Mike Tyson sends message to Tyson Fury after dominant Deontay Wilder win

Mike Tyson has sent a message to Tyson Fury after seeing the Brit beat Deontay Wilder and become WBC heavyweight champion of the world.

Tyson was ringside as Fury stopped Wilder in the seventh round after twice knocking down the Bronze Bomber during the bout.

Tyson had been seen looking animated following the victory with Wilder’s corner throwing in the towel to make Fury a two-time world champion.

And now former world champion Tyson, who Fury is named after, has praised the Gypsy King for the show he put on.

In a simple tweet, American boxing legend Tyson wrote: “Dominant performance champ @Tyson_Fury”

Fury dominated the entire bout in Vegas with the Brit meeting Wilder for a second time.

The first fight in December 2018 was controversially drawn with many believing Fury had done enough to earn a points victory.

There was no debating the result this time with Fury back on top of the world having previously been world heavyweight champion back in 2015.

He said: "I have only just started with this style. We will be putting people to sleep right, left and centre.

"I need to enjoy this. Deontay will need time to recover. I am sure he will take a rematch as he is a dynamite puncher and with that you are always in the fight.

“Whoever is next will get the same treatment, that is for sure.

"This was written in the stars a million miles away – before I was born I was destined to do what I do.
