Deontay Wilder has finally spoken after he was defeated by Tyson Fury on Saturday night with an 11th-round TKO at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
He thanked God for allowing him to give the world another part of him. He added that sometimes one has to lose for one to win.
According to him:
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 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.
Last but not least, I would like to congratulate @gypsyking101 for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will forever
