Fury pokes fun at Wilder with song during world title victory afterparty

Tyson Fury aimed a light-hearted jibe at Deontay Wilder as he celebrated his world heavyweight title win.

Fury was crowned the WBC champ after stopping Wilder in the seventh round – twice knocking him down to the deck before the towel was thrown in.

Following the essential post-fight duties, Fury headed off to popular Vegas night spot Hakkasan for the after party.

The Gypsy King was joined by friends, families, celebrities and more.

Hakkasan has previously held big Vegas after parties – and only recently was the venue of Conor McGregor's post-victory jaunt following his fight with Donald Cerrone.

In a video from inside the venue, Fury is seen on the DJ booth, grabbing the microphone and then breaking into song.

To the tune of 'She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain', Fury sings: "There were three Bronze Bombers in the air."

It was then followed by: "And then The Gypsy King from England came and shot one down".

At the afterparty, Fury is wearing a suit emblazoned with pictures of himself.

He also draped a Union Jack flag over him as he played to a largely-British crowd at the venue.

Fury led chants from the DJ booth before disappearing off to take photos with fans and celebrities.

It has become something of a trademark for Fury to sing at the end of his big fights and this was no different.

He sang American Pie to fans in the arena before his afterparty singsong.

Fourteen months on from his controversial draw with Wilder – when he outboxed the champion only for two knockdowns to deny him the famous green belt – Fury had vowed to take the fight to the American.

He did just that, flooring the champion twice and completely dominating the action before referee Kenny Bayless stepped in to save the despairing, bewildered Wilder from more punishment.

Disappointed Wilder was upset that his corner threw in the towel.

Fury's afterparty was a little against how he suggested he would be spending the night.

He said: "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."

Let's be honest, nobody really believed him, did they?
