Topless Tyson Fury parties on Las Vegas stage after Deontay Wilder knockout win
Tyson Fury celebrated his stunning knockout victory over Deontay Wilder by dancing topless on a stage at a nightclub in Las Vegas.
Fury, 33, knocked out Wilder in the 11th round of their captivating heavyweight clash at the T-Mobile Arena.
The Gypsy King was sent to the canvas twice in the fourth round but regained control of the fight before stopping Wilder late on in brutal fashion.
Following the knockout, Fury insisted he was not interested in talking about future fights and intended to celebrate the Wilder victory with his team and family.
Team Fury headed to Las Vegas’ Hakkasan nightclub after the bout and Fury soon joined DJ and close pal Steve Aoki in the DJ booth, where the fighter sang songs and pulled out some shadow boxing.
Fury, who ended his in-ring interview with a rendition of Marc Cohn’s ‘Walking in Memphis’, was seen partying with his wife Paris, brother Tommy and trainer SugarHill Steward.
Reacting to his thrilling victory over Wilder, Fury said: ‘I was down a couple of times, I was hurt. Wilder is a strong puncher.
‘It was a great fight. 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’s promoter, Frank Warren, hailed his fighter’s performance in Las Vegas and called the bout the ‘greatest heavyweight fight ever’.
‘It was historic, wasn’t it? I’ve got to be honest, that’s the best live heavyweight fight I’ve ever seen,’ Warren told talkSPORT.
‘It was just amazing. Both of them showed such courage, they’re true warriors and it takes two guys to make a fight like that and you have to take your hat off to both of them.
‘Tyson has now established himself as the best heavyweight of his generation, in my opinion. He always finds something. He is a warrior, he’s just a tough guy and he will not be denied.
‘In the last round of the first fight when he went down, I thought it was all over, I don’t know how how he got up from that.
‘But this one, this was just unbelievable. I know to win this fight Wilder would have to come and fight him, throw bombs at him, and that’s what he did. It became almost a shoot-out between them.
‘He’s unbelievable, he’s probably got the best chin in the heavyweight division in the last 40 odd years.
‘Other guys getting hit by the statistically hardest puncher in the heavyweight derision, in Deontay Wilder, and that’s a fact, they would not have got up from that.
‘Only if you’ve got a big chin can you get up, and that’s what Tyson has got. A big heart and a marvellous chin.
‘Each fight has got better and better as far as Tyson is concerned. For me it was heart in mouth at times, but for fans it doesn’t get any better.
‘When I think back to the Ali vs Frazier trilogy, this tonight was something extra special. the whole place were on the edge of the seats.’
