President Donald Trump has labelled Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder' s fight in Las Vegas on Saturday as 'very exciting'.
And both men have been offered an invitation to the White House to meet the leader of the free world.
Fury made light work of his American opponent, dominating the entire bout before the fight was stopped in round seven.
Wilder is yet to activate his rematch clause but could decide to face his opposite number for a third time.
And the two fighters could see each other at the White House, should they accept Trump's invite.
“You liked it? That was a great fight, two great fighters, it was really very exciting," the US president said while speaking to a press pool before his trip to India.

“That is good for a Fury isn’t it?" he said.
