Deontay Wilder has accused Tyson Fury of cheating ahead of next weekend's third and final fight in Nevada.
"You think he ain't gonna try to cheat this time?" Wilder said, as quoted by GiveMeSport. "Oh they're thinking, they're coming up with a master plan.
"But my thing to him- man, you couldn't even get me out on loaded gloves and the conditions I was under. You couldn't knock me out. You didn't knock me out."
This is not the first time the former heavyweight champion has questioned Fury's integrity in the ring. Following the latter's triumph in their last fight in February 2020, Wilder accused his opponent of tampering with his gloves.
The American even went on to claim his own trainer Mark Breland had spiked his drink, an accusation that led to Breland's removal from his position in Wilder's camp.
Fury rejected Wilder's claims last year and implied that his great rival was simply clutching at straws.
"I think he has lost his marbles," the Mancunian told talkSPORT, as quoted by The Mirror. "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?"
The 33 year old has also admitted the intensity of his training has made him feel 'absolutely terrible' heading into the fight, although he thinks that will change once the bell is sounded on Saturday night.
"I feel terrible, absolutely terrible," Fury said, as quoted by Daily Star. "But if you did an eight week training camp and you were just winding down and you feel fantastic, you didn't do it right.
"If you brutalise your body for eight weeks, training twice a day, six days a week, getting battered to bits in sparring by four or five different guys at a time, if you feel great then you're a bionic human being.
"And in a week's time, I will feel fantastic."
