Former heavyweight boxing champ Deontay Wilder oddly put his knockdown on Tyson Fury on a list of his “coldest eliminations” when he first met three years ago, despite the fact that there has never been an eliminator like this. Wilder put Fury in round seven and twelve of their 2018 bout in Los Angeles hit the ground twice, but the “Gypsy King” bounced back on both occasions to score a draw by way of a split decision

The Brit prevailed when the pair rekindled their rivalry in February last year, putting in an extremely dominant performance to claim a seventh-round win after Wilder’s manager Mark Breland was eventually forced to close the towel The result was Fury won the WBC heavyweight championship and took a huge step towards a settlement battle with Anthony Joshua that is getting closer and closer to completion. Although Wilder failed to knock Fury out, he has claimed he actually did did, and even counted his two close calls among the best hits of his entire career. When asked to address his “coldest knockouts,” Wilder told ESNews, “Bermane Stiverne 2 I transformed there, I had an out of body experience, it was so crazy [Artur] Szpilka was someone else “And the two KOs with Fury, because I definitely fucked him up It was amazing but I didn’t get the credibility “

Wilder’s bizarre statement is the latest addition to a string of always far-fetched claims about his fights against Fury, the American previously suggested that fouling was the result of his loss last year after claiming his opponent’s corner was his Having added weights to gloves, he has also claimed that his water was spiked by a mutinous member of his coaching staff, suggesting that the costume he wore to the ring was too heavy and weighed him down so badly that he could no longer fight properly believed Wilder was able to fight a trilogy fight with Fury by virtue of a contract clause, but it seems like he will have to wait for the Manchester-based fighter to face Joshua first

The native Alabama-American claimed earlier this month he could join Joshua or Andy Ruiz Jr Asked if the pair had names on their radar, Wilder replied, “Yes, every fighter at the top that people haven’t seen me fight and who really wants to see me fight That’s what I want to fight “I can sit here all day and say names, that’s the easy part I’ll just go upstairs and when you go upstairs and it’s someone I didn’t fight against , I want to fight “I want to clean up the department, period”

Wilder’s loss to Fury twelve months ago marked the first of his professional career, having previously won 42 of his 43 fights, all but one of his wins by knockout, the only other flaw on his otherwise impressive record is the draw of his First meeting with Fury, it remains to be seen if Wilder will ever get a shot at the controversial British champion again, but he seems interested in fighting Joshua and winning at some point in the near future to prove his worth to the Watford-born fighter would be a formidable challenge for the ‘bronze bomber’, as both men can knock out devastating knockouts in the ring at any time
