The entire world has been praising Tyson Fury for his sensational performance. However, The Bronze Bomber has not acknowledged Fury for the victory.

Deontay Wilder’s legs looked extremely uncomfortable throughout the fight and he fell down a lot of times. Tyson Fury managed to grab two successful knockdowns against Wilder. There were times when Wilder fell down due to inappropriate footwork and head movement. While Tyson Fury should be credited for imposing such heavy damage on his opponent, Deontay Wilder is not ready to acknowledge the fact.

During an interview with Yahoo Sports, The Bronze Bomber (Deontay Wilder) said, “He (Tyson Fury) didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is my uniform was way too heavy for me. I did not have legs from the beginning of the fight. In the third round, my legs were just shot all the way through. But I am a warrior and people know that I am a warrior.”
