Eddie Hearn has labelled Deontay Wilder ‘ridiculous’ after the former heavyweight champion claimed Tyson Fury cheated in both of their bouts in a sensational video.
The Bronze Bomber, 35, uploaded a two-minute video to social media on Saturday night, laying out accusations that Fury had his gloves adjusted for their fights in 2018 and February of this year.
Wilder also claimed that Fury had an ‘egg weights’ in his glove, giving the Gypsy King an unfair advantage that affected the outcome of the fight.

Fury and his team have always strenuously denied any cheating accusations, and Wilder has received criticism for his recent comments.
And Hearn, who promotes heavyweight king Anthony Joshua, has said ‘it’s getting worse and worse’ for the former WBC heavyweight champion.
‘It’s ridiculous. Listen, park him to the side, let the big boys, the real men go at it,’ he told iFL TV. ‘Unless you’ve got any real substance then be quiet, go back to the drawing board, work harder, let the hunger burn to become champion again.
‘It’s gone from the costume, to now he’s been found out about AJ, to now something about the gloves. It’s getting worse and worse.’
The Matchroom Boxing chief has also delighted in Wilder seemingly admitting that he was offered to fight Joshua for the unified heavyweight championship, having previously insisted that AJ was ‘ducking him’.
In urging Fury to accept a trilogy bout, Wilder tweeted: ‘When that fight was a draw, I told you that I would give you a rematch.
‘You know I was offered more money to fight Joshua than I was getting to fight you. Again being a man of my word, I fought you like I said I would.’
Hearn responded to the tweet, asking: ‘I thought AJ ducked you?’
‘[We got] loads of criticism and it hurt because I knew how much we wanted to make that fight and I knew they were playing games,’ Hearn told the YouTube channel.
‘AJ has always pushed me to make the undisputed fight and you’ve just seen it unfold in one tweet. To be quite honest it’s sweet as a nut.’
