Tyson Fury Reacts To Deontay Wilder’s Cheating Accusations
Tyson Fury has addressed Deontay Wilder’s claims of cheating.
Fury and Wilder have shared the boxing ring twice. In their first encounter back in December 2018, the two fought to a split draw. Their rematch back in February had a far different outcome. Fury earned the seventh-round TKO victory to capture the WBC Heavyweight Championship.
Fury recently posted a video to respond to Wilder’s claims.
“This is just a quick video to address all this foul play talk from Deontay Wilder and his team. I just read an article before saying I might have had some blunt objects in my gloves. Yeah, two big 19 stone, 275-pound destroyers in each glove. So yeah, getting punched on the temple may do that to you. But not unless Deontay Wilder’s own trainer Jay Deas was in on a conspiracy as well, along with all the Las Vegas state commission guys, who never left the room. Jay Deas was in the room while I had my hands wrapped, he examined them. He was in there when I had my gloves put on, examined them. Yeah and everybody else was in the room. They don’t leave you, we all notice.
“So everybody citing foul play, bullsh*t. The next time I’ll put a dent in his boxing career, end it. Because it’ll be two knockout losses in a row, bye-bye forever.”
Fury has said he’s moving on from a trilogy bout with Wilder. “The Gypsy King’s” team claims Wilder’s rematch clause expired. Fury is now looking to put his WBC gold on the line against Agit Kabayel on December 5 in London, England.
