Following their controversial draw in 2018, Tyson Fury wanted to leave no doubt in his rematch with Deontay Wilder last night in Las Vegas, and he put a beating on his rival, taking the WBC title via dominant seventh round stoppage.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO) is well-known as one of boxing’s most colorful characters in recent memory, and part of that has come from his love of singing in the ring after a victory. He did so again on Saturday at the MGM Grand, leading his team and a largely pro-Fury crowd in a rendition of Don McLean’s classic “American Pie.”
This one was more special than usual, with the crowd strongly singing along with Fury, who had conquered Wilder in one-sided fashion, firing up an already-passionate crowd even more. He gave the fans who traveled from overseas something truly special tonight, and sent them home — or at least onto the streets of Sin City — as happy as possible.
