“I give him the glory for the victory. He’s a tough man. He took some big shots tonight,” Fury said after the fight. “It was a great fight, as good as any trilogy in history.
“I beat him three times and I’m a sportsman and wanted to give him some love and respect. And he didn’t want to give it back. That’s his problem and I pray for him.
“This was a great fight and October 9, 2021 will go down in history, I hope. I always said I was the best in the world and he was the second best. Don’t ever doubt me. When the chips are down, I will always deliver.”
The Briton was also keen to heap praise on his own trainer, who he credited for the win.
“And I want to say if it wasn’t for Sugar (Hill), America’s and Detroit’s own, I wouldn’t have gotten through that fight tonight,” Fury added.
“He told me, he said get your jab working, big guy, and throw that right hand down the middle. That’s how the big dogs do it.”
