But Wilder’s younger brother Marsellos took to social media saying Deontay had suffered injuries “no glove or fist was able to cause”.BT Sport released footage of Fury having his hands wrapped before the fight at the MGM Grand, but wasn’t enough to clear him.He has now been cleared by the World Boxing Council and the Nevada state Athletic Commission are unlikely to act.WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman has come out and told Sky Sports that any theory of Fury cheating would be dismissed.“It’s ridiculous. It’s difficult to understand,” he told Sky Sports. “I was present in both fights, I was in the dressing room, in both fights. Both Wilder and Fury dressing room.“One was in California, the other one was in Nevada. In both cases, there were at least three inspectors in each dressing room.“I was there before and after the fight. And I saw the hand wraps, I saw them with the gloves. I was in the ring when they came into the ring, and I was sitting right there during the fight.“At no moment, in either fight, I saw anything that would look suspicious whatsoever. After the fight, they take off the gloves, they are handed to the commission.”He went on to criticise those who want to take the shine off what he called a “huge victory”. “It’s very sad,” Sulaiman added. “To try and take away something from a huge victory, one of the greatest nights of the sport in the century, to try and put a blemish on that event, is so irresponsible and so stupid.“It should not be given any consideration.”—Tags: Deontay WilderGypsy KingMarsellosTyson Furylast_img
