The promoter for WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury – Frank Warren, has trashed the glove-gate claims from the February rematch with Deontay Wilder.
Fury drop Wilder twice and stop him in the seventh round, making one of the easiest title fights in last couple of years.
Warren believes the conspiracy theories are just a nonsense.
“Have you ever heard such nonsense in your life? First of all the boxers wrap their hands on an agreed amount of bandage and tape between the two camps. When they wrap their hands the people who are there are obviously Tyson’s camp, his trainer and the guy who is wrapping his hands. You’ve got someone from local from the commission,” Warren told BT Sport.
“In the background you’ve got the drug testing guys who are with you all the time plus there is someone from the other camp watching and inspecting to make sure they are happy with the way the hands are wrapped. That’s why someone from Tyson’s camp was in Wilder’s dressing room. Then they warm up. When it comes to putting the gloves on they put the gloves on, the commissioner signs the gloves on the tape and in the case of the last fight there was someone from the camp there.
“So once those hands are in that glove how on earth can you move your hand? It’s impossible. It’s stupid. I don’t know what planet they are on to come up with stuff like that. I’ve seen the footage and all it is is an open glove. It’s just pathetic. The best man won on the night end of story. No excuses, nothing about costumes or whatever else. On the night the best man won.”
