Promoter Bob arum justified the attitude of Deontay Wilder, after he refused to acknowledge the triumph of Tyson fury and shake hands, after finishing the fight between them.
“It was not good, but neither you nor me have been beaten and shocked like Wilder that night, ”he said Arum in interview for iFL TV. “So I think the charitable thing would be to let this (to Wilder). I approached him, as I always do, I approached the losing fighter, and I told him he made a great fight, but he didn’t even look at me. “
Arum made it clear that everyone involved in that moment should let that moment pass above the ring. Justify Deontay, as he was in very bad condition after the knockout he received and all the blows he suffered during the fight.
“Tyson approached and (Wilder) mouthed something stupid like, ‘I don’t respect you,’ ”he recalls Arum about that moment when Fury went to the corner of Wilder at the end of the fight. But again, see what he (Deontay) had happened and what he had suffered and what his body had suffered. And I think it would be appropriate for all of us to let go of what he said Wilder and how he acted after the fight. “
Five days later, Wilder congratulated Fury
On Thursday afternoon, five days after the fight in which he was defeated in front of Tyson fury, Deontay Wilder posted a message on his account Instagram, where he congratulated the English fighter.
After talking about what he went through on Saturday, Wilder had a message of congratulations, thanks, and appreciation for Tyson fury.
“Last but not least, I want to congratulate Tyson fury for the victory and thank you for the historical memories that will live forever “, he closed Wilder.
Finally, Wilder did not shake hands with Fury on the ring, but he did give it to him on social networks.
