Tyson Fury, who fought Wilder to a controversial draw last December, complimented Wilder’s power this weekend, and while he of course made note that he felt he’d won their fight — which many people agree with, for the record — he called Wilder “the second-baddest man on the planet” and “the most fearsome, most destructive puncher in the heavyweight division.”

But because Fury (27-0-1, 19 KO) usually shifts in tone three times per single interview, it shouldn’t be any surprise that he decided to take a different a different approach when caught in New York by TMZ.

Though he did again say that Wilder’s KO of Breazeale was great and highlight reel stuff, he very, very quickly changed that tone.

“Wilder is a bum. He’s got a puncher’s chance, that’s it,” Fury said. “Like I said, Wilder is a massive dosser, and he works for me. That’s all Wilder is. He’s a big, bum dosser, bum city, hashtag anytime, any place, anywhere. When we fight again, I promise him he’ll be looking at the stars.”

The WBC ordered a rematch between Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KO) and Fury earlier this year, but Fury decided to sign with Top Rank and fight Tom Schwarz instead in June, which is what led to the WBC’s Wilder-Breazeale order.

“Deontay Wilder, go suck my nuts,” Fury added. “You wanna do anything about it, bitch, come find me.”

Asked about Wilder’s power, Fury said, “It ain’t so bad. I got up, didn’t I?”

So that’s your Tyson Fury update. It’s about his nuts and what Deontay Wilder can do with them.
