He ends his message promising to regain his heavyweight championship from Fury.
“We will rise again. We will regain the title. I will be back. We will hold our heads up high. Your king is in great spirit, and we will rise like a phoenix from the ashes and regain the title.
“I’ll see you in a few months, for the war has just begun. All my love, to all my people.”
As previously reported, Wilder will be exercising his right to a rematch in the next few months,
“We’re definitely going on with it. That’s for sure. By the summertime.”
In addition, he addressed that he knew there was a problem with his legs.
“There were a lot of things that went wrong leading up to the fight, in the last minutes before the fight, but I accept full responsibility. I paid a severe price because my legs were how they were because of my uniform.”
He further explained,
“My uniform was way too heavy. It was 40-plus pounds. We had it on 10 or 15 minutes before we even walked out and then put the helmet on. That was extra weight, then the ring walk, then going up the stairs. It was like a real workout for my legs. When I took it off, I knew immediately that game has changed.”
Fury outlanded Wilder 82-34 in total punches and out-threw the Alabama-native 267-141, according to reports. Fury landed at a 30% clip while Wilder landed 24%. Fury landed 58 power punches in less than seven rounds of action after landing just 38 in the first meeting.
