Tyson Fury responds to glove conspiracy theory in Deontay Wilder rematch

Tyson Fury has hit back at suggestions that he tampered with his gloves during his victory over Deontay Wilder in February.

Fury delivered a dominating performance in Las Vegas to beat Wilder in seven rounds and win the WBC heavyweight title.

But following his win, Wilder supporters have accused Fury of not having his hands fully inside his gloves.

Fury has now been accused of having a blunt object inside his gloves during his rematch with Wilder.

Wilder’s brother, Marsellos, who fights at cruiserweight, wrote on Instagram: ‘It was discovered by doctors that my brother has a dent in the side of his head due to a blunt object struck against his head from his last fight.

‘No glove or fist was able to cause the damage according to the autopsy.’

However, Fury has now responded to those claims and has reminded Wilder’s camp that his co-trainer, Jay Deas, had no issue with the gloves on the night of the fight.

‘This is just a quick video to address all this foul-play talk from Deontay Wilder and his team,’ said Fury.

‘I’ve just read an article saying I might have had some blunt objects in my gloves… yeah, two big 19 stone 7, 275-pound destroyers in each glove.

‘So, yeah, getting punched in the temple may do that do you.

‘Not unless Deontay Wilder’s own trainer, Jay Deas, was in on the 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, [he] examined them.

‘Everybody else was in the room, they don’t leave you, we all know this.

‘So everybody citing foul play… bulls***.

‘And 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.’
