Tyson Fury relived the pulsating final round of his WBC world heavyweight title clash with Deontay Wilder at a recent event and provided priceless alternative commentary.
In front of an audience on stage, Fury rewatched the moment the Bronze Bomber caught him with a wicked shot in the final round and sent the Gypsy King crashing to the canvas in the Staples Center clash.
The 30-year old looked completely done and dusted and literally everyone watching live thought it was lights out.
But at the very last second, Fury sat up and rose to his feet like The Undertaker. Wilder was already celebrating and his reaction when he saw his opponent get up was priceless.
And when it came to analysing the brutal blow Wilder inflicted on him, Fury put it very bluntly for those watching – as footage from Boxing journalist @Umar_iFL shows.
He said: “By the looks of it, what happened, I got knocked the fuck out, that’s what happened! If that man isn’t knocked out, I don’t know what is.
“I haven’t seen anyone knocked out like that before, he’s knocked out for sure. He’s got one leg on the floor, one in the sky, his two arms are out – he looks like a dead chicken.”
Fury would then later talk us how get up and made it through the end of the round, even finishing strong by putting his hands behind his back and hitting Wilder with a left hook and a right hand.
Despite the two knockdowns, the Wythenshawe fighter firmly believes he won the fight and says he was denied the greatest comeback in boxing history by the judges after they scored it a draw.
The WBC initially said he would get an instant rematch following a “unanimous agreement” from their Board of Directors but last night they confirmed a second bout won’t be happening next.
Both Fury and Wilder traded shots at one another on social media in response to the news and it got a bit tasty.
Last week it was announced that Fury had signed a mega £80 million five-fight deal with ESPN and Top Rank boxing, which could prove problematic in getting the rematch with Wilder signed because he is part of rival broadcaster Showtime.
