Tyson Fury Says Hes Not Even Thinking About Wilder Right Now

Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury is not looking ahead to a rematch with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder.

Last week, Wilder announced that a deal was reached for a rematch with Fury.

But both boxers have upcoming assignments before they get to that point.

Next Saturday, Fury makes his Las Vegas debut against Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

And Wilder will face Luis Ortiz in a rematch, likely on a date in September.

Should everything go as planned, Fury will have another fight in the fall.

The unbeaten “Gypsy King” is not even thinking about Wilder right now – especially with the contest being pegged for the first quarter of 2020.

“I can say anything. Look, he’s (Wilder) talking about a fight that’s a year away,” Fury told the Rich Eisen Show.

”Anything can happen; we’re not promised tomorrow so I’ll live for today. Because of the background that I’ve come from and what I’m suffering with — I can’t look past today because tomorrow I might be in a total depression again; so I only have to live for today and be happy for now, that’s how I get through it.

“Deontay Wilder is talking about fights that could happen in 2020. I have not even fought my fight on Saturday yet. I could get knocked out in that one. We never count chickens before they hatch.

“He (Wilder) has to to have to get past (Luis) Ortiz and I’m probably going to fight September or October.  I don’t know (against whom). I don’t get involved in it too much; when I’ve got a fight on the horizon I don’t look past that first initial fight.”
