Tyson Fury’s dad John blasts Deontay Wilder’s excuses for KO loss as ‘load of bulls***’ and vows same in trilogy fight

TYSON FURY’S dad John has torn into Deontay Wilder over his ‘bulls***’ excuses for losing to the Gypsy King.

The Bronze Bomber first claimed his ‘heavy’ £31,000 ring walk costume was to blame for making him tired in his February KO defeat in Las Vegas.

Then it was alleged by Wilder’s brother that Fury had hidden a blunt object in his gloves before the WBC heavyweight king was cleared of any wrongdoing.

Wilder’s former sparring partner Junior Fa also said Wilder injured his bicep before his fight.

The American had surgery to repair it immediately after the first pro defeat of his career to Fury.

None of that cut with Big John though, who absolutely slated Wilder’s claims and the accusations of others.

Speaking ahead of Fury and Wilder meeting in a trilogy fight possibly overseas, Fury Snr – who unofficially broke the world record for most Ferrero Rocher consumed in a minute at the weekend – told iFL TV: “Biggest load of bulls*** I’ve ever heard from a pro sportsman.

“You’re just going to get another beatdown for being silly, because his ego’s bigger than him.

“Shut up with the daft, rubbish comments, it’s absurd.”

The Fury father and son combo should be careful what they wish for though, after the legendary George Foreman warned them Wilder can ‘easily’ KO the champ.

Foreman said: “I had a nice conversation with Wilder, nice conversation with him.

“We talked because I was in a position where I lost unexpectedly with the title in Africa. Only I know what he’s going through.

“He’s gonna have to live with [the Fury loss] but I can show him how to live with that and come back better. We talked a lot on those lines.

“Not only beat him, [Wilder] can do it easily. Give him another chance. He’ll show you.”
