Tyson Fury Hilariously Cheers Himself On As He Rewatches His Famous Victory Over Wladimir Klitschko

Tyson Fury Hilariously Cheers Himself On As He Rewatches His Famous Victory Over Wladimir Klitschko

Tyson Fury celebrated the anniversary of his stunning upset over Wladimir Klitschko by posting a hilarious clip of him cheering himself on in the fight.

The 31-year-old Brit superstar defied the odds as he travelled to Germany in 2015 and dethroned the once-mighty Klitschko from the top of the heavyweight division.

And Fury has returned to that famous night four years later with his children as he filmed the end of the ring entrances and cheered himself on.

"Go on the 'Gypsy King,'" he yelled in a clip that was posted on Wednesday.

"Tomorrow, four years to be precise tomorrow.

"Happy anniversary, 'Gypsy King.' Happy anniversary, Wladimir Klitschko."

The 'Gypsy King' also celebrated his historic milestone in a separate Instagram post today, saying it will be a moment he "will never forget."

Fury posted a picture of him toying with the Ukrainian and wrote: "On this day I defeated 1 of boxing's most dominant heavyweight champions in history, @klitschko in my life time I will never forget. 28/11/2015."

The Brit was scheduled to rematch Klitschko in 2016 in his hometown of Manchester, but the clash was scuppered as Fury began his long battle with mental health and drugs and alcohol abuse.

During an appearance on Hotboxin' With Mike Tyson in September, Fury opened up about his victory over Klitschko turning his life into a "disaster."

He explained: "I suppose I suffered with depression and anxiety my whole life, from being a little boy to being a man.

"But I always had a goal of becoming heavyweight champion of the world.

"It always brought me back out of the darkness to achieve that goal and nothing else mattered. I had a lot of tragedy in my life and a lot of stuff happen.

"All that maybe could have put me off track of becoming heavyweight champ, but I always sidetracked all of that and concentrated on the job in hand.

"When they said, 'Right, you're going to fight Klitschko for the world championship,' I was like, 'Hmm. When I win, I'm not going to have a goal anymore.'

"So, I almost knew going into the fight that I was going to come down. That it was going to be a disaster."
