Tyson Fury Serenades Crowd With 'American Pie' After WBC Title Win

Tyson Fury Serenades Crowd With 'American Pie' After WBC Title Win

As usual, in victory, Tyson Fury sang Don McLean's American Pie after defeating Deontay Wilder on Saturday night.

Shortly beforehand, Fury had stopped Deontay Wilder in the seventh round of their rematch for the WBC heavyweight title. Wilder's corner threw in the towel with 1:39 of the round elapsed.

With contributions from promoter Bob Arum, and Ireland's Andy Lee - who is part of Fury's new coaching team - in the ring, the 31-year-old serenaded the crowd.

"I told everybody with a pair of ears that the Gypsy King would return to the throne," Fury told BT Sport.

"My last fight everybody wrote me off. I was under weight and over trained. I'm a destroyer. Not bad for someone with pillow fists.

"I'm a man of my word. I told Wilder, his team, the world. We trained for a knockout, we wasn't tapping around in that gym.

"I talk like this because I can back it up. People write me off, they look at my fat belly and bald head and think I can't fight. He fought the best Tyson Fury, we're both in our primes.

"I expect him (Wilder) to ask for the third fight. I know he's a warrior and I'll be waiting."
