Tyson Fury believes Deontay Wilder should stop being ‘jealous’ of him and instead focus on his upcoming fight with Luis Ortiz.
The Gypsy King has signed the huge deal to face the Monster among Men- Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel on October 31.
Wilder has expressed a fear that Fury will use his WWE venture as an excuse to avoid rematch.
When asked for his response to this, Fury told talkSPORT.com’s Alex McCarthy: “How do you respond to that? Agree, maybe? Would that be the most controversial way of answering that question? To agree with what he said? Well, I’ll agree with what Deontay Wilder said then. Everything he said I agree with.
“Do you know what it is though? I don’t see why people should be concerned with what my private business is and what I’m earning for fights or whatever. It’s got nothing to do with anyone but me, so if I earn £10 or I earn £10million, it’s got nothing to do with anybody else at all.
“Especially a rival boxer. What does it matter to him if I earn £10? It’s not his money, is it? So he shouldn’t be concerned. And as for all the fact that I’m gonna get an injury or whatever, he needs to concentrate on his own fight with Luis Ortiz and stop worrying about what I’m doing, stop being jealous of me.”
Wilder will face Cuban Luis Ortiz. The Bronze Bomber beat the 40-year-old in March 2018 and the two are set to face off again at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 9.
