Deontay Wilder requires a rematch with Tyson Fury, accusing the rival of dishonest within the final combat
Deontay Wilder called for a rematch with Tyson Fury, urging the WBC champion to uphold his approval for a blockbuster trilogy showdown.
A third fight between Wilder and Fury was touted after the American lost the WBC title in a rematch in February at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas after a draw in the first fight in 2018.
Wilder (41-1-1) has the right to a third fight against British star Fury (30-0-1) but while December 19th has been suggested as a possible date, nothing has been finalized amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Fury announced in October that he had ended his interest in another rematch, while Wilder's co-manager claimed his fighter no longer had a contractual clause on the fight, which would allow the former to face Anthony Joshua instead.
A deal for two 2021 bouts between Fury and Joshua, who recaptured the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight world titles by beating Andy Ruiz Jr. last December, was agreed in principle in June.
Wilder called Fury on social media on Saturday and wrote on Twitter, "Fury Be A Man. @Tyson_Fury, it's time for you to be a man and keep your deal. What are these cops – when you're fighting Carlos Takam, instead of against me? " you must be kidding me …
"When that fight was a draw, I told you I was going to give you a rematch. You know I was offered more money to fight Joshua than I could fight you. As a man of my word, I have you how i fought said i would …
"There was a rematch clause in the rematch agreement. Now it's time for you to be a man and keep your word instead of trying to get out of our agreement. Fearful people led by a scary man will break his contract , You coward Azz b -! "
Fury executed a seven-round demolition via TKO against Wilder, who suffered his first loss.
In the accompanying video, Wilder added, "I saw Ricky Hatton pull down your gloves in the first fight to put your fists in the wrong position. You tried the same method the second time, but this time you got meat scratched my ears causing my ears to bleed.
"There's no way a brand new 10-ounce glove will flex, hold a smeared shape, or have a lot of room. I firmly believe you are sticking something hard into your glove. Something the size and shape of an egg weight.
"It's why the side of my face swelled in the shape of the egg weight and made a dent on my face as well.
"But in the middle of it all, you still couldn't keep this king down. You should have killed me. In the end, it took a crap-in-a-bucket referee and a disloyal trainer (Mark Breland) to throw in the towel, just to stop me. "
