Deontay Wilder's Brother Says Tyson Fury Inflicted Dent 'No Glove Or Fists Was Able To Cause'

Deontay Wilder's Brother Says Tyson Fury Inflicted Dent 'No Glove Or Fists Was Able To Cause'

Deontay Wilder's has sensationally accused Tyson Fury of illegally loading his glove in his dominant victory over the Bronze Bomber in February.

Wilder suffered his first career defeat and lost his WBC world heavyweight championship in brutal fashion after a masterclass from Fury, who secured the TKO victory in the seventh round.

The 34-year old was battered and bloodied inside the squared circle and initially blamed the loss on the 40lbs costume he wore during his Black History Month tribute ring-walk.

Now months on, with the two slated to meet again for a third time, Wilder's younger brother Marsellos says that the former champion suffered a dent to his head that he claims could not have been caused by a glove or fist.

The 31-year old, also a boxer, took to Instagram to accuse Fury of using a blunt object - citing doctor's opinion and the result of an autopsy.

He also stated that "the king will rise again" in the rematch.

There have been plenty of conspiracy theories that claim Fury's gloves were tampered with and it allowed him to punch where there was no cushion.

However, Fury's cutman, Jacob 'Stitch' Duran, was quick to play down any talk of possible tampering.

"I'll give you the facts, the Nevada State Athletic Commission is one of the best commission in the world," he said, as per Boxing Social.

"They handle the gloves until it's time to put them on. There was no tampering whatsoever. I was there. It's just a big myth.

"It didn't happen. That's why you have the inspectors there to make sure everything is followed within the guidelines. None of that happened, but it's good for discussion.

"It's going to fade away. It's not even true, it's not even close to being true."
