Tyson Fury knocked out Deontay Wilder to retain his WBC, The Ring and lineal heavyweight titles. The fight could go down as one of the greatest heavyweight boxing spectacles of all time.

While it looked like the bad blood between the two would come to an end after the trilogy concluded, that certainly wasn't the case.

In a post-fight interview with BT Sport, Tyson Fury revealed what Deontay Wilder said to him when the victorious Englishman went in to shake hands with 'The Bronze Bomber'. Fury revealed:

"I said, 'well done.' He said, 'I don't want to show any sportsmanship or respect.' I said, 'no problem!'... [I was] very surprised, sore loser, an idiot. Do you know what? To be a top fighting man, you gotta show guts and respect, and he couldn't do it tonight."

After an eleven-round slugfest, Tyson Fury eventually landed a huge right hand while backing Wilder on the ropes. The referee immediately stopped the fight after witnessing Wilder collapse to the mat in dreadful fashion.
