Tyson Fury has labelled Deontay Wilder a âsore loser in boxingâ after the Bronze Bomber refused his sportmanâs gesture of an embrace and handshake which is common after a fight.
Fury ended Wilderâs 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 (Wilderâs) respect, a comment that didnât sit well with the Gypsy king.
âWell, 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 fightâ, Fury said in the post fight interview.
âWe fought like two warriors in there and I went over to shake his hand and say, âwell doneâ. And he was like, no, âI donât respect youâ.
âI was like, âhow can you say I cheated when you know in your own heart and your full team knows that you got beat fair and square.â So itâs just like heâs just a sore loser in boxing.â
