We all know Floyd Mayweather to be many things, but humble and motivating isn’t usually traits we’re familiar with.

Many were quick to criticize Deontay Wilder for his performance and even denigrate his world title run but Mayweather took to Instagram to defend the former WBA Heavyweight champion after his stunning loss to Tyson Fury.

“Win, Lose or Draw…. Deontay @BronzeBomber is our brother that has accomplished many triumphs and as a community we should all uplift and support him throughout it all. No matter what, you’re still a winner in my eyes, King!” Mayweather wrote.

Wilder is still one of the top three heavyweights on the planet and shouldn’t be ashamed about the loss. Wilder will invoke his rematch clause and a third fight will happen.

All jokes aside, boxing is a brutal sport and 40 wins and 1 loss record isn’t something to ever be assamed off.
