Tyson Fury Sings American Pie After Incredible Win Against Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury celebrated his win over Deontay Wilder in the only way he knows, by singing for the whole crowd.

The Gypsy King became WBC world champion by dominating former champ Wilder for seven rounds, twice knocking him to the canvas, before the Bronze Bomber's corner threw the towel in to end the fight.

Following the win Fury took the microphone off the interviewer in the ring and proceeded to sing 'American Pie,' with the crowd joining in, and the highlight was seeing 88-year-old Top Rank promoter Bob Arum singing too.

Fury went into the fight saying he would make sure the judges, who he felt controversially cost him the first fight, wouldn't be a factor and would knock Wilder out.

The American had never been beaten in his professional career and had never even been knocked down, whilst he also held the best knockout percentage in heavyweight history.

Wilder claimed his opponent had 'pillow hands' but he must have soon regretted that analysis of his opponent on Saturday night.

The Manchester born boxer went on the front foot straight from the opening bell and forced the home country fighter onto the back foot for one of the first occasions of his career.

The Las Vegas crowd were well behind Fury and the support only grew stronger as he landed the bigger and better punches.

Fury put his opponent down in the third round to hand him a 10-8 round and Wilder actually hit the canvas a second time in the round but it was correctly deemed a slip by the referee.

The American was once again on the floor in the next round, which was another slip, before a right-left combination from Fury put him down again in the fifth.

Wilder somehow survived, although that's all he was doing, before more good work on the ropes by Fury eventually led to the 33-year-old's corner throwing the towel in, something the boxer wasn't too pleased with afterwards, saying he wanted to 'fall on his sword.'
