Fury claimed Wilder's WBC world title in their last bout
Former heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder has continued his long list of bizarre reasonings as to why he lost to Tyson Fury. Reported on BoxingScene.com,Wilder has alleged there were fingernail mark inside his ear, proving the malice in the (unproven) Fury glove theory.
Sourcing the Last Stand podcast, Wilder is reported to have "doubled down on all the reasons – each one more fanciful than the next – on why he lost to Tyson fury in their ballyhooed rematch Last February, including the much-lampooned theory that Fury wore doctored gloves in that fight."
On the now infamous 'heavy costume' excuse, Wilder likened it to "having sex and playing basketball", reiterating the costume was not an excuse. "They overheard something in the locker room, it wasn't down to the suit. It was a heavy suit, but it didn't have enough to affect my performance", said Wilder before rounding back on Fury.
“I haven’t yet heard valid proof of how gloves flap all the way back, why your hands were in the middle of the glove, why did my ear have scratches deep inside my ear? Because of your (Fury’s) nails,” Wilder (42-1-1, 41KOs) told Brian Custer on The Last Stand PodCast. “It’s so many different facts and proof that we have. But it just shows the greatness of it."
"I saw in the first fight when Ricky Hatton was pulling down your gloves to put your hand in the improper position," Wilder said in the video. ”Y'all tried the same method the second time, but this time, you scratched flesh out of my ears which caused my ears to bleed.
“It's impossible for a brand new 10 ounce glove to bend, to keep a smushed-in form or to have loose space. I highly believe you put something had in your glove. Something the size and the shape of an egg weight. It's the reason why the side of my face swelled up in an egg weight form and it left a dent in my face as well. But in the midst of it all, you still couldn't keep this king down. You would have had to kill me. In the end, it took a crab in the bucket referee and a disloyal trainer to throw the towel in just to stop me."
Mark Breland, Jay Deas, Ricky Hatton have all come in for criticism, Breland paying the price with his job, as Wilder continued big claims against Tyson Fury.
"He cheated. He flat out cheated,” Wilder told Custer. “That wasn’t the best man. That was a coward. He got a long reputation of being a known cheater. And if you known to be a known cheater, why you gonna stop now? The gist of it, if they have the opportunity to cheat and you don’t cheat, they consider you to be as a sucker.”
"Go back to the rap sheet and history of him cheating and cheating even going back with the Klitschko fight,” Wilder continued. “So he wasn’t no better man at that fight. It’s sad that I’m so great in this sport that they had to cheat me. what makes me even more powerful, my legacy even stronger than it already is.”
