Hours before his fight with Tyson Fury this night, Deontay Wilder has again raised concerns about his opponent’s gloves.

Wilder questioned Fury’s gloves when The Gypsy King beat him in February 2020.

He is again adamant that he will be at a disadvantage again.

Wilder has expressed his feelings of discontent about the horse hair that is used as padding inside Fury’s gloves.

Nevada State Athletic Commission (NASC) officials already confirmed that Fury’s gloves are permitted to be used.

Both Wilder and Fury have been given four sets of gloves for the fight, but NASC officials cut open one glove from each set in order to check the padding.

Wilder stated that he will switch to a pair of Everlast MX gloves so that he is on a ‘fair playing ground.’

Wilder told 78SportsTV: ‘We had a little situation with the gloves.

‘I already got word of some funny stuff going on in the back of the gloves.

‘When I got into the room I immediately asked about the gloves and was telling them about certain things that happened in the first event with his gloves being funny, how they were bending and folding, even showing certain clips of it.

‘They [NASC officials] said they’ve been around boxing 25, 30 years, everybody feels since they’ve been around it they are some type of expert.’

Wilder questioned the decision that the officials made due to their lack of boxing experience.

He continued: ‘But if you haven’t put a glove on and hit someone in the face to understand what type of damage it could do, or how mechanically a glove can work, it’s 25, 30 years down the toilet.

‘You can cut open a glove all day and look inside and still not know what’s going on.’
