Boxing legend Mike Tyson was on Sunday morning caught on camera wildly celebrating Tyson Fury’s sensational win over heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder.
Mike Tyson was as happy as much of the crowd in attendance as Tyson Fury defeated the odds to become WBC heavyweight champion with a hugely dominant display and after the fight legendary heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, who had earlier been honoured in the same ring, was spotted celebrating the victory, five days after Wilder claimed in an interview he will ‘knock the hell outta’ Mike Tyson if they had both fought.
The former two time world champion might have just been really excited about Fury’s dominating performance but boxing fans feel there may have been a bit more behind the 53 year old’s celebration after Wilder said he would beat Mike Tyson in his prime, hence Tyson’s support for Fury.
Wilder boasted to Espn News last week: “My hand speed, I’m too long, I’m too tall, my athleticism, my feetwork, all that gives me an advantage, it plays a big part.
“No disrespect to Mike Tyson, in his era he was the best but this is a new era.
“No old-school fighter should beat a new-school fighter. Look at the technology we have.
“Nobody has a natural killer instinct as I do, ain’t anybody could ever knock me out. I’m very confident in what I say and I speak what I do.”
“Old school [or] new school, I knock them all out.”Me vs Tyson in ’86, I’d kick the hell outta that guy.
“Listen, I’ve got to keep it real. I know people always go back to the old school or look at the new school and there’s no school where I’m not No1 on Earth.”
