Deontay Wilder Accuses Tyson Fury Of Cheating In Their Fights In Controversial Video Message
Deontay Wilder has accused Tyson Fury of cheating in both of their WBC world heavyweight title fights.
Following their controversial draw in December 2018, the Bronze Bomber suffered a first career defeat in brutal fashion at the hands of Fury in February of this year and blamed the loss on the 40lbs costume he wore during his Black History Month tribute ring-walk.
The fight was stopped in the seventh round after Wilder's trainer threw in the towel following some serious punishment, but after a third bout between the pair was nixed, the 35-year-old has sensationally claimed Fury's gloves were tampered with.
He posted a rambling video message, including footage which he deems to back up his conspiracy that the Gypsy King's gloves were illegally loaded.
"The bible tells us that silence is golden but my ears can still hear but my eyes can still see. The bible also tells us to be swift to heart and slow to speak.
"You see what you don't understand, what you did was what my people deal with all the time, people cheating you for providing our greatness into the world.
"But it's a burden that we cut off only to make us strong so in the first fight when Ricky Hatton was pulling down your gloves to put your fists in an improper position... you all tried the same method the second fight but but this time you scratched flesh out of my ears which caused them to bleed.
"I highly believe you put something hard in your glove, something the shape and size of an egg... the reason why the side of head swelled up in the shape of an egg and left a dent in my head.
"But in the midst of it all you couldn't keep this king down,. you would have had to kill me. In the end it took a crap referee and a disloyal trainer to throw in the towel just to stop me.

Wilder is echoing comments made my his brother Marsellos that the dent to his head and severe damage to his ear could not have been caused by a glove or fist.
Last month, Fury's trainer SugarHill Steward brutally mocked the assertion after he arrived at the heavyweight's gym in Morecambe and approached a new mural on the wall, depicting the fight.
'This is the right hand that changed the world... I'll get right up close to the pillow fists," said Steward, as he put his hand on the mural.
"Just check there's nothing in them gloves, will you?" joked Fury, as he filmed his coach.
"I don't feel nothing," replied Steward.
"But the autopsy has said there was a metal object in the gloves. From what I heard."
