Wilder congratulate Fury on his victory says ‘sometimes you need to lose to win.

American boxer Deontay Wilder has congratulated Tyson Fury on his victory against him in Las Vegas.

Wilder admits that he was disappointed with the defeat but insists one needs to lose to win.

“I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t disappointed in the outcome,” Wilder wrote. “Sometimes you have to lose to win. … Last but not least I would like to congratulate (Fury) for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.

“We fought like two warriors in there,” Fury said during Saturday’s post-fight press conference. “I went to shake his hand and say well done, and he said, ‘No, I don’t respect you.’ He’s acted like a sore loser in boxing. I’m sure he’s not the first one, and he won’t be the last one.”

The 35-year-old, Wilder, who was taken to University Medical Center after the fight didn’t address the media on the night, finally gave Fury his propers on Thursday.

“We didn’t get the win but a wise man once said the victories are within the lessons,” Wilder wrote. “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.”
