‘Even the greatest lose’, says Deontay Wilder after his crushing knock out defeat to Tyson Fury on Sunday.
Fury, the Gypsy King, was all over Wilder from the first bell knocking him down twice along the way to victory.
The first knockdown came in the third round as Fury unloaded a tough combination to drop Wilder, landing a right hook to the back of Wilder’s head which looked to have perforated his eardrum.
“My side threw in the towel, I was ready to go out on my shield,” Wilder said.
“I had a lot of things going on coming into this fight. I make no excuse, I wish my corner let me go out on my shield. No excuses, I will come back and be stronger.
“Even the greatest lose, that’s part of it. You take it for what it is. I had a lot of complications, we’ll come back even stronger. This is what heavyweight boxing is all about.
“I hope everyone at home enjoyed the fight. Thank you for coming out.”
Fury’s victory sees him crowned WBC, The Ring and lineal heavyweight champion.
