‘The Gypsy King’, however, was the better boxer on fight night. Hence, he claimed a gratifying win to cement his spot right at the top.

Post the fight, Fury went to meet Wilder to rub off the rivalry. But at that moment, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ refused to conclude the beef. Subsequently, Fury spoke to Wilder’s manager Shelly Finkel and said, “He’s got bad hatred towards me. I don’t know why. But let me tell you, he lost like a man tonight. He put me down three times, I put him down four (times). Great heavyweight fight.”
