Tyson Fury’s dad John commended his son’s performance against Deontay Wilder last month as a ‘masterclass’ and ‘the best thing I’ve seen in my life’ during a phone call the two shared after the fight. Fury won the WBC and Ring Magazine belt off Wilder.
Fury dominated Wilder for seven rounds and knocked him down twice en route to a TKO win after the Bronze Bomber’s corner threw the towel in.
Fury was then filmed having a phone conversation with his dad in the changing rooms after.
Fury Sr couldn’t attend the event as he isn’t allowed into the United States because of a previous conviction.
