Tyson Fury and judges

 

Tyson Fury is happy no British judge will be involved in his clash with Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.

American referee Kenny Bayless will take charge of the fight while the judges are also from the US and they are Glen Feldman, Steve Weisfeld and Dave Moretti.

 

Welshman Phil Edwards scored the first fight between the pair as a draw despite many observers believing Fury won.

Mexican Alejandro Rochin scored the December 2018 fight 115-111 in Wilder’s favour while Canadian Robert Tapper gave it to Fury on a card of 114-112.

The Gypsy King said: “Whichever judges get selected that’s it, I’m fine with that.

“No British judges? Fantastic.

“It was the British judge who went against me last time.

“The Las Vegas commission (Nevada State Athletic Commission) will pick experienced guys.”

Wilder just wants the officials to be experienced to ensure there is no controversy this time.

He said: “ I just hope they put the right people in with the right credentials.
