Tyson Fury Captured Raving In Las Vegas Hours After Knocking Deontay Wilder Out
After slugging it out for 11 rounds with Deontay Wilder, you would have forgiven Tyson Fury for going back to his hotel room to chill out with a bit of room service, but we are talking about the Gypsy King here.
The 33-year-old stood topless, taking centre stage at a rave at the Hakkasan nightclub, next to the MGM Grand, the scene of Fury's win over Wilder. The video was originally posted on social media by his wife, Paris, and the old adage of 'work hard, play hard' is certainly being followed here.
No way Tyson Fury is raving after going through a 11 round boxing match against Wilder:joy:

Fury also reportedly sang along to 'We Are The Champions' by Queen, along with his sparring team. American DJ, Aoki ran the set, and it was the second time the pair partied together after Fury's previous win over Wilder in February 2020.
It has become customary for Fury to celebrate each victory in style, and The Sun recounted Fury's previous trip to Hakkasan, dressed in an eye-catching floral suit.
He also previously attended a pool party in the US gambling capital after his KO triumph over Tom Schwarz in 2019.
Turning back to the present day, Fury certainly has plenty to celebrate; he is on course to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 2000.
He now has WBF, IBF and WBO titles in his sights - currently held by Oleksandr Usyk following the Ukrainian's shock victory over Anthony Joshua. But a rematch is on the cards first, before any fight with Fury can be agreed.
Fury feels he now has little to prove when talk turns to who is the current greatest heavyweight champion of the modern era. He told BBC Sport: "I am the greatest heavyweight champion of my era, without a doubt. Number one. If you play with fire long enough you will get burned."
