay Wilder has fought with torn biceps, broken fingers, burns on his arms, and he still fought,” Swift said, via TMZ.
“So, I just feel like with COVID and you have sixteen days until the fight, he should still be able to fight and make it happen. Personally, I don’t believe anything that he says. So, I don’t believe anything that he says, and that’s that.”
Yikes, Fury is not going to like that. Let’s be honest though, he’s not scared of Deontay Wilder. The two have already fought twice, with Fury winning the last bout in 2020 when he knocked out the Bronx Bomber.
This trilogy fight is sure to be a thrill but the fact that we have to wait another two and a half months to see it is certainly a shame. However, Tyson Fury must take care of his health to be in tip-top shape. He won’t be worrying about what Deontay Wilder and his girl are saying. It’s just noise.
