NFL stars reacted to the fight on Twitter

This memorable bout co-authored by two of the most gruesome athletes in boxing history has got the world talking. However, by the end of the fight, Fury led in all three scorecards, as he was forced to overcome an almost inhuman resiliency showed by Wilder.

“Like the great John Wayne said, ‘I’m made of pig, iron and steel, baby!'” Fury said. “I took some big shots but my lord and savior helped me up and kept me going. It was a great fight tonight and it’s worthy of any trilogy in the history of the sport.”

The fight was so intense among the fierce rivals that it couldn’t help NFL players to get their hands off of it. Stars like Le’Veon Bell, Mark Ingram II, Chris Baker, Adrian Peterson and many others took a dip in this one of the most combative matches in boxing history.

The fight was so engaging and challenging that even Tyson Fury addressed it himself by saying, “October 9, 2021, will go down in history as a great fight,” he further added. “Don’t ever doubt me. When the chips are down, I can always deliver.”

After the match was over, blood-soaked Wilder sat in his corner, and Fury attempted to congratulate him. However, Wilder didn’t seem humble about his loss as he ignored his competitor following his win. “Deontay Wilder is so tough, but he has no love for me because I beat him three times,” Fury said. “I am a sportsman, I went over to show love and respect but he didn’t want to give it back.”
