Did Tyson Fury lick Deontay Wilder’s blood? That appeared to be the case during his seventh-round TKO victory on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.
In the sixth round, Fury bloodied Wilder’s ear and seemed to lick the blood off his shoulder in a bizarre scene.
If that wasn’t enough craziness, Fury tried to lead the crowd in a singalong of “American Pie” after the fight. Of course, he knew all the words.
Fury (30-1, 21 KO) — who dropped Deontay Wilder twice Saturday in this widely anticipated rematch — became the WBC heavyweight champion again. It was the first loss for Wilder, who is now 42-1-1 with 41 knockouts. Their first fight on Dec. 1, 2018 was a controversial draw, allowing Wilder to retain his crown.
“The king has returned to his throne,” proclaimed Fury, who fought to a draw with Wilder in their first fight.
The colorful boxer, known as the Gypsy King, also has performed in the WWE ring.
