Boxing news: Deontay Wilder claims his trainer spiked his water during loss to Tyson Fury

Mark Breland and Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder didn’t take his loss to Tyson Fury earlier this year well at all.

The American made a series of bizarre excuses in the aftermath of the fight.

Among his most famous excuses was blaming the costume he wore during his ring-walk for being ‘too heavy’.

He added to his list of excuses in an explosive video posted to social media yesterday, where he accused Fury of cheating by tampering with his gloves.

And now, Wilder may have come up with his most ridiculous excuse yet.

In an interview with 78SPORTSTV, Fury has now accused his co-trainer for the fight, Mark Breland, of spiking his water.

“About 15 minutes before going out to the fight, warming up on the mitts, it was perfect, I felt great,” he said, per talkSPORT.

“Until I went to the ring. That transformation, I was drinking certain water and stuff, trying to keep myself hydrated.

“I just start feeling weird. My water was spiked as if I took a muscle relaxer or something like that.

“Certain things, the atmosphere just didn’t seem right. It felt like something was about to go down, and not in my favour.

“It wasn’t just the suit, my water was tampered with…

“This feeling here, it was a different feeling. It was like I had no control over my body, my legs was weak and stuff like that.

“Even with the throwing in the towel. Mark [Breland] didn’t save my life.

“If you knew Deontay Wilder, you’d know that if I’m gonna draw my sword, I’mma live by that sword and I’mma die by that sword.

“I’mma live and die by that, period. And I’ve been telling my people that for five years so that ain’t nothing knew to them.

“So he knew that. When he did that, he already had orders not to do that.

“He even had somebody on Fury’s side to tell him, ‘Throw the towel in, they got a rematch.’

“Because I believe he was part of it. He was part of it.

“And, even more so, I think he’s got something to do with my water as well too.

“He was the only one handling my water. He was the only one. I have strong sources.”

Wilder then accused the referee for the fight, Kenny Bayless, of being against him.

“The referee coming in the dressing room, I could feel his negative energy.

“His eyes looked like he took a cocktail drink before going into the fight.

“His energy felt like, ‘I’m gonna do something to you black man, but I’ve gotta do it. I’m a crab in the bucket.’

“He was leaning on me, he elbowed me as well. Elbowed me in my face as well too.

“The ref ain’t do nothing. Every time I’ve seen the referee he’s breaking s*** up. He acted like he ain’t know what was going on.

“Either this motherf***er he was drunk or he was part of it. Which one was it?”

Come on Deontay, it’s time to admit that the better man on the night won.
