    Sit back and enjoy the celebrations in the ring after Fury's fantastic win.


    Fury's former foe Wladimir Klitschko appears to be happy by his win over Deontay Wilder judging by his social media activity.

    The Ukrainian legend – who was dethroned by the Gypsy King in 2015 – simply tweeted two emojis in a nod of approval to the Brit.


    Tyson Fury will claim yet another mega pay cheque if Deontay Wilder takes up the option to make their rivalry a trilogy.

    The pair fought to a dramatic draw in December 2018 before a seventh-round technical knockout earned Fury victory in the rematch on Sunday morning.

    Las Vegas' MGM Grand was packed to the rafters for the WBC world clash match and record ticket receipts of £13million were brought home.

    That offers just a glimpse into the total income from this duel with pay-per-view money still to be announced.

    The pot was officially split 50/50 given that neither boxer held the advantage after their initial stalemate.

    But the deal to bring them back into the ring featured a rematch clause that will be tilted in the victor, Fury's, favour.

    The Gypsy King is set to earn 60 per cent of the take should he battle Wilder for a third time.


    Tyson Fury obliterated Deontay Wilder to be crowned the new WBC heavyweight champ – and the punch stats emphasise the dominance.

    Fury won EVERY ROUND on two of the judges' scorecards, and the fights stats from Compubox tell the story.

    Fury threw more than double the amount of punches as Wilder.

    Over the six-and-a-bit rounds the newly-crowned heavyweight king landed 82 of 267 punches thrown, a 30.7 per cent strike rate.

    Of these 24 were jabs and 58 were power punches.

    Wilder only landed 34 of 141 – a 24.1 per cent effort. Sixteen were jabs and 18 were power punches.


    Everyone wanted to see a piece of the Gypsy King in Las Vegas, and fans were treated to a fight that will go down in history.
