Deontay Wilder breaks silence as he thanks Tyson Fury for ‘great historical memories’

However, despite the accusations, and ‘The Bronze Bomber’ telling him after the fight he had no respect for him, Fury has already credited Wilder for his role in what many have dubbed a fight ‘for the ages’. 

“I’ve never cheated in my life,” Fury told reporters.

“I play fair and square. He’s got a bad hatred towards me, I don’t know why. But let me tell you, he lost like a man tonight, put me down three times (twice), I put him down four (three) — great heavyweight fight.”
