Although many fans have turned their backs on former world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder after losing his rematch to Tyson Fury for his controversial comments, Andre Ward says he still respects the Bronze Bomber.
According to Ward, he does justice to the fact that Wilder was successful despite the late start of his career, and was not afraid to take the challenge of Tyson Fury.
“I respect Wilder for being late in his career. Super heavyweights are often capable of this, but for lighter weights it is harder. I respect him not only for this, but also for his willingness to fight with number two and the most difficult opponent in Boxing sorely lacks guys who are willing to open the door for another top fighter in his division. Wilder went for it, “- said Andre Ward in an interview with Max Kellerman.
As a reminder, Ward also criticized Wilder for blaming his former coach Mark Briland for his defeat at Fury without any evidence.
