Small chatter began in the week following Fury’s amazing win over Wilder on February 22nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Since then, the snowball-effect has hit the rumors. Even former world champions Charles Martin and Steve Cunningham have got involved.

The claims initially go back to the first fight. They seem to accuse Fury of not putting his hands all the way inside his gloves. Therefore, hitting Wilder with the wrist part of the glove and causing more damage.
