Tyson Fury accuses Wilder of not wanting to show respect after knockout win

Tyson Fury has accused Deontay Wilder of not wanting to show him respect after his 11th round knockout win.

Fury approached the Bronze Bomber's corner after securing victory in Vegas, but Wilder didn't appear to want to speak to his rival.

Fury told the crowd in his post-fight interview: "I'm a sportsman, I went over to [ Deontay Wilder ] to show some love and respect and he didn't want to show it back. I will pray for him so that God will soften his heart."

He also claimed Wilder, "Has no love for me!"

On the fight itself, Fury added: "It was a great fight tonight, worthy of the best trilogies.

"I will not make any excuses, Wilder is a top fighter, he gave me a run for my money. I always say I am the best fighter in the world and he is the second-best.

"Don't ever doubt me. When the chips are down I can always deliver."

Fury scored three knockdowns in an incredible third fight between the two warriors in the early hours of Sunday.

Wilder also had Fury on the canvas twice, but the Gypsy King proved too much for his opponent at the T-Mobile Arena.

Few gave Wilder any chance of reversing the result that saw him lose his title 20 months ago when he was left bloodied and broken following a savage beating from Fury, who was making the first defence of his WBC heavyweight title crown.

The writing looked to be on the wall when Wilder went down early on despite a decent start although he showed his champion pedigree by storming back into the clash.

Fury had never before been knocked down twice in a round but he, too, showed tremendous grit before taking a foothold in the contest around the halfway stage, with Wilder looking exhausted thereafter.

The Alabaman still remained a threat and had brief moments of success but he looked every inch the beaten man when Fury closed the show after one minute and 10 seconds of the penultimate round.
