Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury praised God for his most recent title win over Deontay Wilder.
“I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In the mighty name of Jesus in this fight again tonight, ”said Fury in an interview after the game.
The match went on for 11 rounds, and there was a point where Fury thought he was no longer tallied.
“I was injured. Wilder is a tough puncher and tough man,” he added. “I hit him with some big shots. My Lord and Savior rose to my feet tonight to do him the honor. “
Fury also said he would pray for his opponent after the fight.
“Deontay Wilder is a top fighter. He gave me a real run for my money. I’ve always said that I’m the best in the world and he’s second best, ”said Fury. “He doesn’t love me because you know why. Because I hit him three times. And he says, ‘I am an athlete.’ I went to him to show him some love and respect and he didn’t want to give it back. So that’s his problem. I will pray for him that God may soften his heart. “
After the game, Fury wore a hat that read “Jesus: El Rey Viene”, a Spanish expression that means “Jesus the King is coming”.
Fury isn’t the only fighter who professes faith in Jesus Christ.
UFC champion Rose Namajunas previously honored God for becoming the strawweight champion.
As Movieguide® reports:
“I did it again, but God did it,” said Namajunas Joe Rogan in an interview after the game. “I really just had to believe in Him, but that got me through.” …
Namajunas also invite their fans to join their faith. In December 2020, Namajunas made a live stream on YouTube that gave people the opportunity to pray.
“The power of prayer, boys. No matter what is happening. . . There is a lot of madness, God is at the center, and that’s where peace is found. When you find this center, this peace in the midst of it all – that is the whole goal, ”said Namajunas.
