Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury was everything we had hoped for. The love for the heavyweight division was rekindled when 12 rounds of action ended last Saturday, albeit in a controversial draw…
Since that night in Los Angeles, California, everyone has been talking about boxing’s heavyweights again. For some time, while lineal champion Tyson Fury was absent, frustration grew around Deontay Wilder’s talks with Anthony Joshua.
Eventually, the Joshua fight couldn’t be agreed, and fans were instead given Wilder vs. Fury. It was the best gift we could have asked for, even with Fury being out of top competition for nearly three years.
With the WBC title on the line, Wilder and Fury put on an electrifying show which saw “The Gypsy King” close to being counted out in the last round. The eventual draw caused massive debate but since then so have Wilder’s comments.
Broken Arm Claim
Although he showed plenty of respect to Fury after the fight, Wilder has gone on record this week with some interesting claims. He posted a video of what he claimed to be a long 10 count which Fury didn’t make, and also says he broke his arm training for “Gypsy King.”
Wilder said the injury, which required surgery in September, affected his accuracy during the fight. After reading the following statement, fans have been roasting Wilder on social media:
I do feel it affected my accuracy.”
