‘You’re an awesome fighter and I hope you have a great day with you and your family.

‘I hope God blesses you abundantly. All the best and lots of love from your old pal, the Gypsy King.’

Fury’s kind words come just under a fortnight after knocking out Wilder to win their trilogy bout.

Fury came through a bruising third contest between the pair at the T-Mobile Arena, eventually delivering an 11th-round knockout of the American to end a bout which saw each man sent to the canvas on October 9.

Following the defeat, Wilder had initially refused to acknowledge his rival’s triumph, saying he had no respect for the British heavyweight, with plenty of bad blood between the rival camps over their trilogy.

Wilder, however, has now accepted the outcome, and vowed to return to the ring a stronger person.

‘Wow, what a hell of a night!’ Wilder wrote on social media on October 14.

‘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.’

Fury replied to Wilder’s post by tweeting: ‘The greatest trilogy of all time.’

Following his victory, Fury said he had left no doubt that he is the best heavyweight of the era, his record now standing at 31-0-1, with 22 KOs.
