Deontay Wilder denounces a conspiracy against him when he lost the world heavyweight title (WBC) to Tyson Fury last February.
Deontay Wilder, who lost his world heavyweight title (WBC) to Tyson Fury last February, had broken his silence to verbalize a series of irregularities that, according to him, surrounded that fight and caused his defeat in the seventh round, when one of his coaches, former champion Mark Breland, threw in the towel when he saw the punishment his pupil was suffering. Wilder later fired Breland.
“That son of … didn’t even give me a warning. If you are part of this plot, it was something that he did not mind doing because he had to fulfil his obligation. In the seventh round I was recovering and suddenly threw in the towel, “says Wilder on the YouTube channel, 78SPORTSTV.
“About 15 minutes before going to fight, warming up with gloves on, I was perfect, I felt great … until I went to the ring. It was a transformation; I was drinking water and stuff, trying to stay hydrated, and it just started to feel weird. My water changed me, like taking a muscle relaxant or something. My water was manipulated, it was as if I had no control over my body, my legs were weak and things like that, “says the American fighter, who also reiterated his suspicions about Fury’s gloves.
My water was manipulated, it was like I had no control over my body, my legs were weak and things like that.
“In the first fight with Ricky Hatton in his corner, he pulled down his gloves to put his fists in the wrong position. They tried the same method in the second fight, and this time they ripped the flesh from my ears, causing them to bleed. I firmly believe he put something hard in his glove, something the shape and size of an egg. It is the reason why the sides of my head swelled like an egg, and it left my head full of lumps, ”Wilder censured, who also harshly criticized the main judge of the fight.
“Kenny Bayless came into my locker room, looked me in the eye and told me that if I hit Fury on the back of the head, a rabbit hit, or if I hit him when the bell rang, I would be disqualified or disqualified would subtract two points. I guess those rules only applied to me because it wasn’t like that with my rival. He hit me on the back of my neck and head all night and Bayless did nothing about it, to the point that I got a lot of bumps and bruises. His attitude was very frustrating for me, ”said Deontay Wilder.
