Four months after it happened, the ending of the rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury still has people talking. Some of the comments made have caused a stir within the boxing world.
Cruiserweight Marsellos Wilder, the brother of Deontay, has decided to call out Fury, claiming he cheated in the rematch from their initial 2018 bout. During the fight, Fury knocked Wilder down twice and had him bleeding by the ears. His corner threw in the towel, awarding Fury the win. In an Instagram story, Marsellos discussed an apparent autopsy that took place after the fight.
According to the 31-year-old, Fury used loaded gloves.
“You know it’s crazy when you [are] great,” Wilder stated, via Boxing Scene. “They gotta do everything that is underneath real to figure out how to stop you. And the most wicked sh-t about [it] is- people on your own team will do anything for the hate [or] money to help [the opponents] take you down. 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.
“My daddy once told me if you pull a gun out on somebody, you better kill them. Because if you don’t, they are gonna come back and kill you. The king is about to rise again. We [are] coming for blood.”
This is one of several times Wilder’s team has stated Wilder lost the fight through other factors. While exercising his rematch clause, Wilder blamed the suit he wore to the ring for being too heavy on his legs. His team also believes that Mark Breland, Wilder’s assistant trainer, should not have stopped the fight early.
One of the more active fighters on social media, Fury ended up posting on Instagram his response to the accusations.
“This is just a quick video to address this foul play talk from Deontay Wilder and his team,” Fury would state. “I’ve just read an article before saying that I have have had some blunt objects in my gloves. Yeah, two big 19-stone, 275-pound destroyers in each glove.
“Getting punched on the temple may 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, examined them. Everyone else that was in the room, they don’t leave you, we know this.
“So, everybody citing foul play, b*llsh*t, and the next time I’ll put a dent in his boxing career and end it, because it will be two knockout losses in a row. Bye-bye forever.”
Wilder is currently recovering from biceps surgery and has yet to personally respond to Fury or all of this talk from his team.
