Deontay Wilder has spoken for the first time after his knock out fight against Tyson Fury. The American lost the fight based on technical knockout in the eleventh round.
The Bronze Bomber posted the message on his official Twitter account on Thursday, October 14th, 2021.
He thanked his fans who stood by him throughout before the fight and after the fight.
Wow, what a hell of a night. 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 expertisesence is far greater than what I expected to happen.
Wilder added that the fight had taught him a lot and he said feels like a winner too because he believes victories are in the lesson.
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.
Wilder is expected to undergo surgery on his hand after the fight and is expected to stay off the ring for six months.
