Eddie Hearn has told talkSPORT he believes Deontay Wilder has ‘lost the plot’ and ‘might be unwell’ after the American’s stunning claims of a conspiracy behind his defeat to Tyson Fury.

The Bronze Bomber broke his long silence over the weekend with a sensational video on social media, as he fumed about losing his titles to the Gypsy King back in February.

Wilder accused Fury of tampering with his gloves ahead of the fight and claimed his water was spiked, and also threw a bizarre accusation at his own trainer for being part of the ‘plot’ to dethrone him.

Deontay Wilder has not taken losing his heavyweight title to Tyson Fury very well…

He followed up his incredible video statement with further outbursts, telling Fury to make ‘funeral arrangements’ and adding that he’ll ‘spit on his tombstone’.

It’s the latest eruption from the American, who has kept quiet for months but immediately after the fight reeled off plenty of excuses for his defeat to Fury – including that his costume for his long ring walk was too heavy and caused him to fatigue.

But these latest sensational sabotage claims – dismissed as ‘absolute garbage’ by Fury’s promoter Frank Warren – has led Hearn to declare him ‘delusional’.

The Matchroom Sport chief said on Tuesday’s talkSPORT Breakfast: “He has a great trainer in his corner called Mark Breland, who is one of my favourite old fighters actually, and he basically hung him out to dry and sacked him.

“He’s the one who threw the towel in, he could have saved his career and even his life, who knows.

“He then accused him spiking his drink in his corner!

“I listened to an interview with him last night and he’s like, ‘the truth with come out, this is going to court and I’ve got the evidence’.

“And I’m thinking, ‘I actually think you’ve lost the plot… I actually think you might be unwell’.

“It’s that much delusion of the situation.

“You see great champions, it’s only like AJ when he lost to Andy Ruiz, he took it on the chin and shook the guy’s hand in the ring afterwards.

“He actually got criticised for doing that. ‘Oh he didn’t look as bothered’, no, he just took it on the chin! Every day after that it was in his head, he was working towards getting his titles back.

“Dillian Whyte got knocked down by Povetkin and got up, shook his hand, congratulations, walked out of the ring, get me the rematch.

“But this guy… if you get beat, it’s because you weren’t good enough!

“It’s ok, you lean you improve, and you go again. You have to be willing to accept that, understand what happened, regroup, clear the mind and go again.

“That’s what Deontay Wilder is just miles off the pace with.”
