Tyson Fury responds to Deontay Wilder blaming defeat on his outfit

Tyson Fury has described suggestions he used “foul play” to beat Deontay Wilder as ”bulls***”.

Fury dismantled the American back in February to claim the WBC world heavyweight championship with a seventh-round stoppage.

But Wilder’s younger brother, Marsellos Wilder, has speculated that “blunt objects” were used in Fury’s gloves to increase the damage inflicted with his punches.

“It was discovered by doctors that my brother has a dent [at] the side of his head [due] to a blunt object [striking] his head [in] his last fight. No glove or fist was able to cause the damage according to the autopsy,” Wilder’s brother said.

But Fury has now rubbished those claims, maintaining his increased weight for the rematch and pinpoint accuracy are the reasons for the damage to Wilder.

Fury maintains he beat Wilder cleanly 

“This is just a quick video to address this foul play talk from Deontay Wilder and his team. I’ve just read an article saying I might have had some blunt objects in my gloves, yeah, two big 19st 7lb, 275lb destroyers in each glove,” Fury said.

“Getting punched on the temple will do that to you, but not unless Deontay Wilder’s own trainer Jay Deas is in on the conspiracy theory as well, along with all the Las Vegas state commission guys who never left the room.

“Jay Deas was in the room when I had my hands wrapped; he examined them, he was in there when I had my gloves put on, and examined them – everyone else in the room too, they don’t leave, we know this.

“Everybody citing foul play, bulls***.”

The pair are set to meet for a third time with Wilder activating his rematch clause. Though Covid-19 has delayed confirmation, Bob Arum has claimed the fight will take place in December.

And Fury has vowed to this time end Wilder’s career with another dominant victory.

Fury added: “Next time I’ll put a dent in his boxing career and end it because it will be two knockout losses in a row and bye, bye forever.”
