Deontay Wilder Suggests Tyson Fury Cheated in Bitter Trilogy Fight

Deontay Wilder has raised eyebrows with his recent suggestion that Tyson Fury cheated in their trilogy fight. Wilder believes that Fury's lackluster performance against Francis Ngannou in a crossover bout proves foul play.

Poor Performance Raises Suspicions

During his fight with Ngannou, Fury failed to impress and only managed to secure a split decision victory after being knocked down. This unexpected performance has led Wilder to question whether cheating was involved.

Wilder's Claims

Wilder, who drew once and lost twice to Fury in their trilogy, believes there may be a reason behind Fury's subpar performance. In an interview with Blue Blood Sports TV, Wilder stated that people have been speculating about possible foul play, including allegations of glove tampering.

However, it is important to note that there is currently no evidence to support these claims of cheating in any of Fury's fights against Wilder.

Looking Ahead

Despite the controversy, Fury remains undefeated after his bout with Ngannou and is now preparing for his next fight. In February, he will face Oleksandr Usyk in a highly anticipated world title showdown.

The fight was originally scheduled for December, but was postponed following Fury's victory over Ngannou.

Wilder's accusations have certainly added fuel to the fire, but only time will tell if any concrete evidence of cheating emerges. Until then, fans will eagerly await Fury's upcoming clash with Usyk.
