By Charles Brown: Tyson Fury has praised a tearful Deontay Wilder after his win over Robert Helenius on December 15, saying his victory over ‘The Bronze Bomber’ “humbled him”.
Interestingly, Fury claims to have beaten Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) three times instead of twice.
Of course, many boxing fans believe that Fury has, in fact, lost two of the three fights against Deontay, and should have been disqualified for the rabbit punch in the second fight. In other words, Wilder is up 2-0 against Fury.
If you saw the first and third fights, it’s hard not to say that Wilder won against Fury. In both cases, Fury was on the drawing board for a long time.
Fury’s many mentions of Wilder show that these are the most important victories of his life. It’s unfortunate that both of them were damaged by Wilder’s head kicks, which arguably should have stopped the fight.
“Maybe I hit him a little hard. “He was probably humbled by all three of my punches,” Tyson Fury told True Geordie about Deontay Wilder crying during an interview after his first-round knockout of Robert Helenius on the 15th. for December.
It’s interesting how Fury turns things around, showing that he’s the one who destroyed Wilder instead of the other way around. We know that after Fury’s third fight with Wilder, he retired and talked about not wanting to take a decision.
The two knockouts that Deontay won in this fight may make Fury start to worry about his health because he hasn’t fought since then, and it was clear to some of his fans that. He intentionally closed his conversation with Anthony Joshua to avoid a kick from the 6’6″ former two-time world champion.
If you listen to Wilder’s post-fight interview, he talks about his thoughts on the many fighters who suffer damage during their careers.
Deontay also talked about knocking Helenius out cold, and you can see that he cares about his friend & former partner.
