Former world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder claims that during a press conference dedicated to his upcoming trilogy with Tyson Fury, he put on headphones and refused to talk to reporters because he no longer wants to waste time on empty conversations.
“For me, it’s just business. I didn’t come here to play games or fool around. When it comes to the fight, it’s strictly business for me, and I’m only focused on it. The people who support Fury aren’t even his fans. They’re my haters. And I let their champion run a circus and promote this fight.
I want to see if he can handle his part of the deal. I don’t think he’s capable of that. Fury needs me to entertain the audience, he wants to be my co-captain. He’s my accomplice. I’m Batman, and he’s Robin. Now I want to let him do his job, as we’ve been through this before.
I didn’t hear anything. I didn’t want to hear anything, because I had nothing to listen to there. I already have what I’m going to do in my head,” Deontay Wilder said.
