Deontay Wilder blames Tyson Fury defeat on ring walk COSTUME as he triggers rematch clause.

  • Deontay Wilder lost his WBC heavyweight title to Tyson Fury on Saturday night
  • American was outclassed with his team throwing in the towel in round seven
  • He claims his 45-pound ring walk outfit played a significant role in the defeat
  • The former champion has also activated his rematch clause for a summer trilogy 

Deontay Wilder has laughably claimed the weight of his ring walk costume played a big role in his defeat by Tyson Fury – as he confirmed he will be triggering his rematch clause.

The American wore a black and red armoured body suit with a matching mask and crown as he made his way to the squared circle for his second bout with Fury at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Anthony Joshua v Tyson Fury: We will make fight happen, says Frank Warren

Anthony Joshua v Tyson Fury: We will make fight happen, says Frank Warren –

Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren says if fans want to see a unification fight with Anthony Joshua “we will make it happen”.

The British heavyweights now hold all of the division’s belts between them, after Fury, 31, beat Deontay Wilder, 34, on Sunday to claim the WBC title.

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said on Monday that “this fight will happen”.

“Of course we want to see the fight,” Warren told BBC Sport. “We’ve been trying to make it for two years.”

“Hearn kept saying was it’s got to be 70/30 [the purse] in favour of AJ and so on and so fourth.

“The tables have turned now. I have no problem with 50/50. I think Tyson would deserve more but 50/50, no problem.

“This is about the boxers and more importantly the fans. If they want to see the fight we will make it happen.

“In the meantime Eddie Hearn is acting like the guy standing outside your house with his nose pressed up against the window and keeps spouting off about Tyson.”

Tyson Fury stops Deontay Wilder in magnificent performance in Las Vegas

Tyson Fury stops Deontay Wilder in magnificent performance in Las Vegas

Fury knocked out the most feared puncher in the division (Picture: Getty)Tyson Fury is the new WBC champion after a stunning performance against Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.Wilder peeled himself off the canvas twice before Fury eventually stopped his rival in the seventh round.Fury had promised to go after his opponent after a draw in their first fight 14 months ago and the British heavyweight made good on his promise.

Almost no one except Fury’s team predicted he would be the aggressor, but the unified champion was all over the Bronze Bomber from the first bell.It was Wilder who landed first, with two hard shots in quick succession, but Fury responded and every shot the Gypsy King threw drew a massive roar from the partisan MGM Grand Arena crowd.

Fury dominated Wilder – The ferocious pace continued into the second round with Fury doing the best work, backing Wilder up onto the ropes with several blows in the final seconds.And then came an incredible third round as Fury floored Wilder for the first time in 15 rounds of action between the heavyweights.Wilder hit the deck after eating a sharp left hook, but was quickly back up. Fury had his arms in the air when Wilder went down a second time, but that was ruled a slip and gave the wounded champion some extra time to recover.

Wilder was repeatedly knocked down – Fury dominated the fourth round and turned to smirk at his corner when Wilder slipped again, and the crowd could feel a knockout was coming.There was blood pouring from the ear drum of Wilder and Fury finally put him down again in the fifth.

The Brit tried to finish Wilder off there and then, but the American was given time to breath when referee Kenny Bayless stepped in to deduct Fury a point for holding.[metro-zone-post-strip]Just as Fury thought he had control of the fight, Wilder reminded him of his power in the sixth but it was only a brief warning, as the defending champion’s equilibrium was clearly shot after receiving such heavy blows.After dominating every round, Fury was crowned the WBC champion in the seventh when Wilder’s corner threw in the towel.
