Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury starred in one of the most outstanding boxing fights of the whole year. At the MGM Grand a Las Vegas, an already mythical site for current boxing, the British fighter of 31 years (31-1-0, 30 KO) prevailed by the-seventh round technical napcath and snatched the American from 34 years (42-1-1, 41 KO) his World Boxing Council (WBC) belt in February.
Weeks later, the American activated the clause for a rematch to be held in late 2020. Since then both wrestlers have starred in several verbal crosses in different interviews and social media posts, but such an accusation had never been heard as the one sketched by Marsellos Wilder.
The fighter's brother posted a video accusing Fury of something unpublished: "Doctors found that my brother has a dent in the side of his head. This is due to a blunt object hit against his head since his last fight. No glove or fist could have caused the damage."
Marsellos accused the current champion and his team of doing anything to beat his brother and thus regain the champion titles. He also anticipated that Wilder will take him down in the rematch: "My dad once told me that if you shoot someone, you'd better kill him. Because if you don't, they'll come back and kill you. The king is about to rise again. We're here for blood."

This was a surprise to the boxing environment as the match in February complied with all the usual protocols that prevent fighters from making some kind of trap, such as hiding blunt objects in the gloves. That's why Fury responded immediately.
"I just read an article that said I might have had some blunt objects on my gloves, yes, two great destroyers", he said in reference to his fists. In addition, The Gypsy King remembered that by the time the rival coach, Jay Deas, was placed, he was present so he and the officers of the Las Vegas State Commission should have been part of the conspiracy.
Angered at the accusations and as he prepares for the third chapter of this story, Fury was blunt: "Next time, I'm going to make a dent in his boxing career, finish it, because it will be two consecutive defeats. Goodbye forever."
