Former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is making some serious accusations against Tyson Fury.

In a video posted on social media, Wilder accused Fury of illegally loading his gloves for their rematch in February and claims the gloves created “a dent” in his head and caused his ear to bleed.

In the first Ricky Hatton was pulling down your gloves to put them in the improper position. Ya’ll tried the method the second time, but this time you scratched flesh out of my ear which caused my ear to bleed. It’s impossible for a 10 ounce glove to keep a smushed-in form or to have loose space. I have to believe that you put something hard 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,”

Wilder was angry Fury decided to move on from a third fight against him and will instead fight in December in a tune-up fight before attempting to take on Anthony Joshua next year.

Back in July, Fury responded to Wilder’s team conspiracy theory over “loaded gloves”

“This is just a quick video to address all this foul play talk from Wilder and his team. I’ve just read an article before saying that I might’ve had some blunt objects in my gloves, yeah, two big 19 stone 7, 275lbs destroyers in each glove.

So yeah, getting punched up the temple may do that to ya. Not unless Wilder’s one trainer Jay Deas was in on the conspiracy as well, along with the Las Vegas State Commission guys who never left the room.”

“Jay Deas was in the room when I had my hands wrapped, he examined them, he was in there when I had my gloves put on, examined them and everyone else was in the room.
