Mike Tyson And Lennox Lewis React To Tyson Fury’s Sensational Performance Against Deontay Wilder

Boxing legends Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis have praised Tyson Fury and his camp for their stunning victory over Deontay Wilder last Saturday.

Brit superstar Fury, 31, put on a relentless performance as he dropped Wilder twice and stripped the feared KO artist of the WBC championship.

Both Tyson and Lewis were in attendance for the event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and were honoured ahead of the fight.

But the two boxing legends have now taken to social media and praised Fury for his sensational victory in the blockbuster rematch.

'Iron' Mike, who was spotted celebrating Fury's win on the night, praised the 'Gypsy King' for his one-sided dominance in the fight.

"Dominant performance champ @Tyson_Fury," he tweeted out to his 5.3m Twitter followers.

Meanwhile, Lewis hailed the impact of Fury's trainer, Javan 'SugarHill' Steward, and the Kronk Gym in the systematic dismantling of former WBC champ Wilder.

'SugarHill,' who is the nephew of the legendary Hall of Fame trainer Emanuel Steward, was appointed Fury's trainer after the WBC champ split with Ben Davison.

But he made a bombshell admission after the Wilder fight that he might retire.

"I'm thinking about retiring after this fight -- there's nothing left for me to do," 'SugarHill' told BT Sport.

"I might go home, back to Detroit, and train amateurs. Bring up some more champions."

Fury, who dominated on the scorecards before the fight was stopped, secured a superb seventh-round stoppage to hand Wilder the only professional defeat of his career.

The newly-crowned WBC champ has said that he would welcome a third fight with Wilder, who does have the option to activate a rematch clause.
