Previously unseen footage shows Tyson Fury's furious reaction backstage after defeat to Oleksandr Usyk

Oleksandr Usyk beat Tyson Fury via split decision last weekend.

Previously unseen footage has emerged which appeared to show Tyson Fury’s reaction after his defeat by Oleksandr Usyk.

Last weekend, Fury and Usyk put on a spectacular show inside the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia as the pair battled to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

In the end, Ukrainian Usyk came out on top after being awarded the win via a split decision.

The 37-year-old is now the first undisputed heavyweight champion of the world since Lennox Lewis in 1999.

A few days after the fight, TNT Sports posted a video which allowed fans a little bit of behind-the-scenes access to the event.

In the video, Fury’s immediate reaction to his defeat was captured as he walked back towards his dressing room.

The Brit was heard saying: “Get up boys. F*****g ripped me off there.

“Listen I won the fight by four or five rounds, but you can never tell when you are in there.”

Speaking after the fight, Fury said: “We punched f**** out of each other for 12 rounds. I'm going to go home, drink some food, drink some beers, have some family time, walk the dog, go to the tip and me and Frank Warren will discuss the future.

“If there's going to be another fight, I think they're talking about October, then we'll rock and roll. I'm not boxing because I've got no money, I'm boxing because I love it.”

He added: “I'm 36 in a few months, I've been boxing since I was a child. Where does it all end? You have 100 fights and you have brain damage and are in a wheelchair?

“For as long as I'm loving the game, I'll continue to do it, and when I don't, I'll pack it up.”

Meanwhile, Usyk said: “Last time when my father saw me was in my dreams. I miss my father and I said to him 'hey listen, you live there and I live here, please don't come for me, I love you.'

“I also missed family holidays. I was only focused on this fight, now I'm happy and I want to go back home.”
