'Wilder isn't man enough to face me anymore' - Fury

Tyson Fury says Deontay Wilder isn't man enough to face him anymore or speak to him after their epic draw in December.

The heavyweight was speaking to 5 Live Boxing's Mike Costello and Steve Bunce in Las Vegas.

Fury said: "I've been hurt 1,000 times but Wilder didn't hurt me once. He hit me in the back of the head, scrambled my senses and the last knockdown was a touch of sleep but didn't hurt me.

"He used to text me back and forth. I've text him five times and he hasn't replied once."

Britain's ex-world heavyweight champion Fury meets undefeated German Schwarz in Las Vegas at about 04:00 on Sunday.
