Fury offered his condolences to the Bronze Bomber after his brutal knockout victory
Fury is now the first man to ever win any version of the heavyweight title in his career after winning the WBA, WBO and IBF belts that Anthony Joshua is now holding after his victory over Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.
Wilder has 30 days to activate his rematch clause to start a trilogy fight after the couple fought an exciting draw in Los Angeles in December 2018.
For now, the Bronze Bomber is in the hospital looking for medical help after he has had a bad bleeding in his ear during his brutal loss. His coach, Jay Deas, said the 35-year-old might need stitches.
