Fury ended Wilder’s challenge with a knockout in the 11th round on Sunday morning to remain undefeated and retain his WBC Heavyweight title.
After the fight, Fury sought to embrace and have a handshake with a battered Wilder but was told that he does not have his (Wilder’s) respect, a comment that didn’t sit well with the Gypsy king.
“Well, you know what, I thought that we fought all out there and all allegations that they made towards me, like throughout the build-up to this fight”, Fury said in the post fight interview.
“We fought like two warriors in there and I went over to shake his hand and say, ‘well done’. And he was like, no, ‘I don’t respect you’.
“I was like, ‘how can you say I cheated when you know in your own heart and your full team knows that you got beat fair and square.’ So it’s just like he’s just a sore loser in boxing.”
