Deontay Wilder has claimed that heavyweight rival Tyson Fury lied about having Covid push back their trilogy fight.
Fury was set to defend his title against Deontay Wilder on July 24, but the fight has now been postponed to October 9 after it was discovered there had been an outbreak within the group.
Speak with Sports post exclusively, Fury was keen to insist that he is “the last person to blame” for the situation, and was adamant that he kept his inner circle small for not favoring a “big entourage.”

Fury was fully expected to recover in time for the next grudge match, but he claimed he would have given Wilder an advantage by missing days of training.
And Wilder took to Instagram on Friday to express his feelings about the situation.
Yo bro, @malikkingscott (coach) says it’s not… Not the COVID-19 lie… They’re going to hell for that one!!! You can’t go faster on October 9,’ he wrote with a video in which he beats pads.’
Spotted at the Royal Exotic Cars Shop and a casino, Fury has been widely criticized for apparently failing to isolate. It is not known when he tested positive.

The third fight looked like it would never take place after Fury’s second win over Wilder, but a court ruled the American was contractually entitled to a chance at redemption.
That saw Fury’s undisputed Battle of Britain clash with Anthony Joshua smothered, despite the duo putting the contracts on paper.
Fury has since been described as ‘frustrated’ after his Covid diagnosis, with the boxer facing the prospect of nearly two years out of the ring
