Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have both been invited to visit the White House by American president Donald Trump following their titanic battle in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh round to ensure Fury went home with the WBC world heavyweight title.
The Bronze Bomber was struggling with nasty cuts to his ear and mouth as Fury landed a barrage of punches from the first bell.
Trump stayed up late to watch the fight on TV and he now wants to meet both fighters – much to the excitement of Fury’s family.
“That is good for a Fury isn’t it,” dad John told Good Morning Britain. “I am a big fan of Donald Trump.
“It is great where it has ended, a meeting in the White House.”
Trump spoke to the press ahead of an official trip to India alongside First Lady Melania Trump.
“That was a great fight,” the president said on Sunday. “Two great fighters. It was really very exciting.
“Maybe we have to bring them both to the White House – I don’t know – because that was really a good one.”
Trump paused for a brief moment then added: “I think we’ll do that.”

Fury’s comeback from the brink of suicide is one of the greatest sporting stories of all time.
The Gypsy King’s life spiralled out of control after beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.
Even Fury’s dad did not think there was any way back for the 31-year-old but he has proved everybody wrong and inspired millions of other strugglers around the world.
“I am sat here today and I keep pinching myself because where he was two years ago there was no hope,” John Fury explained.
“He was that low, he went that far back I didn’t think he was ever going to get back.
“The light switch just went off and he we are today. I think there is more to life than we see with the eye. He was in such a mess.
“It was a dark time and when you see a man who was drinking himself to death to escape reality, he was eating all kinds of food.
“When your son stops caring what you think as a father and a parent that is time to worry.”
