Tony Bellew tweets in awe of Tyson Fury after he defeats Deontay Wilder in rematch

MTK Global Golden Contract - Featherweight and Super Lightweight: Semi-Finals

Despite retiring from boxing, Tony Bellew is still very vocal in the sport with his analysis of big fights, and that hasn't changed in the aftermath of the Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury rematch.

The Bomber, who had a successful move up to heavyweight himself when he fought David Haye twice, has taken to Twitter to praise his fellow Brit for his impressive performance against the WBC champion.

Fury was the slight underdog going into the rematch, with the bookies believing it was the American's to lose, however, from the get-go it was very clear who was in the driver's seat.

The Gypsy King schooled Wilder from the opening bell, and in round seven, the American's corner decided to throw in the towel.

It was clear Wilder was less than impressed with the decision, but he really can't complain. He was bleeding from the ear, he was backed up in the corner, and Fury was landing punch after punch onto him.

It was very clear Wilder wasn't at his best, with him failing to land any significant blows on Fury, but more has to be said about the Brit's performance.

He schooled the WBC champion and looked at ease doing it.

In the aftermath of the fight, plenty of former pros have reacted to the result, and Bellew is no different, tweeting: "Punch perfect from Tyson Fury! That’s boxing at the highest level!

"In and out of range an dictated the pace throughout the whole fight!

"Huge credit to Wilder for the bravery he showed cos he was gone from round 3 onwards. There’s only ONE FIGHT the world wants now!"

That one fight the world wants now? Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury, and Bellew signalled that by ending his tweet with '#AJvTF'

Make it happen, Anthony and Tyson! We all want it!
