Heavyweight contender Derek Chisora revealed that he reached out to former champion Deontay Wilder in the aftermath of Deontay's wild claims earlier this week.

Wilder took to social media on Saturday night, where he posted a video with several controversial statements.

He claimed Tyson Fury loaded his gloves with an "egg weight" for their February rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Fury stopped Wilder in seven rounds, after co-trainer Mark Breland threw in the towel to prevent his boxer from taking further punishment.

Wilder has made allegations that Breland was a double-agent and potentially could have spiked his water.

He parted ways with Breland a few weeks ago.

After Wilder began making the allegations, Chisora tried to send him a text with words of encouragement.

"I sent him a message to be honest with you. I was like, 'Listen bro, just dust yourself off man. Just get back in the ring.' This whole thing of next minute you’re talking about black empowerment, this and this. This is the fight game. You lost the fight. You know what you do: brush yourself, bounce back, take your rematch,” Chisora told IFL TV.

"But he’s coming out with excuses. He [Fury] has this in his glove, he had that in his glove, water was spiked. Was the water spiked? How does he know the water was spiked? ‘Do you know what, who knows? This is why I carry my own water. I don’t trust no-one. I’m telling you, I bring my own water from my house and I bring the bottles and I wash them four times and I keep it in my room and that’s it.

"But he’s just coming up with excuses man. Bro, just take the fight, you got beat, everybody loses a fight, just come back. He keeps crying about this nonsense, I don’t know why."
