Ahead of their February 22 showdown, Tyson Fury has referred to his opponent, Deontay Wilder as someone that lacks substance and intellect.
The Briton and the American fought to a draw last December in a bout, and a rematch is set for February.
Fury says he is confident of getting greater support in Wilder’s America, as the undefeated WBC world heavyweight champion only ‘pretends to have a personality.’
“He screams ‘bomb squad’ a lot and pretends to have a personality, but really he doesn’t and there is no depth to him,” said the 31-year-old.
“I have already got more American fans than Wilder. For whatever reason, Wilder is not popular in America and people don’t like him.
“He has got no substance. He is a loud mouth.
“Behind that there is no intellect. He comes out with random things that don’t make sense. I am a trash talker, but sometimes I struggle to put together what he is talking about.”
Meanwhile, 34-year-old Wilder faces 40-year-old Cuban Luis Ortiz on November 23 in his 10th defence of the WBC title.
