Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight, Lineal and Ring Magazine champion, has taken to social media to wish former titleholder and heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder a happy birthday.
Wilder turned 36 today, October 22. The birthday wish clearly had no sarcasm or baiting, just Fury trying to let bygones be bygones considering that Wilder was still unwilling to settle their dispute following Fury’s knockout win in their third fight.
Wilder’s two professional losses have come at the hands of Fury and Wilder infamously refused shaking Fury after their last fight.
“This is a very special happy birthday message to my ol’ mate Deontay ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Wilder,” Fury says.
“Have a fantastic day, Wilder. Thank you for the great fights that we had, the trilogy — great fighter, awesome fighter, and I hope you have a fantastic day with you and your family, and I hope God blesses you abundantly. All the best, lots of love from your ol’ pal ‘The Gypsy King.’”
