Teofimo Lopez, the recently minted unified lightweight world champion, has slammed Deontay Wilder over his latest outburst accusing Tyson Fury of cheating in their two fights.
Lopez called out Wilder over his latest tirade in colourful terms as he suggested the Bronze Bomber didn’t have much to do at the moment, leading to his most recent accusations against Fury.
‘I think Wilder has had too much time on his hands. He needs to focus on his own damn self, go back to the gym, get ready for a fight,’ Lopez told SiriusXM.
‘Stop talking about a dent in your head. You’re a grown-a** man, stop being a b****.’

Lopez masterminded a stunning upset last month over Vasyl Lomachenko to claim the WBA, WBO and WBC Franchise titles. He has held the IBF title since 2019.
The 23-year-old American lightweight’s comments refer to Wilder’s sensational video posted last month, in which he openly claims that Fury put ‘something the size and shape of an egg-weight’ in his gloves, which left a dent in his head.
Wilder went on to rage that Ricky Hatton, in Fury’s corner for the first fight, tampered with the Gypsy King’s gloves to remove padding from around the fists. He also branded the match referee a ‘c***-in-a-bucket’ and decried his own trainer, Mark Breland, as ‘disloyal’ for throwing in the towel.
Fury took Wilder’s WBC heavyweight title in a blockbuster fight in February, following a controversial draw between them in their first bout four months prior.

The back and forth has continued over Wilder’s claim to a second rematch, with the Fury camp saying the American’s claim to a fight on December 19 had expired. Wilder labelled Fury a ‘coward a** b****’ for taking another fight in his homecoming bout on December 5.
The Gypsy King himself dismissed Wilder’s rant as ‘bulls***’.
As though raging after Fury was not enough, Wilder has also been in a vicious spat with Anthony Joshua.
The unified heavyweight champion said Wilder ‘dragged my name through the mud’ by accusing him of ducking a fight, only to then reveal that he chose to fight Fury despite the Joshua camp offering him more money.
