The Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury Trilogy was a few weeks ago, but a new controversy has just arisen. Just like in their second fight, new evidence has people thinking that Tyson Fury cheated again, except this time it has nothing to do with his gloves.
Why Did Tyson Fury Get Steroid Injections Before Trilogy Fight with Deontay Wilder?
In a new interview Tyson Fury’s dad revealed there was a serious issue with his elbows before the fight that required medical attention. It’s alleged that Tyson Fury was having unbearable pain in his elbows when trying to throw jabs, which led to doctors giving him a cortisone injection right before the Trilogy fight. The problem people have with this revelation is that cortisone is a steroid, and as we all know in the past Tyson Fury was caught using steroids to get a competitive advantage.
John Fury claims that the injections and elbow issue actually put Tyson Fury at a disadvantage. However, judging from how the fight went it seems like his elbows were completely fine due to the steroid injection. Some fans are skeptical about if those alleged cortisone injections Tyson Fury got were really another type of steroid that gave him some extra punching power.
Take a listen to John Fury’s interview about the Tyson Fury elbow steroid injections cheating scandal before the Trilogy Fight with Deontay Wilder. He claims Tyson Fury underwent a 6 hour operation to have bone spurs removed after the fight.
Tyson Fury had Bandages on His Elbow Before the Fight
Before the Trilogy match there was photo that showed Tyson Fury had bandages on his elbow, which confirmed that he did have something injected in them. Given his past history of cheating and drug use, it’s tough for some people to believe that only cortisone steroids were used in his arm.
Tyson Fury knocked out Deontay Wilder in the 11th round of their trilogy fight in brutal fashion, after a series of powerful blows that had Wilder unable to defend himself. For someone that allegedly had elbow issues Tyson Fury seemed to have more punching power than ever before.
It’s tough to say Tyson Fury’s steroid injections were a form of cheating, but the situation definitely looks sketchy. It’s not often you hear about boxers getting injections right before a match when they can’t be drug tested to see what was actually put in their body.
Nevertheless Tyson Fury is innocent until definitely proven guilty, unless you believe cortisone injections give a competitive advantage.
It should be noted that Deontay Wilder’s team thought there was something off about Tyson Fury’s gloves during the glove check for their Trilogy match as well. The steroid accusations are actually the second alleged cheating incident in relation to their third fight.
