Tyson Fury is taunted by Deontay Wilder with additional ‘cheat’ jibes ahead of their trilogy battle.
Deontay Wilder is taunting Tyson Fury again before of their third fight this week, claiming the Gypsy King is planning to ‘cheat’ in Las Vegas.
As the pair prepare to battle for the third time at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this Saturday, Deontay Wilder believes Tyson Fury will try to ‘cheat.’
The Bronze Bomber has accused his opponent of ‘cheating’ before, with the American accusing Fury of tampering with his gloves and fighting with his hands in a ‘improper stance’ during their second encounter in February.
Wilder’s accusations didn’t end there; in November of last year, he claimed Fury had a ‘egg-weight size object’ inside his gloves to help him perform better in their fight.
In their most recent match, Fury won by technical knockout in the seventh round, capping off one of the greatest British heavyweight performances overseas.
As the duo prepare for their third battle this Saturday, Wilder believes Fury has already devised a’masterplan’ to repeat his victory.
“Do you think he’s not going to try to cheat this time?” Wilder asked. Oh, they’re planning, they’re devising a strategy. My response to him was, “Man, you couldn’t pull me out on loaded gloves in those conditions.” You couldn’t have knocked me out, and you didn’t.” A video of Wilder in training shows him calling Fury a cheat during his session, implying that the American’s charges of cheating from his opponent are being used to psych him up for their trilogy match.
“I only have to do half of that, he ain’t good,” Wilder was overheard saying. I only have to accomplish half of it; he’s not who people think he is. While going through his strenuous exercise program, he exclaimed, “He’s a f***ing cheater.”
Later in the video, the 35-year-old sat down for an interview, in which he discussed how his team’s positivism will ensure victory in the early hours of Sunday morning.
“I feel wonderful, and I have a great team,” he added. Everyone is in agreement, and we have a team that is in agreement. The directions are becoming more explicit.
“How can you go wrong when you have so many?” asks Brinkwire.
