Deontay Wilder Says This Is The Reason He Lost Fight Against Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder v Luis Ortiz

One of the biggest rematches in boxing went down this past weekend between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury. While Tyson Fury came out on top, Deontay wilder reportedly isn't done yet and is already seaking another rematch with the British boxer.

In a new interview with Yahoo Sports Deontay has come out blaming the huge 40 pound costume he wore into the arena for his loss stating it wore out his legs:

“He didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is, Kevin, that my uniform was way too heavy for me, I didn’t have no legs from the beginning of the fight. In the third round, my legs were just shot all the way through. But I’m a warrior and people know that I’m a warrior. It could easily be told that I didn’t have legs or anything. A lot of people were telling me, It looked like something was wrong with you. Something was, but when you’re in the ring, you have to bluff a lot of things. I tried my best to do so. I knew I didn’t have the legs because of my uniform. I was only able to put it on the night before but I didn’t think it was going to be that heavy. It weighed 40, 40-some pounds with the helmet and all the batteries. I wanted my tribute to be great for Black History Month. I wanted it to be good and I guess I put that before anything."

Do you think the suit is to blame for his loss?
