Deontay Wilder’s coach Jay Deas insists, Wilder fought Tyson Fury with an injured arm.
The two heavyweights face each other in December 2018 and it ended with a controversial draw.
“The last time he fought against Tyson Fury, Deontay had an arm injury,” Deas told World Boxing News.
“Even though it was healed by fight time, the timing on it was still off. Deontay was also very light and wasn’t eating as much as he should. This time he’s very healthy and firing on all cylinders. Things are good. The sparring is going well and we are looking forward to the fight.”
Wilder and Fury set to face each other again on February 22 in Las Vegas.
