The Gypsy King shared the post with a handshake emoji and said: “The greatest trilogy ever.”

Wilder uploaded a photo of her in her red gown before the showdown and wrote: “Wow, what a night!

“I want to thank God first and foremost for allowing me to give the world another part of me that is driven by passion and determination.

“I want to thank my team and my fans for being with me through this long process.

“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed in the outcome, but after reflecting on my journey, I now see that what God wanted me to experience is much greater than I expected.

“We didn’t win but a wise man once said that victory is within the lesson. I have learned that sometimes you have to lose to win.

“While I wanted to win, I enjoyed seeing the fans win even more.

“Hopefully, I proved that I am a true warrior and a true king in this sport.

“Hopefully, we’ve proved that no matter how hard trials and tribulations you face, you can always lift yourself up to live and fight again for what you believe in.

“Last but not least I want to congratulate @gypsyking101 on their victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.”

After accusing his opponent of cheating on his February 2020 win, Wilder had twice restored his reputation as the Fury before committing suicide late in Saturday’s Instant Classic.

But the battered and injured American blew away his chance to turn the iconic rivalry into a spectacular fighting friendship with his demeanor in the ring, as Fury lashed out at him for not congratulating his winner.

But Wilder’s co-manager Shelley Finkel insists the ex-champion genuinely respects Fury, and would now be ready to accept the offer of peace.

Finkel told SunSport: “He and I have talked about it and he does (respect Fury).

“I think his mind wasn’t really, I think if Deontay saw Fury now he would give him a big hug.”

There were fears that Wilder would retire from boxing after a wild fight where he suffered multiple injuries including fractures to his hand, finger and finger, which would be operated on next week.

But Finkel has confirmed that the 42-2-1 brawler will return in late April or May – and is eyeing the next Anthony Joshua.

Wilder has been denied an accelerated ring return after receiving a six-month ban by medics.

Fury retweeted the post and called their trilogy the 'greatest of all time'.
