Tyson Fury's Cutman Responds To Glove Tampering Conspiracy Theory

Tyson Fury's Cutman Responds To Glove Tampering Conspiracy Theory

Tyson Fury's cutman has shut down conspiracy theories claiming the WBC Heavyweight Champion's gloves were tampered with before his defeat over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.

Jacob 'Stitch' Duran has since been questioned about the 'tampered gloves' conspiracy and had this to say about the idea to Boxing Social.

He explained: "I'll give you the facts, the Nevada State Athletic Commission is one of the best commission in the world. They handle the gloves until it's time to put them on. There was no tampering whatsoever. I was there. It's just a big myth.

"It didn't happen. That's why you have the inspectors there to make sure everything is followed within the guidelines. None of that happened, but it's good for discussion.

"It's going to fade away. It's not even true, it's not even close to being true."

One prominent theory circulated online is that Fury's gloves were tampered with, allowing him to punch where there was no cushioning.

The video below has garnered nearly a million views on YouTube, as it appears to shows unnatural movement from Fury's fists in the fight, making them look like they're 'flapping'.

Boxer Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has also laughed off the theories telling Boxing Social: "I think he used an illegal glove... not! Dunno really, bit weird.

"But if you've got your hand halfway in a glove, what benefit is that actually going to give you? You're not going to punch them with the front bit."

It was then put to Hearn that there is less padding lower down to which he responded: "But only if you hit someone there, he's actually wafting the glove. I have no idea. It's up there with the suit, the heavy suit. I think you should ask Tyson Fury."

Anything to add, Tyson?
