Deontay Wilder has revealed he believes Tyson Fury will look to ‘cheat’ as the pair prepare to fight for a third time at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this weekend.

It is not the first time the Bronze Bomber has accused his rival of ‘cheating’, after the American accused Fury of tampering with his gloves and fighting with his fists in an ‘improper position’ during their second bout last February.

Wilder’s accusations did not stop there, as his claims continued in November of last year when he suggested Fury had an ‘egg-weight size object’ inside of his gloves to aid his performance in their bout.

Fury was the man who emerged victorious in the duo’s last meeting, as a seventh-round technical knockout from the Manchester-born fighter saw him cap off one of the greatest British heavyweight performances overseas.

As the pair now head into their third fight this weekend, Wilder believes Fury has already arranged a ‘masterplan’ to claim victory once more.

Wilder said: “You think he ain’t gonna try to cheat this time? Oh they’re thinking, they’re coming up with a masterplan. My thing to him – man, you couldn’t even get me out on loaded gloves and the conditions I was under. You couldn’t knock me out, you didn’t knock me out.”

It seems the American’s accusations of cheating from his opponent are also being used to psych him up for their trilogy bout, as a video of Wilder in training showed him calling Fury a cheat during his session.

Wilder was seen saying: “I only gotta do half of that, he ain’t good. I only gotta do half of that, he ain’t what people think. He a f***ing cheater,” while going through his demanding training routine.

Later on in the clip the 35-year-old sat down for an interview, and in it spoke of how the positivity within his team will ensure he secures victory come the early hours of Sunday morning.

He added: “I feel great, I have a great team. Everybody’s just on one accord, we have a team that’s on one accord.The instructions are coming even clearer.

“How can you go wrong when you have so many guys on the same page? You’re looking for perfection. You’ll never be perfect, but that doesn’t mean you can’t practice it.

“We’re practicing to make perfect, so when I get in the ring there won’t be no questions asked. I won’t be going back to old habits, it’ll be right off of what we’ve been working on in this camp. In the end, my hand will be raised high in the sky because I knocked him out.”

Wilder’s emphasis on having his team all on the same page could well have been a jibe at former trainer Mark Breland, who Wilder criticised and eventually sacked after he was the man to throw the towel in from the American’s corner during his last bout with Fury.

As well as blaming his former coach and accusing Fury of cheating, Wilder also said another key reason for his defeat on home soil in their last meeting was down to the ‘heavy’ outfit he wore when walking into the ring.
