Fury explained: "I said 'well done, mate' and he said 'I don't want to show any sportsmanship or respect.' I said 'No problem.' I was very surprised. Sore loser. Idiot."
He added: "He's got no love for me, Deontay Wilder, and do you know why? Because I beat him three times, but I will pray for him so that God will soften his heart."
While on the fight itself, Fury said: "It was a great fight tonight, worthy of the best trilogies.
"I will not make any excuses, Wilder is a top fighter, he gave me a run for my money. I always say I am the best fighter in the world and he is the second-best.
"Don't ever doubt me. When the chips are down I can always deliver."
Fury retained his WBC heavyweight title but only after rising from the canvas twice before knocking out Wilder at the T-Mobile Arena.
