Former world champion in for different categories Roy Jones Jr. addressed the comments Deontay Wilder made about Tyson Fury.
“The Bronze Bomber” lost the rematch with the Brit this last February and just days after the defeat he put the blame on his 20 kg ring entrance costume. After that Wilder disappeared from the public eye until last week when he made another crazy comment about the fight.
The American said he doesn’t see Fry as the WBC world heavyweight champion and that the third fight will be totally different. Ant that’s, of course, his own opinion and everybody is entitled to their own opinions.
But according to the Hall of Famer, Wilder should probably be not speaking this type of stuff.
“The guy beat you,” said Roy Jones Jr.
“You fought a seven-round fight and a 12-round fight, that’s 19 rounds and the guy probably won 14 or 15 of the 19 rounds, so how can you say he’s not a real champion? He beat you and took you out for your title, so how can you say he’s not a real champion? You can’t call him nothing but a real champion.”
The pair is set to clash for a third and final time later this year.
