Unseen footage shows mood in Tyson Fury's dressing room before Deontay Wilder win


Tyson Fury's comprehensive victory over Deontay Wilder will go down in sporting history. 

The Gypsy King defeated the Bronze Bomber by TKO inside seven rounds in Las Vegas to finally settle the question on the lips of boxing fans since their initial bout in December 2018. 

The manner of Fury's triumph was astonishing, not least because he restricted Wilder to such an extent that he was unrecognisable from the big-hitter who has dominated so many in the division. 

With the American stifled, Fury's pace and movement were simply too much for him and he can only hope he gets the chance to avenge his defeat in a potential third leg of their trilogy. 

However, Fury naturally has eyes on unification and there are already talks that he could face Anthony Joshua by the summer. 

We say his victory was astonishing, but that's only to the outside world.

Within the Fury camp, the mood - at least publicly - was relaxed and the man himself appeared hugely confident that he wouldn't be thwarted by the judges this time around. 

Indeed, boxing journalist Gareth Davies has uploaded previously unseen footage of the British heavyweight in his dressing room before the fight which shows just how at ease he was. 

Promoter Frank Warren and his brother Shane Fury can also be seen helping with his preparations.

Of course, Fury always talks the talk and the fact he was dancing away to James Brown after his briefing with referee Kenny Bayless doesn't necessarily mean he wasn't wary of his upcoming opponent. 

The 31-year-old was right to be confident though as he subsequently went on to put on a boxing masterclass. 

Wilder was brushed aside so emphatically - the former WBC champ suffering a burst eardrum that needed stitches, a broken jaw and a badly gashed lip - that Fury is right to be turning his attention elsewhere. 

A decisive challenge to AJ's belts is now the fight we all want to see.
