Speaking after battering Wilder, Fury said: "He improved, he worked on his boxing and stuff. It was a different fight.

"It was a much different fight than Fight 2, and a much different fight from Fight 1.

"He came in real heavy tonight, 238 pounds, and I believe that helped him and he was definitely hitting solid."

He added: "But you know what, I thought that we fought it all out there and all allegations that were made towards me throughout the build-up of this fight, we fought like two warriors in there and I went over to shake his hand and say, 'Well done,' and he was like, 'No, I don't respect you.'

"I was like, how can you say I cheated when you know in your own heart and your full team knows that you just got beat fair and square.

"It's just a sore loser in boxing, I'm sure he's not the first one and he won't be the last one, but I've acted like a gentleman throughout my career and that's all I can do as a man."
