Tyson Fury responds to Deontay Wilder's conspiracy theories

Tyson Fury believes Deontay Wilder has ‘lost his marbles’ following the Bronze Bomber’s string of conspiracy theories surrounding his defeat in February.

Fury beat Wilder in seven rounds to win the WBC heavyweight title in Las Vegas.

But after months of silence, Wilder accused Fury of cheating in a lengthy rant against the Gypsy King last week.

Wilder claimed that Fury had an object resembling an ‘egg weight’ hidden inside his gloves and also bizarrely accused his former trainer, Mark Breland, of spiking his water before the fight.

But when asked about Wilder’s accusations, Fury laughed off the claims made by the 35-year-old.

‘I think he has lost his marbles,’ Fury told talkSPORT.

‘First of all it was the suit, then it was the bicep injury, then his trainer was on our team, then the referee was against him, then I had weights in my gloves.

‘Now someone has spiked his water.

‘It’s one of those things, isn’t it.’

Fury also revealed why a trilogy fight has failed to materialise this year despite Wilder initially activating his rematch clause shortly after his defeat in February.

‘The original date was July 18,’ explained Fury.

‘That didn’t happen because he had an injury so it got put back three months to October, then that didn’t happen because they were trying to get a venue.

‘And then they had three dates in December – 5th, 12th, 19th – which I agreed to all them and obviously that didn’t’ happen.

‘So, I’m not going to wait around forever.’
