- Deontay Wilder is billed to take on WBC heavyweight titleholder, Tyson Fury in a trilogy bout slated for July 24
- Wilder was defeated by the Brit in February 2020 and has claimed that Fury cheated during the encounter
- Ahead of their trilogy bout, Wilder has once again alleged that Fury is already planning on how to cheat yet again
Heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder has alleged that Tyson Fury is working on a master plan to cheat in their trilogy fight, insisting he was not knocked out during their rematch, talkSPORT reports.
Wilder claimed that the ‘Gypsy King’ had cheated during their last fight and that he is already planning to do so when they meet again.
Fury floored Wilder twice when they met in February 2020 before the bout was stopped, and the pair are now set to meet once again on July 24.
Last October, Wilder posted a video on social media where he accused Fury of cheating and then continued with the claims in various interviews.
Ahead of their third meeting, Wilder has stood by his remarks. He told 78SPORTSTV via GiveMeSport:
“You think he ain’t gonna try to cheat this time? Oh they’re thinking, they’re coming up with a master plan.
“But my thing to him – man, you couldn’t even get me out on loaded gloves and the conditions I was under.
“You couldn’t knock me out, you didn’t knock me out.”
Wilder says he's a Nigerian
