John Fury in epic rant about ‘bulls***’ Deontay Wilder excuses, says American is in ‘denial’ and should sack his whole team for allowing him to fight Tyson Fury again
John Fury has ripped into Deontay Wilder and his camp over the excuses that emerged since his rematch defeat to Tyson Fury.
In the immediate aftermath, the ‘Bronze Bomber’ suggested that his heavy ring walk outfit contributed to his downfall and he was widely mocked as a result.
Wilder himself has made no excuses since, though some of his fans have put together various conspiracy theories.
The most popular of these – dubbed ‘Glovegate’ – re-emerged back in June through Wilder’s brother who made a series of shocking allegations.
Now, Wilder’s sparring partner Junior Fa has claimed that the former WBC champion was injured heading into the bout.
Tyson’s father John Fury reacted to iFL TV: “Shouldn’t have fought then, should he?
“It’s up to his team to say, ‘You’re injured, you can’t fight.’
“To be honest with you, it’s the biggest load of bulls*** I’ve ever heard from a professional sportsman.
“You got a beatdown, swallow it, look at it, assess it and know where you went wrong. Build on it and work on what mistakes you made.
“Until you accept what’s happened to you – it’s what you call being in denial – you’re not gonna learn from it and you’re not gonna move on.
“You’re just gonna get another beatdown for being silly, because his ego’s bigger than him.
“Shut up now with all those daft, rubbish comments you come out with, it’s absurd.
“It’s a joke, I’ve never heard it from a professional sportsman, just making yourself look bad.
“And the kid can fight, he’s a good fighter, good defending champion.
“He did get a bad beatdown because of his corner. The only good man he’s got is Mark Breland, the rest don’t know what they’re doing.
“They can’t do, because they wouldn’t be putting him back in so soon after the beatdown he got.
“If they put him back in, they want sacking.”
Fury Sr then went on to compare the reaction from Wilder’s camp to the reaction from Dillian Whyte following his recent defeat to Alexander Povetkin.
“Dillian Whyte took it like a man,” he continued.
“What happened to Dillian Whyte could happen to any heavyweight, it’s heavyweight boxing.
“But you don’t hear Dillian Whyte coming out with 1,000 excuses, do you? The man’s a fighting man, he’s a tough guy.
“He’ll improve because he’s not in denial, he’s accepted where he went wrong, he’s gonna work on what mistakes he made and move on.
“Dillian Whyte’s a different man to Deontay Wilder, he’s more of a man.”
