Tyson Fury has jokingly claimed his dad’s outlandish ‘conspiracy theory’ about his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder potentially being fixed could be true.
Dotting dad John expressed concerns for Tyson’s undefeated record after an American judge ordered his son to face Wilder for a third time.
He told BT Sport: “The danger point is getting fair play out there.
“Because at the minute, the American boxing fraternity has been embarrassed by the last escapade.
“Why wouldn’t you take a $20million step aside without fighting and a guaranteed shot at the winner when you’re fighting for a lot less money than $20m and you’re risking getting your skull caved in again?
“It don’t make sense on his part. So obviously, the powers that be in America are involved, aren’t they?
“And they’re calling the shots and they’ve sort of trapped both men, haven’t they?
“They’ve trapped them both, in my opinion.”
