Deontay Wilder says ring-walk costume cost him victory in Tyson Fury rematch
Deontay Wilder has blamed his costume that he wore during his ring-walk because of his defeat morning.
The American entered the ring in Las Vegas wearing.
He moved on to be halted in the seventh round from Fury after the towel was thrown in by assistant trainer Mark Breland.
Wilder shot at the fifth and was knocked down with a hand that was perfect from Fury from the next round.
The 34-year-old appeared to fight with his equilibrium and also fell another 2 times.
Talking to Yahoo Sports at the wake of losing his WBC name, Wilder said:”He didn’t hurt me at all, however, the simple reality is that my uniform was far too heavy for me.
“I didn’t haven’t any legs from the beginning of the fight. In the third round, my thighs were shot at all the way through.
“Lots of folks were telling me’It looked like something was wrong with you.’ Something was, but you have to bluff a lot of things, when you are in the ring.
“I tried my very best to do so. I knew I did not have the legs because of my uniform. I was just able to put it (for the very first time) the night before but I did not believe it was likely to be heavy.
“It weighed 40, 40-some pounds using the helmet and all the batteries. I desired my own tribute. I wanted it to be good and I suppose I put before anything”
