Fury to Wilder’s claim: You can’t fake COVID with PCR test

Published

Tyson Fury clapped back at Deontay Wilder’s claim that he only made up about him
being positive to COVID-19 to delay their fight and that the Gypsy King is afraid of the
Bronze Boomer.
“I don’t care what Deontay Wilder says. Because, you know, if we wanna take this
publicly, then we have medical records by doctors here in Las Vegas who tested me,”
the WBC heavyweight champ said.
Wilder also added to his claim that Fury faking to have COVID is a disrespect to those
who are suffering with the deadly virus.
“I don’t think you can fake COVID with the PCR test, when they stick a big thing up your
nose.”
PCR test is the most accurate to determine whether you are positive or not on the virus.
Fury also revealed that this is the second time he tested positive.
\”You’ve either got it or you haven’t. You know, there would be no reason for me to want
COVID and get out of a Deontay Wilder fight. Why would I wanna chuck away 20, 30
million dollars to fight someone I’ve already knocked out quite comfortable? Why
wouldn’t I wanna take that, like a lottery win for free?
“I’ve had COVID twice, two times, I had it once back in like 2020 and once a couple of
months ago. The first time was a lot harder than the second time because I lost my
sense of smell and taste, and I felt weak and I felt terrible.”
However, despite the delay both heavyweight stars will finally renew their rivalry for the
third time come first week of October.

Fil-Brit Tiktoker Salt Papi puts the world on notice in latest boxing win

A new Pinoy boxer rising? This might be the case if we’re talking about the social media influencers-turned-boxers.

Tiktoker Salt Papi was the talk of the town after his vicious knockout against Youtube sensation Josh Brueckner, a taller, bigger guy.

The Filipino-British boxer landed a perfect right hand right to the face of Brueckner in just the first round.

They served as an undercard of KSI vs. Faze Temperr.

Pro boxer and rising star Ryan Garcia was impressed by Salt Papi’s victory convincing him that the latter should next face Jake Paul.

They are both undefeated in boxing and all of their wins are via knockout.

After the victory, Salt Papi posted a video clip on his Instagram showing a comparison of his knockout to Manny Pacquiao’s iconic KO hit to Ricky Hatton.

The post received lots of comments including boxing’s only eight-division world champion himself.

Pacquiao wrote on the comment “Pwede Na” in which Salt Papi replied with a “salamat po.”
