Dominic Ingle, former trainer of Kell Brook and Billy Joe Saunders, has rubbished claims that Tyson Fury may have tampered with his gloves during his victory over Deontay Wilder last month.
Fury produced one of the finest displays from a British boxer fighting abroad to clinch the WBC world heavyweight title, flooring Wilder in the third and fifth rounds before the American’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh.
However, fans of Wilder have attempted to discredit Fury since his stunning win, questioning whether the Gypsy King’s hands were fully inside his gloves during the showdown at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand.
A number of videos have been doing the rounds which show Fury’s gloves flapping as he connects with the Bronze Bomber’s face during both of their bouts.
Asked about the videos, Ingle told Boxing News TV: ‘People who do those videos are just looking for video hits because I had a similar thing with Kell Brook and Shawn Porter saying that Kell Brook’s hands were illegally wrapped.
‘You’ve got inspectors there watching everything you do, inspecting the gloves. They take the gloves off you after the fight, they take the wraps off you after the fight and they analyse and inspect them. That’s what happens.
‘They take the gloves off and they keep the gloves and they check the gloves. So forget about the conspiracy theory. It’s nonsense.’
Wilder has since agreed to a trilogy bout with Fury but Ingle believes it will be the same result when the two fighters do battle again later this year.
‘It was a fantastic fight. Tyson Fury took the decision out of the judges’ hands,’ Ingle said.
‘He went in, pressured Deontay Wilder, never gave him a minute. The big right hook to the top of the head is what set it all off and he never seemed right from that point onwards, Deontay Wilder, and Tyson capitalised on that and forced a stoppage.
‘I think even in a rematch now Tyson Fury’s just got his number. I don’t think Wilder would ever beat the likes of Tyson Fury. To be honest, I don’t think anybody is going to beat him.’
On Wilder triggering the rematch clause, Ingle added: ‘He’s got no choice and there’s always a chance but he was unbeaten last time.
‘Whether he’s taken his foot off the pedal or he’s not been playing the game or training properly, who knows the reason why.
‘I think the other thing there is will Tyson Fury be able to get motivated for that fight again because if you look at Tyson’s fights previous to both Wilder fights, the guys he was fighting weren’t very good.
‘But Tyson seems to scare himself or motivate himself that little bit extra for these big fights and he completely looks like a different fighter.
‘It was the same with his fights before [Wladimir[ Klitschko, they weren’t particularly fantastic but they’re big fights and that may be the worry. Tyson has beaten Wilder very well… is he going to be able to give himself that fear factor again to do the job again? I don’t know.’
