So much respect :clap: #WilderFury2 pic.twitter.com/zcKMjMxAYe
'The Gypsy King' shocked the world in Las Vegas by downing Wilder in rounds three and five before the American's corner threw in the towel during the seventh.
A vicious shot to the temple in round three floored the 34-year-old and potentially left him with a ruptured ear drum.
Wilder had repeatedly called Fury 'pillow fist' in the build-up to the fight, mocking his striking ability.
It's a claim that Fury was quick to mock after being crowned victor last night.

At the post-fight presser, the 31-year-old recalled per talkSPORT: "Don't forget, when I came here they said I can't punch.
"Deontay Wilder said himself that I've got two pillow fists.
"But you know, not bad for an old fat guy who can't punch, eh? Done alright, didn't I?
"I'm an old feather duster who can't break an egg."
Wilder has 30 days to activate his automatic rematch clause but Fury has made it known who's next in his sights.
Fury responded to a question about a potential unification bout with Anthony Joshua by saying 'If Deontay don't want the rematch, then let's go AJ.'
Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn also took to social media following the fight and called for a fight between the two Brits.
Fury told iFL TV that he would spend Saturday night partying after finally defeating his longtime rival.
"I might have a slice of pizza. I done all the celebrating for three years didn't I - there's not much I can do in my life worth celebrating.
"I think I'll go home and have a few glasses of water - that's it really. We're going to go out tonight baby. Hakkasan."
