Boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather Jnr, has reacted to American boxer Deontay Wilder’s defeat to British fighter, Tyson Fury.
Earlier on Sunday, Fury had knocked Wilder out in the 7th round at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, USA, in their rematch on Saturday night to regain the WBC world heavyweight title.
Mayweather, a fellow countryman with Wilder, defended him, saying that the 34-year-old is still a champion despite losing to Fury in Las Vegas.
In a post on his official Instagram page, wrote: “Win, Lose or Draw, Deontay is our brother that has accomplished many triumphs. As a community, we should all uplift and support him throughout it all. No matter what, you’re still a winner in my eyes, King!”
