Tyson Fury’s former trainer Ben Davison has hit out at suggestions that the Gypsy King tampered with his gloves during his victory over Deontay Wilder.
Fans of Wilder on social media have questioned whether Fury’s hands were fully inside his gloves for the rematch in Las Vegas.
Videos which have circulated on social media show Fury’s gloves flapping as they connect with Wilder’s face during both of their fights.
But Davison, who was in Fury’s corner for the first bout in December 2018, is adamant that no rules were broken.
‘Look, there’s a commissioner [from the Nevada Athletic Commission] there, there’s nothing in the gloves, it’s ridiculous,’ Davison told iFL TV.
‘Something came out about the sparring as well, it’s absolute nonsense.
‘You’ve got a commissioner with you 24/7. Even in the lay I couldn’t give Tyson an electrolytes powder thing before his fight because they said it’s got to be sealed, it was sealed, there were arguments with the commission about that.
‘They’re on everything 24/7.
‘The opposite team are watching him tie his gloves. How can he tie his gloves, get it taped up, pull his hand back out, put it in the middle [of the glove] and redo it? It’s madness.
‘It’s the way Tyson throws shots because he throws what are called throwaway shots, so sometimes he’ll throw a punch at you that he’s not intending to hit you with or intending do damage with to make you look here or think about this.
‘Sometimes he may throw with an open hand, flick it out to make you think about this, occupy you with something to hit you somewhere else.
‘That’s what you’re looking at, he’s flicking something out… there’s nothing in the glove situation, believe me.
‘Best of all, they are all different makes of gloves. One says it was with the Everlast gloves, then it was about the Paffen Sport gloves, then I’ve seen videos of the [Wladimir] Klitschko gloves which are a different style of Paffen Sport gloves. It’s nonsense isn’t it, there’s always something isn’t it.
‘You’re going to get it, he’s on top of the world, so people always want something to say.’
