Tyson Fury shared an intimate moment with wife Paris in the ring after dispatching Deontay Wilder to win the WBC heavyweight championship. Fury won in the seventh round with a TKO after putting on a masterclass in Las Vegas.
Fury wowed the Vegas crowed with both his boxing performance and then his signing with a rendition of American Pie.
He then shared a moment with wife Paris, who has been by his side through the good and the bad, in the ring.
The pair looked into each other’s eyes as they took in the jubilation of his achievements.
Afterwards Fury said: “A big shout out to Deontay Wilder. He came here tonight and he manned up and he really did show the heart of a champion.
“I hit him with a clean right that dropped him and he got back up. He is a warrior. He will be back. He will be champion again.

“But I will say, the king has returned to the top of the throne!”
Wilder admitted he was beaten by a better man after struggling to deal with Fury’s tempo and front-foot strategy.
He said: “The best man won on the night.
“My coach threw in the towel but I’m ready to go out on my shield.
“I had a lot of things go on coming into this fight but it is what it is.
“I just wish my corner would have let me go out on my shield, I’m a warrior. But he [Fury] did what he did and there’s no excuses.”
Eddie Hearn has hinted an a fight with Anthony Joshua is not far off.
He tweeted: “No need for a third let’s go straight to it in the Summer! #undisputed”
An undisputed fight would put AJ against Fury for all the belts after Joshua won his straps back against Andy Ruiz in December.
Joshua is expected to fight Kubrat Pulev in London, but Fury could put a spanner in those works.
