Deontay Wilder has sensationally hinted that he could RETIRE if he loses his trilogy fight against Tyson Fury.
And he has explosively revealed that he was been "weeding out snakes" from his circle that he believes contributed to his shattering loss to the Gypsy King.
The American suffered his first ever defeat as a pro when he was battered and bullied by Fury before being stopped in the seventh round of their rematch in February.
Despite the one-sided beating, the Bronze Bomber agreed to Part III and is confident this will happen before the year is out.
That fight was initially scheduled for July 25, but is expected to be delayed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
And in an interview with PBC Podcast, the 34-year-old stressed the importance of bouncing back.
He also revealed he has had to deal with "snakes" around him who were "jealous" of how his career had progressed.
