    He repaired his legacy with this fight actually. He was at his worst in the second fight.

    He should fight bodybuilder and then both should retire.

    Nice to finally see him accept defeat and not come out with anymore ridiculous accusations. I hope he carries on. There’s still some big pay days out there for him. Would still love to see AJ-Wilder.

    Well it's good that the sour grapes have started to sweeten.

    Plus there was no real excuses or mention of his broken hand etc in the statement.

    Maybe the beating knocked some sense in to Wilder after all. Albeit a delayed reaction ;)

    This would be better with a video of someone reading this to Wilder with his subsequent agreement. But it’s a nice start.

    Just a coincidence that it was posted a few hours after that footage was released then huh....i'll give Wilder props when I hear it come out of his own mouth, rather then a statement hastily written by his pr team...

    On twitter:

    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

    Deontay Wilder.

    No way Wilder could have written that, the man can barely articulate a sentence.

    PR team: We should repair this idiot's legacy a bit.

    He got what is probably a career ending beat down in my opinion so I’m cutting him a bit of slack for not shaking the mans hand who has battered him straight after it happened

    Props for wilder for recognizing he lost. Hopefully they can put down the grudge and move on whether it be retirement or towards the next fight.

    I've been on YouTube and twitter and some of the Wilder fans just haven't taken this defeat very well.

    Everything from Furys bareknuckle background :confused: to Hoesehair gloves to Wilder was damaged in the second fight when Fury "cheated".

    I would normally laugh but some of it is just outrageous, I have found it hard to accept some results but I've never been anywhere near that bad.. I worry about some of their mental states.
