However, Wilder has made an exception to the movement and focus of the Brit on gaining strength and weight.
“Many of the things he does make me feel like he is making an excuse for when he loses,” Wilder said ThaBoxingVoice.
“The weight thing – I don’t want to hear about being out of shape or,” He didn’t have enough time to get in shape.
“All these trainers in the neighborhood – I don’t want to hear when I knock him out that:” If he had Ben it would have been better. “

“I don’t want to hear any excuses. I already have the feeling that all these things that happen are being apologized. We will see what happens. ”
In the first fight, Fury was dropped twice against the Bronze Bomber, but still hoped he had done enough on points to win the game.
Victory for Fury was denied by first-rate judges who scored a draw, and Wilder believes that the change in coaching team will do little to help Fury’s chances in their upcoming rematch where Wilder’s WBC title is at stake.
“Not me,” he added. “It looks like the Dominic Breazeale camp when they added Virgil [Hunter].
“If you have bad habits, it’s hard to correct this. Sometimes it takes years to correct bad habits.
“And it will take even longer if you are not used to it, if you have not worked with that person.”
