Deontay Wilder’s girlfriend, Telli Swift has urged him to fight Tyson Fury in a third bout to get his WBC title back.
Fury and Wilder clashed in Las Vegas in a second bout after their first ended in a split draw.
The second bouted ended in the seventh round after Wilder, who was knocked down twice, had his team throw in the towel.
Consoling her man a day after the fight, Telli Swift reminded him of his passion for the sport of boxing and urged him to achieve his dreams by engaging Fury in a third bout.
She wrote: “Deontay, you showed us what Strength, Passion, and Courage looks like. You showed the world what it takes to Be A Champion. Most people have no idea just how hard you train, the blood, sweat, and tears you put into this sport for other people’s entertainment. To me and to so many that know and love you, you’re still and forever will be the champ! You’re the people’s champ and we all know you what you do for our culture. One moment in time does not define your legacy, your legacy is created throughout time and we will continue to do just that. A bump in the road doesn’t stop you from reaching your desired destination! Deontay you are and will always be a King with the tenacious heart of a warrior who has elevated the Heavyweight division back to its glory days in the US, you’ve never backed down and never will from any opponent and I am confident you will fulfill all of your dreams! And the journey continues with the same end goal, “One face one name one champ” !
“I love you, the kids love you, and you are loved by so many. Continue to give god the glory so we can get back our belt! @bronzebomber #WilderFury3 here we come!!”.
