Tyson Fury says ‘everyone’ knows he won the fight against Deontay Wilder even after two knockdowns by the American.
The British boxer was knocked down twice in the 12th-round but managed to stand on his feet in a thrilling fight.
Despite the set-backs, Fury feels he should have won the fight on points after landing some impressive punches.
“I’m what you call a professional athlete, who loves to box. I Slip and slide, show my skill, 6ft9 and 260lbs,” Fury told BT Sports Box Office.
“I don’t know anybody on the planet who could move like that.
“That man is a fearsome puncher, but I avoided his shots tonight. Listen, I’m not going to take anything from Wilder, he’s a great champion and a great man. I thank him for the opportunity. The world knows the truth. I thought I won the fight. I thought I should have taken the belt home.”
Having landed some ferocious jabs and a succession of accurate right hands early on, the 30-year-old was brought to the canvas in the final round by the WBC Champion.
“Listen, we’re on away soil. I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won the fight, and I believe every man in here thought I won that fight.
“But I’m showing total professionalism here. I’m a true champion, a true warrior. I went to Germany to fight Klitschko, I came to America to fight Deontay Wilder.
“He’s a fighting man, thank you for the opportunity. Bless you and your family, God bless you, and God bless America. The ‘Gypsy King’ has returned.”
“I was never going to be knocked out tonight. I got put down with some good shots. Showed good heart to get back up. I came here tonight and I fought my heart out.”
A rematch between both fighters is certain to happen sometime soon according to Fury.
The 30-year-old will enter into negotiations after he’s taken some time out to recalculate.
“Listen, 100 per cent we’ll do the rematch. We are going to go away, recalculate, see what’s going to happen, get back together.
