- Tyson Fury has lashed out at Deontay Wilder saying he has 'lost his marbles'
- The Gypsy King came out victorious in their second game earlier this year
- Wilder has now claimed that the WBC champion cheated to win the match
Reigning WBC champion Tyson Fury has replied Deontay Wilder after claiming the Briton tampered with his gloves before their rematch in February.
The Gypsy King handed the American his first career defeat after forcing him to kiss the canvass in the seventh round.
Wilder's camp had to throw in the towel after they saw him bleeding through his ears and he was eventually rushed to the hospital afterward.
In his reply, Fury suggested that the Bronze Bomber had “lost his marbles” to be uttering such a statement according to Daily Star.
The publication recalled that Wilder had initially blamed the defeat on the extravagant 40lbs costume he wore while making his entry into the arena on the night.
He also blasted his trainer Mark Breland for throwing the towel and later accusing Fury of cheating.
The 35-year-old labelled Fury a 'coward' in his recent post on Twitter after refusing to agree to a trilogy after their first two bouts.
However, the Briton in his response slammed the former WBC holder, saying the American has been making a number of excuses since his defeat in February. Fury told talkSPORT:
“I think he has lost his marbles! First of all it was the suit, then it was the bicep injury, then his trainer was on our team, then the referee was against him, then I had weights in my gloves…
“Now someone has spiked his water. It’s one of those things, isn’t it.”
Both Fury and Wilder was scheduled to face off in a trilogy in the summer but COVID-19 forced them to shift the date to December.
However, the reigning champion is now turning his attention elsewhere amid Wilder and his team’s attempt to reschedule the trilogy for 2021.
“The original date was July 18. That didn’t happen because he had an injury so it got put back three months to October, then that didn’t happen because they were trying to get a venue.
“And then they had three dates in December – 5th, 12th, 19th – which I agreed to all them and obviously that didn’t’ happen. So, I’m not going to wait around forever.”
Legit.ng earlier reported that Tyson Fury WBC champion appears ready to defend his heavyweight title against Agit Kabayel in London on December 5.
The Gypsy King was initially meant to take on Deontay Wilder in a trilogy sometime this year but it has now been postponed till 2021.
He is now scheduled to face-off with the 28-year-old at the Royal Albert Hall in his first fight in the UK in more than two years.
