Fans in agreement after damning footage of Tyson Fury's corner at the end of round 10 emerges

Fans in agreement after damning footage of Tyson Fury's corner at the end of round 10 emerges

Fury suffered the first defeat of his professional career on Saturday night.

Footage from Tyson Fury's corner at the end of round 10 has become a huge talking point following his split-decision defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.

Fury suffered the first loss of his professional career on Saturday night as Usyk was crowned the new undisputed world heavyweight champion in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The Ukrainian fighter now holds the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO belts as the scorecards read 115-112 to Usyk, 114-113 to Usyk, and 114-113 to Furya decision that sparked controversy.

Fury, however, was convinced he'd won the fight and even appeared to accuse the judges of siding with former cruiserweight champion Usyk because the country of Ukraine is “at war”.

Speaking in the ring afterwards, he said: “I believe I won that fight. I believe he won a few of the rounds, but I won majority of them. And I believe it was – what can you do? – one of them decisions in boxing.

"We’ve both put on a good fight. Best we could do. And, you know, his country’s at war. So people are siding with a country at war. But make no mistake, I’ve won that fight in my opinion, and I’ll be back. We’ve got a rematch clause."

Fury's team were also positive about his performance – even if he did suffer a damaging knockdown in round nine. In fact, at the end of round 10, his corner said: "Win these two rounds and you've won the fight."

Footage of his corner soon emerged online and many fans were in agreement.

One fan wrote: "What an absolute shambles. John Fury shouting over Sugar Hill, Andy Lee telling him he was winning and interrupting Sugar Hill. Complete mess. Embarrassing at any level. Usyk’s corner was controlled, concise and clear."

A second commented: "Imagine you’re being battered and you’ve got five men screaming mixed messages to you," while another wrote: "Too much noise in the corner."

A fourth said: "Three voices in one corner is asking for trouble, especially when two are family members. The head trainer should be the only voice heard. If I’d have been him, I’d have told the other two to shut up."

A fifth added: "Sugar wanted Tyson to engage, John said 'don't get involved', and Andy said box him and you've won the fight. Utter madness in the corner. Sugar's face during the post-fight press conference spoke volumes."

After the bout, three-time world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis accused Fury of boxing "like he won the fight."

He added: “No boxer can judge and say they won the fight. Every time a round was close they should look at it like a loss."
