Following his defeat, Wilder breaks his silence and expresses gratitude to Fury for providing him with “wonderful historical memories.”


Deontay Wilder, an American professional boxer, has finally spoken out after losing to Tyson Fury in a WBC heavyweight title fight in Las Vegas over the weekend.

The boxer noted in a message posted on his verified Instagram profile that while he is disappointed that he lost the bout, he has learned from it.

After being knocked down twice by Fury, the 35-year-old was halted in the 11th round. Wilder turned down Fury’s offer to embrace him in the spirit of sportsmanship after his defeat.

Wilder, on the other hand, complimented Fury and thanked him for “the magnificent historical memories that will endure forever” in a recent post.

“Wow, what a hell of a night!” wrote the boxer. First and foremost, I want to express my gratitude to God for allowing me to share with the world another aspect of myself that is driven by passion and dedication. I’d like to express my gratitude to my teammates and supporters for sticking by me throughout this long process. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t upset with the conclusion, but after meditating on my trip, I’ve come to realize that what God wanted me to experience was far better than what I had anticipated.

“We didn’t win, but as a wise man once remarked, victory is found in the lessons.” I’ve come to realize that sometimes you have to lose in order to win. Even though I wanted to win, I was more excited to see the fans win. In this sport, I hope to have demonstrated that I am a true Warrior and a true King. Hopefully, WE demonstrated that no matter how hard life throws you curveballs, you can always get yourself up and fight for what you believe in. Finally, I’d like to congratulate @gypsyking101 on his triumph and express my gratitude for the incredible historical memories that will last a lifetime. #TilThisDay #BomZquad.” (sic)
