Eyes of the sporting world were left stunned on Saturday night, as they watched Tyson Fury pulverize Deontay Wilder on his way to a seventh round TKO to claim the WBC Heavyweight champions belt. Just moments after the fight was called, Fury and Wilder shared a touching moment, where the Gypsy King lauded the former champ's courage and tenacity.
During the prematch festivities, the two heavyweight fighters may have acted like they hated one another, but that was merely a performance they put forth to play into the hype of their anticipated bout.
This exchange from Fury and Wilder proves that the two champions have nothing but the utmost respect for one another outside of the boxing ring. We can only hope that Round 3 looms in the future.
