Tyson Fury became the WBC heavyweight champion of the world when he toppled Deontay Wilder on Saturday night – and the Gypsy King has been presented with a spectacular cake to mark the occasion.
Fury produced a sensational performance in Las Vegas, knocking Wilder to the canvas twice before the latter’s trainer Mark Breland threw the towel in the seventh round.
By taking the American’s WBC strap, the only heavyweight title that had evaded him, Fury has become a two-time world champion.
And to celebrate his iconic win at the MGM Grand Arena, Fury has received an extravagant cake that includes a golden crown and the green WBC belt in its design.

Fury’s wife, Paris, posted snaps on her Instagram profile of the cake – which has the words ‘Gypsy King’ sitting just above the WBC belt.
A crown similar to the one Fury wore to the ring in Sin City is then perched on top of the earth, symbolising the seismic victory he picked up last weekend.
Along with pictures of the cake, Paris wrote: “Just a little cake to celebrate bringing back the WBC belt. @gypsyking101”.

Saturday night’s stunning victory in the States really was the cherry on top for Fury after completing an inspirational comeback to the sport.
The Brit battled with numerous mental health issues in the aftermath of his win over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, leading to drink and drug abuse which saw him balloon to almost 400lbs in weight.
His father, John, opened up on those dark days during an appearance on ITV’s Good Morning Britain this week.

“It was a dark time,” he said.
“When you see a man that was drinking himself to death to escape reality and he was eating all kinds of food and a bucket load – and he was doing it in front of you.
“When your son stops caring what you think, a father and a parent, that’s time to worry.”

But John has urged his son to retire following Saturday’s triumph, saying: "I want my son to retire now. He’s done enough to prove.
“It’s been an uphill battle for him. He’s done enough. I want him to pack it in now. I think it’s in the back of his mind. He can’t do anymore. Enough is enough. He’s given all.”
