President Trump Invites Fury and Wilder to the White House
It felt like the entire world witnessed the rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury. The event was massive and felt larger than life. Of course, celebrities were in attendance and many different walks of life witnessed one of the biggest bouts of all time. Another spectator of the massive event was United States President Donald Trump. And, due to him being impressed by the bout, both men will be invited to the White House.
Fury vs Wilder II
From the opening bell and until the end of the fight, Fury brought the action. He pushed the pace, kept forward movement, and used all 270lbs of himself to grind down Wilder. Also, he used his trademark off-balance movement and clean technical skill to catch Deontay and make him feel uncomfortable fighting off of his back foot.
Ultimately, Fury was able to corner Wilder and unleash a flurry of shots that ended the bout. Primarily due to injuries that it looked like Wilder sustained throughout the fight, and maybe even before it began. Which, according to Wilder, the costume that he wore during his walkout had something to do with the performance.

He relayed the message to reporters via the New York Post.
“That was a great fight,” said President Trump.“Two great fighters. It was really very exciting. “Maybe we have to bring them both to the White House — I don’t know — because that was really a good one. I think we’ll do that,” finished President Trump.

Fury’s father also thinks it’s time for his son to retire from sports as he had achieved everything and meeting with Trump would be a great occasion to say goodbye to this.

Electing to Accept the Invitation
Recently, we’ve seen many professional athletes who were invited to the White House declined the offer due to their own personal beliefs. However, some have accepted the nod. Whether or not Fury or Wilder will accept the invitation remains to be seen. Regardless, President Trump continues to make his love for combat sports very clear.
