Deontay Wilder was set to face off against Britain’s WBC champion Tyson Fury for the WBC World Heavyweight Championship in Las Vegas on July 24. Ahead of their boxing match, they had a press conference where they could not stop staring at each other. However, that was cancelled after Tyson Fury tested positive for COVID-19. Tyson Fury also leaked bad news related to Wilder’s health previously.
Joe Rogan spoke on Joe Rogan Experience, where he talked about Deontay Wilder’s claim that he lost his second encounter with Tyson Fury because of his walkout costume.
“The idea that Deontay Wilder, with a 40-pound outfit on, that it killed his legs walking to the ring, that’s crazy talk. I don’t understand why he would say that. I mean, maybe it’s true… It’s possible. It might have wore him out.
The real big thing happened in the third round when Tyson Fury… he put that jab in his face and hit him with a beautiful overhand right right on the ear and dropped him… he was bleeding out of his ear, so that’s a significant injury. It could be a ruptured eardrum. When you get hit on the ear like that like a lot of times, your eardrum ruptures, happens all the time and when that happens you don’t know how to stand up right. Your body is all wacky, it’s not moving correctly and that’s what it looked like with him.”
