Tyson Fury’s management is ‘disgusted’ by Deontay Wilder’s conduct following his outstanding Gypsy King victory.
Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder fought in Las Vegas, and it was a thrilling fight.
Tim Allcock, Tyson Fury’s manager, delivered a colorful interview following his fighter’s thrilling victory over Deontay Wilder on Saturday night in Las Vegas. The fight was hailed as an all-time heavyweight classic, capping off a fantastic trilogy between the Brit and the American, albeit the latter’s sportsmanship was called into doubt after the final bell.
When Fury landed a knockdown in the third round, it appeared that the fight would follow the script after the Manchester-born fighter had won their previous meeting handily.
Wilder, on the other hand, came roaring back in the fourth round, knocking down the Englishman with time to spare in the round and sending Fury to the canvas twice in short succession.
Although the Brit got back up on his feet on both occasions and never appeared to be in full survival mode, it was clearly a stressful period for him.
The fight lasted until the 11th round, when Fury delivered the knockout shot to floor a gassed out Wilder, after an extraordinary back-and-forth battle.
Despite the obvious exhaustion that came with weighing in exceptionally heavy, the American was praised for his bravery.
After the final bell, he refused to shake his opponent’s hand, which took some of the luster off his praise.
“He’s been hovering about like a terrible odor,” Allcock told iFL TV.
“If he had shaken Tyson’s hand, I would have been disgusted with him, but now I’m disgusted with him.” He’s taken away his entire heart.
“I was there and he didn’t acknowledge me; he’s a jerk who ruined it for himself.”
“You just witnessed the best heavyweight fight in history, and in my opinion, [Fury] is better than all the legendary heavyweights that have ever fought.”
Shots were fired in both directions during the build-up to the fight between the two camps.
While Fury’s claim that he would hospitalize Wilder proved to be true with precautionary measures taken after the final bell, the pre-fight conversation was clearly lingering on Wilder’s mind.
“I relished giving him a thorough hiding,” Fury continued. It was only a matter of time till he passed away. He was the first to go down and the last to go down, and that was the end of it.
“I went to say ‘well done,'” says the author of “Brinkwire Summary News.”
