Unseen footage emerges of dazed Deontay Wilder telling Tyson Fury ‘I won’t respect you’ after Brit’s classy gesture

DRAMATIC new footage of Tyson Fury’s post-fight encounter with Deontay Wilder has come to light.

The Gypsy King closed the book on his rivalry with the American last weekend with a brutal 11th-round KO victory in Las Vegas.

Moments after the stunning stoppage, Fury went over to Wilder’s corner to give him props for his herculean effort.

But despite their epic back-and-forth, the WBC champ was met with animosity from his rival.

Shortly after seeing Fury come over, a battered and bruised Wilder repeatedly said: “No love.

An irate Fury replied: “Never mind love, there’s respect.

“You got beat fair and square tonight. That’s it. I respect you because I’m a man.”

Former WBC champ Wilder then said: “I won’t respect you, I won’t respect you. I will never respect you.”


Before he was ushered away from Wilder’s corner, Fury then said: “Don’t show bad sport[manship], you lost fair and square.”

Former unified heavyweight champion Fury then turned his attention to Wilder’s co-manager, Shelly Finkel.

The Wythenshawe warrior told the American lawyer: “Listen, I never cheated in my whole life. I played fair and square.

“He’s got a bad hatred towards me, I don’t know why.

“But let me tell you, he lost like a man tonight. He put me down three times, I had to put him down four. “

Fury, 33, slammed Wilder for his lack of sportsmanship in the post-fight press conference, saying: “An idiot.
