Tyson Fury is the WBC heavyweight champion of the world after completely dominating Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.
What a performance from Fury!
After his victory, Tyson did not hesitate to give praise to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
“First and foremost, I wanna say thank you to the one who saved me ‘The Lord Jesus Christ’. I say those who plan evil against me shall never prosper, those who stand in the dark can never come into light. Oh praise be to the one and only true God, Jesus Christ.”
Hence, he went on to pay tribute to his opponent, saying: “I just wanna give a big shout out to Deontay Wilder. You know, we came here tonight and it really got so hard for the champion. I hit him with a right and he got back, he is a warrior and he will be back and he will be a champion again. But I will say, the king has returned to the top of the throne”
His brilliant speech, thanking Jesus and dedicating the victory to him is rare in that fashion; leaving your opponents with a bloodied face and thanking Jesus? (Devil must be in real big trouble)
Meanwhile, Wilder was gracious in defeat.
“My corner threw in the towel but I was ready to go out on my shield,” he said. “There is no excuses. I am a warrior and I wanted to go back out on my shield. I will come back even stronger the next time around. This is what big time boxing is, the best must fight the best.”
Fury’s victory came after Wilder had on January 14, boasted that not even God can save Tyson from being defeated by him.
I told you before our first fight that I was going to baptize you. And I did. But not even God can save you the second time around. I promise you that.
