Tyson Fury hits back at Deontay Wilder’s brother over glove conspiracy theory

Published

Tyson Fury has hit back at Deontay Wilder‘s brother after he accused him of foul play during the ‘Gypsy King’s stunning win over the heavyweight in February.

Fury stopped Wilder in seven rounds to wrestle the WBC heavyweight world title from his grasp in stunning fashion in Las Vegas.

Since the one sided affair, Wilder and his team have made numerous excuses for the loss, including blaming the 40lb weight of his ringwalk costume.

Conspiracy theorists have also claimed Fury tampered with his gloves so he could inflict more punishment on his foe – claims strongly rejected by Fury and his team. 

Wilder’s brother, Marsellos, who fights in the cruiserweight division, has now made further claims in a long, rambling post on Instagram. 

He wrote: ‘It was discovered by doctors that my brother has a dent in the side of his head due to a blunt object struck against his head from his last fight.

‘No glove or fist was able to cause the damage according to the autopsy.’

After being made aware of the article, which failed to support, his claims with medical evidence, Fury hit back with a video post on social media.’ 

‘This is just a quick video to address all this ‘foul play’ talk from Deontay Wilder and his team.

‘I’ve just read an article saying I might have had some ‘blunt objects’ in my gloves. Yeah, two big 19 stone destroyers in each glove. Getting punched in the temple may do that do you.

‘Unless Deontay Wilder’s own trainer Jay Deas was in on the conspiracy as well along with all the Las Vegas Commission guys who never left the room.

‘Jay Deas was in the room while I had my hands wrapped, he examined them. He was in there when I had my gloves put on, examined them, and everybody else was in the room, they don’t leave you.

‘So everybody citing foul play – bulls***. And the next time I’ll put a dent in his boxing career, end it. It’ll be two knockout losses in a row, bye bye forever.’

Fury and Wilder have agreed to meet in a trilogy fight that was originally scheduled for July but will now take place later this year following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nemanja Matic signs new Manchester United deal to keep him at Old Trafford until 2023

Nemanja Matic has signed a new contract at Manchester United until 2023.

Matic, 31, was due to be a free agent this summer but United triggered the 12-month extension in his current deal in March allowing negotiations to continue.

‘I’m very happy that I will continue to be part of this great club,’ said the Serbia midfielder. ‘As a player, I still have a lot more to give and achieve in my career and to do that with Manchester United will be a huge honour.

‘This is a really exciting team to be part of, we have a good balance of youth and experience within the squad and there is great camaraderie amongst the group. 

‘This is a key part of the season and we are playing well. We will continue to fight to finish the season on a high and make our amazing supporters proud.’

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added: ‘I am delighted that Nemanja has signed a new contract, I know his experience, professionalism and leadership will be invaluable to this young talented group.

‘We have great strength in midfield and Nemanja’s attributes are a key part of that.

‘Nemanja has been here for three seasons now and really understands the values of playing for Manchester United. 

‘He remains hugely ambitious and determined which will be vital as we look to achieve our aims over the coming years.’

Matic has also attracted interest from Italy and Major League Soccer in the US, but always made it clear that his first choice was to stay at Old Trafford.

The former Chelsea player has made 114 appearances since joining his old manager Jose Mourinho at United in a £40million deal in the summer of 2017, scoring a total of four goals.

Matic looked to have fallen out of favour this season with Solskjaer preferring Scott McTominay and Fred for the defensive midfield berths.

But the arrival of Bruno Fernandes and return to fitness of Paul Pogba has altered the dynamic in the team. 

Matic is currently first choice to anchor the midfield and has produced some of his best form of late.

Ed Walker looking forwards with stable star English King and has St Leger and French options with Derby fifth

Published

TRAINER Ed Walker is confident the sky is still the limit for his English King after his star was only fifth in Saturday’s Investec Derby.

And why Walker was disappointed, many other fancied runners also failed to fire.

The Lambourn trainer expects his horse to be competing at the top table for a while yet and has earmarked the St Leger and the Grand Prix de Paris as long-term goals.

But Walker won’t go overboard this season, with big hopes pinned on a four-year-old career.

Walker said: “He’s come out of the race good. It was an unsatisfactory race, from our point of view, but fair play to the winner – he’s obviously a very good, well-bred horse who got loose on the front end and won well on the day.

“I’m very proud of our horse. It was frustrating, because there’s only one Derby and it didn’t go our way, but I’m pleased with the way he ran and excited for the future.

“We were never going to ride him aggressively. I thought Frankie gave him a very good ride, and I have no regrets whatsoever.

“I think if you ran the race 10 times he might come out on top a few times, but it wasn’t to be. He finished faster than any other horse in the race, and hopefully there are big days ahead for him.”

No plans will be made in a rush with the horse set to be given some time to recover, but Walker knows he has a good horse on his hands.

He added: “We’ll let the dust settle and mull over it for a few days,” he added.

“I think an obvious target would be the Grand Prix de Paris, because he’s French-bred and qualifies for the premiums. I wouldn’t rule out the St Leger, but I wouldn’t want to run him on ground any slower than it was at Epsom – rattling quick ground and a nice, even tempo is his gig.

“I don’t think we need to step up in trip, because he’s definitely not a slow horse. The times tell you he finished faster than anything else at Epsom, and he broke a 30-year-old track record when he won at Lingfield.

“We don’t want to overcook it this year – we’re all of the opinion that he’s still a little bit immature and will be an even better horse as a four-year-old, which is exciting.

“I’m 110 per cent not disappointed in the horse at all. I’m disappointed for Bjorn that it didn’t happen on the big day, but we’ve got a proper horse on our hands, which is very exciting.”

Pique makes controversial VAR gesture after Messi goal disallowed as fuming Barcelona hint at Real Madrid favouritism

GERARD PIQUE was caught cheekily mocking VAR with a controversial gesture after Lionel Messi’s disallowed goal against Villarreal.

This comes after bitter rivals Real Madrid were awarded a penalty by VAR over Athletic Bilbao to steer them four points clear of Barca in the race for the title.

Real look on the verge of securing the La Liga title as Sergio Ramos scored his tenth goal of the campaign when he found the net from the spot in the second half.

Barca responded in style at Villarreal thanks to an Antoine Griezmann brace, while Luis Suarez and Ansu Fati were also on target.

But golden boy Messi was denied a chance to get on the scoresheet in the second-half after a VAR review – and Pique seemed to poke fun at the controversial call.

The Spaniard appeared to type on an imaginary keyboard and mocked the hand signal for VAR.

After the final whistle the 33-year-old claimed he did not remember doing it but was said to have flashed a cheeky smile when discussing the matter.

As reported by Marca, he said: “I don’t remember,

“During the game, you do things with the adrenaline… I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Los Blancos had been awarded their penalty after Marcelo was judged by VAR to have been mowed down by Dani Garcia.

As reported by Sport, Garcia hit back at the decision, and said: “I saw I had the situation under control and, through bad luck, I stepped on him. At no moment was it possible that he would get the ball before me. If you give one, you give the other,

“VAR is ruining football.”

Bilbao captain Iker Muniain also waded in and hinted that some clubs get preferential treatment from the technology.

He said: “Raul Garcia’s been stamped on and they haven’t even revised it, that’s the difference,

“We’ve seen the theme in these weeks since the restart, depending on which teams it is, some decisions are given. Everyone can draw their own conclusions.”



VAR has been a hot topic in Spain since the restart of La Liga, – particularly from the Catalan camp as Barca’s two-point lead in the table has evaporated following the shutdown of football, with Los Blancos taking over.

Nou Camp chief Josep Maria Bartomeu suggested on Sunday that the system is stacked in favour of rivals Real.

After Barca’s victory over Villarreal he said: “I watched San Mames match until almost the end of the second half,

“I feel bad because we have the best league in the world and VAR after coronavirus isn’t fair.

“It has changed some results and always favours the same team.”

While an ex-La Liga referee shockingly claimed that 90 per cent of Spanish top-flight referees are “fans” of Zinedine Zidane’s side.
