    Tyson Fury says he’ll never fight Deontay Wilder again

    Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder III? Forget it.

    That’s the word from Fury’s co-promoter Bob Arum, who says that the heavyweight titleholder told him he’d never face Wilder again because of the comments he made following Fury’s knockout victory in February.

    The fighters’ representatives took part in mediation to resolve a dispute over a rematch clause in the contract – and are waiting for a ruling – but Arum said the decision might lead to nothing.

    “There was mediation,” Arum told Barbershop Conversations. “I don’t know, maybe the mediator will be able to solve the situation, but we got a real problem because Tyson Fury has said to me and the mediator, ‘Not today, not tomorrow, and not ever’ will he ever fight Wilder after what Wilder said to him.

    “[Fury] regards it not only as a slur against him but against the Gypsy nation.”

    Wilder, who was knocked out by Fury in the seventh round at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, accused Fury of tampering with his gloves. He also suggested that his drinking water might’ve been spiked, implicating his own trainer.

    Fury is now in negotiations to face Anthony Joshua in a heavyweight title-unification bout.
