Deontay Wilder declared himself the A-side after insisting Tyson Fury only sold 3500 tickets for his clash with Otto Wallin last month.
Fury beat Wallin on points in las Vegas.
“Now we know who sold all the pay-per-views [for the first fight],” Wilder told reporters after a press conference. “This bro only sold 3,500 tickets. November 23rd will prove that even more.”
As Wilder announced he would fight Luis Ortiz on 23 November, he also confirmed he was moving to FOX.
“I beat Fury. The first four rounds are me easy, the fifth round is also,” he said. “The only way people move that narrative like that [is] because of the commentary, the commentaries of Showtime, Paulie Malignaggi, all of them, especially Paulie. I won the first four rounds easily.”
Fury and Wilder are set to clash in early 2020 in one of the biggest fights in recent years.
The two superstars produced a thrilling encounter in Los Angeles last December, clashing in an epic draw.
