Tyson Fury appears to squash Deontay Wilder beef with classy Twitter reply

Two-time world heavyweight champions Tyson Fury has offered a classy Twitter reply to Deontay Wilder which appears to have quashed the beef between the two boxers.

Fury defeated Wilder in the trilogy bout of their rivalry, knocking him out in the 11th round of a blockbuster fight last weekend.

It caps a three-year long battle between the pair, which has frequently descended into a war of words in the build-up to each of their three bouts.

Having won two of those fights, Fury now stands on his own as the top heavyweight boxer in the sport, with the trilogy bout in Las Vegas going down as an all-time classic.

Following the fight, Wilder appeared to snub Fury’s offer of a handshake, with the British boxer subsequently branding the American an “idiot” and a “sore loser”.

Wilder has moved to improve his relationship with his main rival of recent years by offering his congratulations in an Instagram post.

“Wow, what a hell of a night! 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,” he wrote.

“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.
