Deontay Wilder reacts to Tyson Fury’s win

Last Saturday former heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury came back to the ring with a win over German boxer Tom Schwarz. In the main event of the boxing night in Las Vegas the “Gipsy King” showed a huge gap in skill levels and easily knocked his opponent out in the second round.

We have already posted what pro boxers think about that victory but it excluded the reaction of the main person everyone waited for. We’re talking here about Tyson Fury’s previous opponent Deontay Wilder. Today, the “Bronze Bomber” shared his thoughts on his former opponent’s performance.

It was a cool performance. It wasn’t much of an opponent. I think (Schwarz) only threw four punches. He was a punching bag. Fury did what he was supposed to. They’re trying to promote him up, saying things, selling this story about him over and over again, talking about him as the lineal champion. … It’s building him up. But the performance was just okay.”

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury met in the ring in December and gave one of the best fights of last year. Fury outboxed Wilder but at the end of the fight the American knocked the “Gipsy King” down twice, and the fight was called a draw by majority decision.

Since then Deontay Wilder had one more fight against WBC mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale whom he defeated with a massive fifth-round KO.
