There aren’t many heavyweight champions who, after 11 grueling rounds to win the biggest fight of their careers, come out rave.
But, then again, there aren’t many heavyweight champions like Tyson Fury.
Tyson Fury celebrated victory in title fight
Fury put his fans to the test again, getting knocked down not once, but twice by Wilder at the start of a thrilling trilogy showdown that certainly lived up to the bill.
But, for the second time against the American, the Briton dominated with his superior boxing ability and a flurry of punches to inflict a first straight knockout loss of his career to the Bronze Bomber.
The victory secured Fury’s place in history as one of the best heavyweight fighters, with promoter Frank Warren hailing the Gypsy King as “the greatest of his generation.”
After the fight, which he also dubbed the best heavyweight clash he’s ever seen, Warren foreshadowed a night on the town to celebrate Fury’s retention of his titles.

Speaking to talkSPORT, the 69-year-old said: “We’re just doing a press conference and then we went out.
” We went out ! “
Lo and behold, the 33-year-old heavyweight champion was then filmed partying at a Las Vegas club, just hours after his historic victory on Saturday night.
In the video – filmed by his wife, Paris – Fury is shirtless on stage at Hakkasan nightclub, located next to the MGM Grand – the venue where Fury defeated Wilder for the second time in a mega-light trilogy.
Fury knocked out his opponent in the 11th round, after a grueling outing against the Bronze Bomber.
It clearly wasn’t as exhausting as it looked, however, with Fury partying with DJ Steve Aoki until the early hours of the morning.
He did the same after his last win over Wilder in February 2020, then celebrating his victory in style.
His opponent, Wilder, was taken to hospital.
The American’s face was bloodied and beaten by Fury, who took control of the fight as his big rival began to tire.
Wilder was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution, but it was confirmed that he did not stay the night.

Boxing reporter Dan Rafael tweeted: “I was texting Wilder’s manager, Shelly Finkel.
“Said Deontay is fine and will not be spending the night in the hospital.” “
Wilder was knocked down three times in combat and repeatedly received heavy blows from his opponent.
His resilience meant he continued into the penultimate round, before Fury landed a devastating knockout.
Fury was knocked out twice by Wilder in their trilogy fight
But, just like in their famous first fight, Fury kept on his feet and managed to land the decisive blow in the 11th round.
The American fighter said after the fight, “I did my best, but it wasn’t good enough tonight. I am not sure what happened.
“I know in training he did some things, and I also knew he didn’t reach 277 pounds to be a ballet dancer.
“He came to lean on me, tried to brutalize me and he succeeded. “
