Of course DBN and Boxingego are trying to validate this as much as they can

Excuses so far:
  1. His costume tired his legs out
  2. Someone drugged him
  3. Fury tampered with his gloves
  4. Fury didn't have his hand fully in the glove
  5. His trainer betrayed him
  6. Referee took too long to count

His better excuse was the costume, these other conspiracy theories shit is just sad. No doubt he believes in all that crazy shit, his ego is fucking him, and will destroy the poor guy.

It baffles me how many people buy into the glove excuse. If you've ever put on fight gloves, there is absolutely no room for your hand to move. There is also no padding under the wrist, I used to "smack" with my hook in the amateurs for that very reason

Also the gloves are decided before the fight and checked the day off the fight.

The handwraps are observed by the opposing team and observed, checked and signed by the officials.

You are also followed and filmed pretty much everywhere at top level boxing these days.


It would be really difficult to tamper with the gloves, and pretty much impossible to have an egg weight in them. This isn't a popeye cartoon.

I feel really bad for Breland. I used to trash the guy. Turns out Wilder was the one I should have been trashing.

Just when you think he can't get more ridiculous he comes up with another excuse ever more bizarre than the last one. I'm guessing the Gypsy King has retractable claws like Wolverine, lol.

Tyson was found to be on roids a few years ago and was a heavy drug user. No surprise if he took drugs again against his most dangerous opponent.

His gloves looked funny in the rematch and in that 1st round knockout he got before the rematch. Team Fury also covered a camera in the dressing room before the fight.

I don't think we should be so dismissive when Tyson Fury failed a test for nandrolone a few years ago.

Peds are rife in boxing though, and tricky to catch. So it wouldn't be surprising if a boxer cheated that way and got away with it.


Having an egg weight in his glove. Tampering with the glove. Breland being bought off. Bayliss being drunk and bought off.

Those are much less plausible and harder to hide. Covering a camera wouldn't be sufficient.

The gloves are agreed in a meeting before the fight and checked on the night. The ref should also check them. The hand wrapping is observed by Wilder's team and the official, who also signs them.

At big fights the fighter is also never really alone. The drugs team follow them everywhere, as do the TV crew, and officials. Really hard to tamper with gloves in a big fight now.


Then there is the heavy costume, and Wilder claiming he was just making a comeback when it was stopped.

He's a liar or he's delusional.

Wilder fought like garbage in the first foight, and he fought like garbage in the second fight.

Even if Tyson was on something, to make him a little bit more aggressive (and I don't doubt that's possible) it wouldn't change the fact that Wilder looked clueless both times.

The gloves are checked before and after the fight, along with a member from the opposing side there to witness. If you've ever put a fight glove on, you'd know there's no room for extra shit in there
