Tyson Fury also touched upon the trilogy, which Wilder has repeatedly been vocal about for avenging his defeat. However, Fury pointed out the several postponements of the rematch and stated that he will not keep on waiting for it to happen.

“The original date was July 18,” the heavyweight champion continued, “That didn’t happen because he (Wilder) had an injury so it got put back three months to October, then that didn’t happen because they were trying to get a venue.”

“And then they had three dates in December – 5th, 12th, 19th – which I agreed to all them and obviously that didn’t’ happen,”

“So, I’m not going to wait around forever,” the 32-year-old concluded.
