Deontay Wilder compared to DONALD TRUMP after he 'didn't make any sense' in Tyson Fury loss excuses, says Bob Arum
BOB ARUM compared Deontay Wilder to Donald Trump for his list of his list of excuses as to why he lost to Tyson Fury.
The Gypsy King's co-promoter blasted the Bronze Bomber for emulating the former American president with a series of lies.
Brit champ Fury inflicted Wilder's first professional defeat when they clashed in the ring for the second time last February, following their initial bout ending in a draw.
But the one-sided nature of the fight hasn't quelled a stream of excuses that have flowed ever since.
Among the reasons Wilder has blamed for his defeat have been his heavy ring-walk outfit and allegations that his drinking water had been spiked.
The Bronze Bomber also claimed that dodgy gloves allowed Fury to cut his ears with his fingernails – despite zero evidence.
Deontay Wilder has been spoiled by our former president Donald Trump who says you can say any lie, or any preposterous thing and maybe some people believe it
And Arum claimed he is buying none of Wilder's excuses.
He told talkSPORT: "Deontay Wilder has been spoiled by our former president Donald Trump who says you can say any lie, or any preposterous thing and maybe some people believe it.
"In Trump's case, they believed it and stormed the capital. Deontay Wilder, again, irresponsible what he's saying, totally.
"Whether it's about Tyson Fury, Mark Breland – a tremendous guy – Deontay Wilder is not making any sense.

"But hey, if the former president who served for four years doesn't make sense, I mean Deontay Wilder is just another Trumpian."
Arum claimed last month that Fury will never fight Wilder again after his list of excuses for why he lost his WBC crown.
In an exclusive interview with SunSport, the 89-year-old claimed the Gypsy King's all-British showdown against Anthony Joshua is the biggest heavyweight fight since Muhammad Ali versus Joe Frazier.
