Mike Tyson Finally Gives His Take On Deontay Wilder's Costume Excuse

Mike Tyson Finally Gives His Take On Deontay Wilder's Costume Excuse

Mike Tyson has finally given his take on Deontay Wilder's bizarre costume excuse for his crushing defeat to Tyson Fury.

Wilder blamed the loss to Fury on his elaborate 45lb costume he wore into the ring earlier this year.

He claimed his legs were weakened as a result of the attire and Tyson recognises 'The Bronze Bomber's reaction.

"Wilder's stuff's a lot of energy that I once had," he told Yahoo Sports. "We have to be able to accept our mistakes, stand up and say, 'Hey, I messed up, the best man won.'

"We can't be consumed with our egos. Nobody was more consumed with their ego than me.

"We always look for excuses when we lose and say, 'Well I couldn't lose, there must've been a mistake, somebody had to cheat me.'
