"I haven't yet heard valid proof of how gloves flap all the way back, why your hands were in the middle of the glove, why did my ear have scratches deep inside my ear? Because of your (Fury's) nails.
"It's so many different facts and proof that we have. But it just shows the greatness of it. He cheated. He flat out cheated
"That wasn't the best man. That was a coward. He got a long reputation of being a known cheater. And if you known to be a known cheater, why you gonna stop now?
"The gist of it, if they have the opportunity to cheat and you don't cheat, you're known as a sucker."

His comments follow on from the video posted on social media in which Wilder reeled off a list of conspiracies he believes about the fight. Wilder said:

"I saw in the first fight when Ricky Hatton was pulling down your gloves to put your hand in the improper position.

"Y'all tried the same method the second time, but this time, you scratched flesh out of my ears which caused my ears to bleed.

"It's impossible for a brand new 10-ounce glove to bend, to keep a smushed-in form or to have loose space. I highly believe you put something in your glove. Something the size and the shape of an egg weight.
"It's the reason why the side of my face swelled up in an egg weight form and it left a dent in my face as well. But in the midst of it all, you still couldn't keep this king down.
"You would have had to kill me. In the end, it took a crab in the bucket referee and a disloyal trainer to throw the towel in just to stop me."
