“I’m a sportsman. I went over to him to show some love and respect and he didn’t want to give it back,” Tyson Fury reveals the exchange of words after knocking out Deontay Wilder in the 11th round in Las Vegas.
The British star finally ended his lengthy saga with Wilder after inflicting a crushing knockout in the 11th round to retain his WBC heavyweight title in Las Vegas.
But Fury has accused Wilder of rejecting his words of respect when he went to the American’s corner after the fight.
Fury traded words with Deontay Wilder after his knockout win in Las Vegas: “I’m not going to make any excuses, Wilder is a top fighter,” said Fury.
“He gave me a real run for my money tonight, and I always said I’m the best in the world and he’s the second best.
“He’s got no love for me, Deontay Wilder, because you know why, because I beat him three times.
“I’m a sportsman. I went over to him to show some love and respect and he didn’t want to give it back. That’s his problem.”
Fury preserved his 32-fight unbeaten record, strengthening his status as the division’s leading champion after Anthony Joshua lost his WBA, IBF and WBO belts in last month’s unanimous decision defeat by Oleksandr Usyk.
“I’m now the greatest heavyweight of my era, without a doubt,” said Fury.
“No 1. Look what I’ve done.
“I’ve come to America my last six fights and fought the most devastating puncher in the history of our sport.
“Not once, not twice, but three times.”
