A few days then went by without a peep from the “Bronze Bomber.” Criticism came about when a video was released on Thursday of Wilder refusing to shake Fury’s hand immediately when the Brit walked over to his corner. The former WBC heavyweight champion released a statement on his Instagram page which included congratulating Fury on the victory.
“Wow, what a hell of a night!,” Wilder said in the statement. “I would like to first and foremost thank God for allowing me to give the world another part of me that’s driven with passion and determination. I would like to thank my team and my fans for sticking by my side through this long process. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t disappointed in the outcome but after reflecting on my journey, I now see that what God wanted me to experience is far greater than what I expected to happen.
“We didn’t get the win but a wise man once said the victories are within the lessons. I’ve learned that sometimes you have to lose to win. Although, I wanted the win I enjoyed seeing the fans win even more. Hopefully, I proved that I am a true Warrior and a true King in this sport. Hopefully, WE proved that no matter how hard you get hit with trials and tribulations you can always pick yourself up to live and fight again for what you believe in. Last but not least I would like to congratulate @gypsyking101 (Fury) for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.”
During the lead-up to last weekend’s third fight, Wilder had refused to acknowledge that Fury won the February 2020 rematch. Wilder had accused Fury of cheating and remained steadfast in that assumption.
