Following his 11th round knockout victory, Tyson Fury accused Deontay Wilder of refusing to show him respect.
After winning in Vegas, Fury approached Wilder’s corner, but the Bronze Bomber didn’t seem interested in speaking with him.
In his post-fight interview, Fury told the crowd:
I’m a sportsman, I went over to Deontay Wilder to show some love and respect and he didn’t want to show it back. I will pray for him so that God will soften his heart.
He’s got no love for me, Deontay Wilder, and do you know why? Because I beat him three times.
On the fight itself, Fury added:
It was a great fight tonight, worthy of the best trilogies.
I will not make any excuses, Wilder is a top fighter, he gave me a run for my money. I always say I am the best fighter in the world and he is the second-best.
Don’t ever doubt me. When the chips are down I can always deliver.

In an extraordinary third bout between the two fighters in the early hours of Sunday, Fury scored three knockdowns.
Wilder also put Fury on the canvas twice, but at the T-Mobile Arena, the Gypsy King was too much for his opponent.
Few believed Wilder had a chance to avenge his title loss 20 months earlier, when he was left bruised and shattered after a horrific thrashing by Fury, who was making his maiden defense of the WBC heavyweight title.
The writing appeared to be on the wall when Wilder went down early in the fight after a strong start, but he demonstrated his champion lineage by charging back into the fight.
