Boxer Deontay Wilder Breaks Silence After Defeat

Boxer Deontay Wilder has finally broken his silence after his second defeat to WBC and British heavyweight boxing champion, Tyson Fury in their trilogy fight in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Boxer Deontay Wilder who previously refused to congratulate Tyson Fury after the fight, taking to his official social media handle on Thursday 14th October 2021, posted a photo of himself inside the Lag Vegas boxing ring before the fight, congratulating the British boxer for his win. 

35-year-old who was stopped by Fury in the 11th round after twice knocking down the Briton himself in a thrilling third meeting between the pair, said:

“I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t disappointed,” said Wilder.

“I’ve learned that sometimes you have to lose to win.”

He continued:

 “Hopefully, I proved that I am a true Warrior and a true King in this sport. Hopefully, WE proved that no matter how hard you get hit with trials and tribulations you can always pick yourself up to live and fight again for what you believe in.”

On Fury, he had this to say:

 “Last but not least I would like to congratulate @gypsyking101 for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.”

Fury, who retained his WBC world heavyweight title, said: “I thought we fought it all out there and all the allegations that they made towards me throughout the build-up of this fight, and we fought like two warriors in there.

“I went over to shake his hand and say well done and he was like ‘No, I don’t respect you’. How can you say I’ve cheated when you know in your own heart and your full team knows that you just got beat fair and square.

“He’s a sore loser, I’m sure he’s not the first one and he won’t be the last one.”
