On today's Pardon My Take... TYSON FURY! The Gypsy King joined Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter on today's show to preview his huge Saturday night fight against Deontay Wilder III. The third chapter of their rivalry takes place on Saturday night in Las Vegas, and Fury took some time to chat with the guys regarding some of the most notable parts of this rivalry. One topic they hit on was regarding the excuses that Fury says Wilder has made over the course of the last few years. On today's show, Mr. Cat had Fury power rank Wilder's excuses:
Mr. Cat: In terms of the second fight, was that the most pathetic excuse ever? That he said the garb that he was wearing slowed his legs down in his entrance?
Tyson Fury: I'm not sure, there has been a lot of pathetic excuses over the years from people who lost fights. Well, I think that's got to be up there. One of his many, 50 excuses anyway, so, we'll see.
Mr. Cat: Yeah, let's do a quick ranking of his most pathetic excuses. Top three most pathetic excuses from Deontay Wilder.
Tyson Fury: I think the best one was: his trainer drugged his water.
Mr. Cat: That's a good one.
Mr. Commenter: It's like a racehorse.
Mr. Cat: That's a really good one.
Mr. Commenter: It's not his fault somebody slipped him a mickey.
Tyson Fury: And then the second one was, I had metal objects in my gloves.
Mr. Cat: OK, that's good.
Tyson Fury: And then his third one would be, the costume was too heavy, that he walked to the ring.
Mr. Commenter: I actually do think that the costume made a difference, especially if you look at what he did versus how you entered the ring. You literally got carried into the ring, you didn't have any miles at all on your legs, that's smart. He walked through, I think, the entire MGM casino floor. I think he did a lap with the pit bosses wearing that giant robe, and then came in. So, I could see how he'd be tired. He did a half marathon, basically.
Tyson Fury: Yeah, I can make a point for that.
I wonder if Deontay Wilder will see this blog before he steps into the ring on Saturday night and use it as bulletin board material? Probably not (definitely not), but you never know. I am very much looking forward to this bout tomorrow.
