We've come to expect the unexpected from anything we see or hear from Tyson Fury.

But a video on Twitter, posted by one of Fury's team, has shown just how the Gypsy King prepared for his WBC heavyweight title bout against Deontay Wilder last Saturday.

Standing in the middle of his dressing room, donned with black cubby holes and surrounded by members of his team, including Frank Warren perched on a chair in the corner, 6'9 Fury starts a rendition of Chris Stepleton's hit Tennessee Whisky.

Bounding up and down and all around his changing room, the undefeated Fury in his black shorts with the gold waistband branded 'the Gypsy King', smiles away pretending to play an air guitar.

He lumbers over to one of his smiling, probably somewhat confused team, and says 'come on Tim' with a resounding smile on his face.

Watch the rest for yourself further down this article.

The fight itself certainly lived up to the hype, as Fury defied a knockdown in the final round when it looked for all the world he would be stuck on canvas. 

The bout ended in a remarkable draw, with the judges undecided and boxing experts and fans around the world baffled how Alejandro Rochin awarded the fight 115-111 in Wilder's favour.

In more post-fight revelations, Tyson Fury won the hearts of the nation as he branded his comeback 'iconic' and dedicated his efforts to all those suffering with mental health and claimed mental health sufferers as part of his team.

But what next?

A rematch is of course on the cards for these two.

Whether it be in the States once again or back in the UK, Fury and Wilder part two is another treat for boxing fans around the world to drool over.

Most probably before that rematch, is the small matter of Anthony Joshua's IBF, WBO and WBA heavyweight titles, which he is due to defend once again in April 2019.

Both men are sparring once again, this time in the fight to face Joshua first. Whichever man wins the race, April is looking like another tasty encounter in a star-studded heavyweight division.
