‘My mind is very violent’

Deontay Wilder still believes Tyson Fury DID cheat during their rematch in February 2020, despite providing no evidence to support his claims.

The ‘Bronze Bomber’, who has the chance to right the wrongs on July 24 in the trilogy fight, also claims he will target a fight with Anthony Joshua to crown an undisputed heavyweight champion once he deals with Fury.

Former WBC champion Wilder genuinely believes Fury cheated in Las Vegas

The ‘Gypsy King’ delivered a punch-perfect performance in Las Vegas last year to bulldoze his way through the American and reclaim the world heavyweight championship.

Yet the narrative after the bout in Sin City centred on Wilder’s salacious accusations, rather than on Fury’s performance, much to the disappointment of the Brit.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman dismissed Wilder’s claims about Fury’s gloves as ‘ridiculous’, ‘difficult to understand’ and ‘very sad’.

But the 35-year-old still refuses to drop the conspiracy theories during an interview with Premier Boxing Champions.

“They saw no evil,” he said. They didn’t speak of it. “You can’t not see it!

“Gloves do not bend, your wrist does not bend.

“It doesn’t have loose space in it. It’s impossible, impossible for that to happen. On top of all the other things!”

Fury responded last year by saying that Wilder’s trainer was present when he strapped on his gloves: “Jay Deas was in the room when I had my hands wrapped, he examined them.

“He was in there when I had my gloves put on, examined them.”

Wilder said: “Jay is inexperienced with the gloves and what to look for, and is too on the friendly side. Ain’t nobody friend here no more.”

After an independent mediator ruled a third fight had to be made between the two men, rather than allow Fury to fight domestic rival Joshua, the Brit decided to once again mock his former foe.

Fury joked on social media: “Costume was too heavy, Fury’s gloves were loaded, I had weak legs, my water was spiked, Fury’s gloves had no padding, had bicep surgery, disloyal trainer, complications in camp, I broke my arm, fight stopped too early, Andre Dirrell’s fault.”

Having since sacked Mark Breland for throwing in the towel during the rematch, Wilder warned he is ‘very dangerous’.

“They couldn’t knock me out. They couldn’t keep me down,” Wilder said. “It took a disloyal trainer to throw the towel in.

“We know he has no power. He gave me everything and I took it all.

“I knew what was going on with my body, I knew something was wrong with me, I knew I was not right. I looked drained, drowsy.

“I was done wrong. The title for [the next fight] is retaliation.

“It showed me their true colours. I’m not as nice as I used to be. I’m not the same person. My mind is very violent.

“Their best chance was earlier – July or October [2020]. They have allowed me to heal up.

“The most dangerous person to be around is the one who has nothing to lose.”

The winner of this bout will not only end the rivalry between the two men for good, but will also leave with the WBC heavyweight and Ring Magazine world titles.

While negotiations between Fury and Joshua reached the final hurdle, but fell agonisingly short, a Wilder win in July would certainly alter the heavyweight landscape once again.

Joshua and Wilder tried to negotiate a deal to have an undisputed world heavyweight title fight in 2018, but the Alabama-native insists he is more than ready to try once again once he reclaims his title.

“[He] said: ‘It’s not about the man, it’s about the person with the belt’,” Wilder continued.

“We are going to hold them to their word. My focus is definitely on Fury, but after that fight?

“I’m very confident in what I am going to do. I’m strongly confident in what I’m about to do.

“How the hell will they beat a full, healthy Deontay Wilder?

“Once I get through Fury, once I do that? You already know what I want. But, as I’m hearing, [Joshua and his team] are already making up excuses – mandatories!

“I want them to keep that same energy because they tried to make the Fury fight.”
