Deontay Wilder chose PEACE today via his Instagram account as he reflected on his Saturday night loss to Tyson Fury.
Initially, after Wilder was knocked out in the 11th round of the trilogy fight on Saturday night (October 9) he refused to shake Fury’s hand and told him that he didn’t respect him.
According to Fury, Wilder also accused him of cheating.

Well, after doing some soul searching Wilder came to the realization that things happened the way God intended them to happen Saturday night and he congratulated Fury on his victory via Instagram.
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 for what you believe in. Last but not least I would like to congratulate @gypsyking101 for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.
