Wilder open to fighting either Fury or Chisora this year.
American heavyweight star Deontay Wilder has labelled British rival Tyson Fury a “sorry excuse for a heavyweight” as the war of words continue between the pair.
The 28-year-old takes on Malik Scott this weekend looking to improve on his 30-0 record, with all his previous wins coming by way of knockout.
However, with the war of words starting last year, the American has continued it in the build-up to his next fight as he arguably angles to fight in the UK again later this year.
With Fury set to face Dereck Chisora, Wilder is lining up a possible meeting with the winner for a WBO title eliminator, but he clearly doesn’t hold his rival Fury in high regard.
“You know, he’s a sorry excuse for a heavyweight man, all he wants to do is talk, talk, talk,” he said, according to Boxing Scene.
“I mean he thinks if he talks a good game that will bring excitement to people and stuff like that. But people don’t want to see a person just talk, talk, talk, they also want to see some action too.
“They’re just going to assume that you’re just a clown of the sport,” he added.
Wilder couldn’t decide on a possible victor as the two British stars line up a rematch with Fury winning their previous contest, but he is confident of his chances against either man if they were to meet in the future.
The American powerhouse insists that he is the man to reignite the heavyweight division as he looks to take on more high-profile opponents, but with a group of marketable names in Britain he is understandably looking to fight across the pond in the near future.
