Tyson Fury's message to Deontay Wilder in the ring after rematch was class

Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury taught Deontay Wilder a lesson in their highly-anticipated rematch in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

The Gypsy King won the WBC heavyweight belt many believe he deserved when they first fought in December 2018.

Fury was clinical and composed as he cruised to a seventh-round TKO win.

"I told everybody with a pair of ears that the Gypsy King would return to the throne,” Fury assessed after the fight, per BBC Sport.

And there he now sits, on top of the world and with Anthony Joshua in his sights after a spectacular showing.

Ever the sportsman, Fury offered some words of class to Wilder after the bout was called to a halt.

“What a fighter, what a fighter you are,” Fury said to his opponent in footage captured by BT Sport.

“Anybody you land on…

“Let me tell you something, in that first round… dynamite.

“God bless you and your family.”

Class from Fury, who has just completed one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history.

The 31-year-old overcame depression, weight issues and a battle with drugs to reach the pinnacle of his sport.


And more could be to come with a potential all-British clash against Joshua.

Everyone wants to see a unifying bout between Fury and Joshua and Eddie Hearn wants to make it happen as soon as possible.

Joshua’s promoter told Sky Sports: “Fury was brilliant, and the tactics from [his trainers] Sugarhill Steward and Andy Lee were spot on.

"For me, we should go straight into AJ v Fury next. No one wants to see a third fight [between Fury and Wilder]."

What are you waiting for, Eddie? Get it done.
