DEONTAY WILDER has made yet another bizarre excuse for his loss to Tyson Fury, claiming that the Gypsy King's gloves were tampered with.
The Bronze Bomber lost his WBC heavyweight crown back in February, after being dominated by Fury in Las Vegas.
But the one-sided nature of the fight hasn't quelled a stream of excuses that have flowed ever since.
And this time, Wilder, 35, has claimed that dodgy gloves allowed Fury to cut his ears with his fingernails – despite zero evidence.
He told the Last Stand Podcast: "I haven't yet heard valid proof of how gloves flap all the way back, why your hands were in the middle of the glove, why did my ear have scratches deep inside my ear? Because of your (Fury's) nails.
"It's so many different facts and proof that we have. But it just shows the greatness of it.
"I saw in the first fight when Ricky Hatton was pulling down your gloves to put your hand in the improper position.
"Y'all tried the same method the second time, but this time, you scratched flesh out of my ears, which caused my ears to bleed.
"I highly believe you put something hard in your glove. Something the size and the shape of an egg weight. It's the reason why the side of my face swelled up in an egg-weight form and it left a dent in my face as well.
"But in the midst of it all, you still couldn't keep this king down. You would have had to kill me. In the end, it took a crab-in-the-bucket referee and a disloyal trainer to throw the towel in just to stop me."
The 'disloyal trainer' Wilder speaks of is Mark Breland, who he officially axed last month.
And Brit heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte was one of many that slammed the decision.
He told Sky Sports: "This guy (Wilder) is just a disgrace. I don't think we'll see him in the ring ever again.
"He's a coward and a disgrace.
"I think the behaviour he's shown and the way he's acting and blaming everyone apart from himself, and getting rid of the only person who knows anything about boxing – it's weird."
The mooted trilogy bout between Fury and Wilder is currently up in the air, with the Brit claiming he's 'moved on', but the Bronze Bomber's team adamant that he is owed a third crack.
