Deontay Wilder returns to training and sends chilling message to rival Tyson Fury as ‘Gypsy King’ targets Anthony Joshua fight

Deontay Wilder has returned to training and sent a chilling message to bitter rival Tyson Fury.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ was unceremoniously beaten senseless by the Brit in February 2020 and has not fought since.

Despite a reported trilogy clause expiring at the end of the calendar year, Wilder has now called the ‘Gypsy King’ out once again.

Fury is set to face compatriot Anthony Joshua in July for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world, potentially in Saudi Arabia.

But the American wants to firmly remind the world he is still very much an active heavyweight and sent Fury a message on Instagram.

He wrote: “The action of harming someone because they have harmed oneself; Revenge.”

Wilder appears to be training with former foe Malik Scott, a 40-year-old American heavyweight who was knocked out by ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in 2014.

Wilder has spent plenty of time on the sidelines waiting for another opportunity to regain the WBC heavyweight championship, with YouTube boxing taking centre stage in the absence of truly world class fights.

And the 34-year-old weighed in on Jake Paul’s move into the world of professional boxing, insisting it was good for the sport.

Wilder told the WMNC Podcast: “I love this sport so much. Even though the risk comes with it, I love it to death.

“And if anyone that has an interest and has a creative idea or way to come in and shine light on it, then I’m all for it. Especially if it’s making money for them, it makes sense.

“If people want to watch it, enjoy boxing, you probably have gained boxing fans because of these different guys.”
