TYSON FURY has proven there is no love lost with old foe Deontay Wilder as the cheating row rumbles on.
The Bronze Bomber has reeled off excuse after excuse following his defeat to the Gypsy King in February 2020.
After a draw 14 months prior, Fury inflicted Wilder’s first career defeat with a seventh-round TKO to steal his WBC title belt.
Wilder, 35, has been adamant since the loss that Fury’s victory was not what it seemed with a series of bizarre excuses and sensational cheat claims.
One of those included accusing his assistant trainer Mark Breland, who threw in the towel, of working for Fury.
Wilder then accused Breland of spiking his water before claiming his £31,000 ring-walk jacket played a key part in his defeat because it was too heavy.
Breland wasted no time in denying Wilder’s wild conspiracy theories.
Wilder also accused Fury of placing metal lumps inside the gloves which trainer Ben Davison later slammed as ‘nonsense.’
It came after the American claimed Fury’s hands were not fitted in the gloves correctly before their first fight in December 2018.
Fury has always vehemently denied the claims and says Wilder has ‘let his family down’ in the aftermath of his loss.
Speaking on Behind The Gloves, Fury said: “There is still stuff going on behind the scenes that I cannot talk about.
“I don’t know what’s going on, I pay lawyers millions of dollars to sort s*** out but I am sure they will.
“Everything he said, it was hurtful and resentful, it was not something I would ever say without evidence.
“It was disrespectful and as a former champion and warrior he has let himself down.
“He has made a million excuses and then accused me of cheating which would have belittled my victory over him.
“If I had said any of this, there would have been a big problem but to me it is all sticks and stones.
“It was hurtful and dishonourable and he has let himself, his fans, and his family name down.
“I trained my guts out for months on end and stood in front of the biggest puncher in heavyweight history, stood toe-to-toe with the mother f***** and knocked him out, beat him, upsetting, to say the least. I would never say it. I would say ‘well done, the better man won’.”
Ahead of his expected heavyweight title showdown with Anthony Joshua, Fury also believes his record means he is unrivalled in the division.
He continued: “I am the best of this era because I beat everyone in it. Klitschko, Wilder and AJ.

“If AJ wins he will still not have beaten anybody. He has to beat me and Wilder.
“I don’t think he can beat Deontay Wilder, I have no love for Wilder, I think he is a piece of s*** dosser but I am the only man who can beat him.
“I am not a betting man but I would put a lot of money on Wilder beating all the others.”
