Five days after showing a lot in the big match against Tyson Fury, but also once again losing to his biggest rival, Deontay Wilder addressed the world with a meaningful post on Instagram. We can characterize these few days of silence as a good decision, as he allowed his impressions to subside and, driven by positive emotions, he can send the first words to the public after a phenomenal match in which he did not disappoint.
"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 @ gypsyking101 for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever."
Wilder will rest
From the attached, we can see that all this was carefully designed to give the best impression, especially after Wilder refused Fury's greeting after the match and after his coach Malik Scott said that even after the match the negative tensions he felt towards his opponent did not disappear.
But maybe it really only took him a couple of days outside of everything, during which he must have thought a lot and made some decisions that we’ll probably be familiar in the coming weeks. Deontay announced he would rest now, but some information emerged from his team that he might be ready to re-enter the ring in March or April.
It will be a new story in which Deontay will have to rebuild something. The positive thing for him is that after a match like this, the interest in his new performance will surely be great and that there is certainly a lot more that "Bronze Bomber" has to offer.
