The defeated WBC champion, Deotay Wilder, 34, has broken his silence, posting a 90-second video on social media. He is calling for a third clash with Tyson Fury:
‘Hello my people, my Bomb Squad army, my Bomb Squad nation. To all my loved ones around the world.
‘I just wanted to let you know I am here. Your King is here. And we ain’t going nowhere.
‘For the war has just begun. I will rise again. I am strong. I am a king. You can’t take my pride. I am a warrior. I am a King that will never give up. I am a King that will fight to the death.
‘And if anyone don’t understand that don’t understand what it is to go to war, don’t understand what it is to fight.
‘We will rise again, I will regain the title. I will be back. We will hold our heads up high.
‘Your King is in great spirit and we will rise like a phoenix from the ashes and regain the title.
‘I will see you in a few months as the war has just begun. all my love to all my people.’
