Tyson Fury taunts ‘sucker’ Deontay Wilder while shadow boxing in living room

Tyson Fury took a swipe at Deontay Wilder from his own living room, labelling the WBC heavyweight champ a ‘sucker’ ahead of their rematch.

The heavyweight rivals are set to face off in 2020 for a second time after fighting just over a year ago.

The bout ended in a draw after Fury incredibly climbed off the canvas in the final round.

And they are set to do battle once again, with February 22 the scheduled date for their next scrap.

Fury, who is known as the ‘Gypsy King’ was keen to let the Bronze Bomber know that he was in good shape by throwing some jabs from his living room.

In a video posted on Fury’s Instagram, the former heavyweight champ can be seen dancing round the room while screaming into the camera.

Fury said: “I’m training here Wilder, you sucker!

“What you say about me boy, you can’t hurt what you can’t see. P***y!”

“You couldn’t finish me last time.”

There were fears over Fury’s fitness after the horror cut he suffered in his last fight against Otto Wallin in September.

His eye was slashed in two places by the Swede and Fury was rushed to hospital immediately after the fight.

Fury sustained a two-inch gash on the eyebrow and a slit on his eyelid -and needed a monstrous 47 stitches for it to heal.

The rematch with Wilder was put in serious doubt but after doctors looked at it, promoter Bob Arum said it has ‘completely healed.’
