British boxer, Tyson Fury, retained his World Boxing Council heavyweight title on Saturday night after defeating counterpart, Deontay Wilder. It took Fury one final punch during the 11th round to clinch the title in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He had defeated Wilder back in February of 2020 to earn the championship belt. While responding to interview questions after the match, Fury replied, "I would like to say thank you to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. In the mighty name of Jesus, I won this fight tonight again. I give him the glory. He gives me the victory."

During the interview, Fury wore a baseball cap emblazoned with the words, "Jesus: El Rey Viene," a Spanish phrase that means "Jesus, the King is coming."

The Gypsie King, as Fury is also called, talked about his opponent and how he is grateful to God for giving him the win. He said, "I was down a couple of times. I was hurt. He's a strong puncher. He is a tough man. I was hitting him with some big shots. And my Lord and Savior rose me to my feet tonight to give him the glory."

"It was a great fight tonight. It was worthy of any trilogy in the history of the sport. I'm not going to make any excuses. Wilder is a tough fighter. He gave me a real run for my money tonight. And I've always said I'm the best in the world and he's the second-best. 

‘’He's got no love for me, Deontay Wilder because I've beat him three times. And I'm like, I'm a sportsman. I want some love and opportunity to show him some respect and he didn't want to give it back. So that's Deontay's problem. I'll pray for him, so God will soften his heart," Fury added.
