Tyson Fury Had A Priceless Reaction When Watching Back Deontay Wilder's Ring Walk
Fury handed Wilder the first defeat of his professional career back in February and the fallout from the fight involved a lot of chatter about Wilder's ring walk gear.
The 'Bronze Bomber' entered the STAPLES Center in a suit of armour that weighed 40lbs and he said he 'lost his legs' wearing the heavy uniform.
Fury watched his rival's ring walk back for the first time for BT Sport's What Went Down and when asked about his first thoughts, the 'Gypsy King' cheekily replied: "I thought to myself he looks absolutely lovely, and he's gonna look a right joke when I knock him out in a minute and he has to walk all the way back out the ring carrying it in his hands!"
Fury outclassed Wilder in the ring en route to claiming the WBC heavyweight title and he may have gotten into his rival's head before the bell rang.
The Brit was carried to the ring while sat on a throne dressed like a king, with Patsy Cline's 'Crazy' echoing around the stadium.
When asked about his own entrance, Fury explained:
"I thought of the entrance Steve! I thought to myself 'Who else other than a crazy person could come out to Patsy Cline, Crazy?'

"I've been through all the mental health struggles and continue to do it so I thought the song was quite fitting, 'Crazy' for a crazy man.
"Obviously I'm dressed as a king because I am the Gypsy King, on the throne."
The fans in Los Angeles were on Fury's side and the 31-year-old discussed how he felt seeing the sold-out crowd.
"I can see them and hear them and I'm taking it all in, enjoying the atmosphere absolutely loving it because it's my time to shine.

"This is my show business moment, I've done all the hard work, all those people came to see the Gypsy King so I was always going to deliver a fantastic performance for them."
Fury did deliver a fantastic performance and clinched a seventh round TKO victory.
The duo are likely to go at it again in a trilogy bout sometime in the next year.
