Deontay Wilder claims he has inside information on Tyson Fury’s training camp issues

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder says he knows Tyson Fury’s training camp hasn’t gone to plan, ahead of their title fight in Los Angeles next weekend.

Wilder will look to defend both his title and 40-0 record on December 1 when the also undefeated Fury makes the trip across the Atlantic, aiming to become world champion for the second time in his career.

However, the ‘Bronze Bomber’ claims his opponent has already had plenty of issues throughout his preparation, saying: “I know everything that’s going on in Fury’s camp. This is my country and I have eyes and ears everywhere.

“I know he is showing signs of nervous strain and his situation is not helped by his father not being here.

“He is more comfortable having family around him and he’s already parted from his uncle Peter as his trainer.”

The 33-year-old comes into the fight as the 8/13, with the challenging Gypsy King being the outsider at 13/10, having had just two warm-up fights since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 before going off the rails.

He has since been training in Freddie Roach’s Wild Card gym in Hollywood after relocating from a high altitude base, with Wilder believing this is another sign of weakness from his opponent.

“These are indications of anxiety,” added Wilder. “Maybe he couldn’t handle the reduced oxygen levels at altitude but I see this in all my opponents.

“They know how hard they are going to be hit and I sense their fear. It is a peculiar sensation.

“By making these changes he will have no benefits of training up high. Taking on new trainers at the last moment, even one like Freddie, cannot help either.”
