Deontay Wilder says he wants to 'decapitate and disfigure' Tyson Fury so 'his mother wouldn't know who he was'
DEONTAY WILDER has sent a chilling warning to Tyson Fury by claiming he wants to 'decapitate and disfigure' him in their trilogy fight this summer.
The Bronze Bomber will step into the ring with The Gypsy King for the third time in Las Vegas on July 24 as he bids to reclaim his WBC title.
And while their rematch 16 months ago was a one-sided beatdown in favour of Fury, Wilder remains supremely confident he will exact revenge on the Brit this time around.
Speaking to 78SPORTSTV, he said: "My mentality is – you've been contemplating about hurting a person so bad, to the point you wanna disfigure him so his mother wouldn't even know who he was.
"You wanna decapitate him in every way, like premeditated stuff."
Wilder won his arbitration case to secure a third fight with the Brit, a decision which essentially blocked the potential for an undisputed clash between Fury and Anthony Joshua.
Since their rematch in early 2020, Wilder has changed trainers and teamed up with former heavyweight boxer Malik Scott.
Several training videos have been released of the pair working together, but Scott has now come out and publicly stated his confidence in Wilder's ability.
"Muhammad Ali is one of my greatest fighters of all time," he said. "He very was magical in the ring, but it was the things he beat outside the ring that truly got my attention.
"Deontay Wilder is the closest thing to that in this time."

Meanwhile, Fury's son Prince gave his prediction for his dad's third fight against Wilder earlier this week.
When asked by Tyson on his Instagram what he thought was going to happen, Prince replied: "You're gonna knock his teeth out.
"Knockout, first round… Bam! Right hand."
Fury and Joshua remain hopeful an undisputed fight could still take place at the end of 2021.
But in order for that to happen, Fury will have to defeat Wilder and Joshua will have to come through WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk.
