Tyson Fury and his trainer SugarHill Steward have mocked the glove conspiracy theories that surfaced after he beat Deontay Wilder earlier this year.
Fury knocked out Wilder in seven rounds to win the WBC heavyweight title in February.
But following Fury’s victory, Wilder supporters accused the Gypsy King of having a blunt object inside his gloves during the fight.
Wilder’s brother, Marsellos, who fights at cruiserweight, also insinuated that there was foul play from Fury.
‘It was discovered by doctors that my brother has a dent in the side of his head due to a blunt object struck against his head from his last fight,’ he posted on Instagram.
‘No glove or fist was able to cause the damage according to the autopsy.’
But Fury and his trainer SugarHill have hit back at those claims after beginning their training camp in Morcambe.
On one wall of Fury’s new gym is a mural of his punch on Wilder during their rematch in Las Vegas.
SugarHill walked up to the picture of Fury and Wilder and said: ‘This is the right hand that changed the world, I’ll get right up close to the pillow fists.’
Fury then said: ‘Just check there’s nothing in those gloves, will you.’
SugarHill then replied: ‘I don’t feel nothing. But the autopsy has said there was a metal object in the gloves. That’s what I heard.’
Fury is due to face Wilder in a third fight this year, however, a date has not ye been announced.
