Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have both been invited to the White House by American president Donald Trump. The Gypsy King secured the WBC belt with brutal performance in Las Vegas.
Nobody could have predicted Fury’s aggressive tactics as he battered Wilder around the ring from the first bell.
What was expected to be a tactical battle was quite the opposite and the Bronze Bomber seemed surprised at the barrage of punches he had to eat.
Fury landed twice as many shots as he downed the American in the third and fifth round before Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh with blood pouring from his mouth and ear.
Trump revealed he stayed up late to watch the titanic clash on TV as he was preparing to leave for an official trip to India alongside First Lady Melania Trump.
“That was a great fight,” the president said. “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.”
It is unclear if Fury or Wilder will accept the invitation once it is formally presented to them.
However, the pair will meet again as their contract allows the loser to trigger a trilogy fight.

They scrapped to a controversial draw during their first meeting in December 2018 which allowed Wilder to retain his belt.
But Fury is now the WBC champion of the world and can look to attempt to unify the heavyweight division by taking on Anthony Joshua.
However, the 31-year-old is unsure which opponent he will take on in his next outing.
“I want to enjoy the spoils of war first and my after-fight party at Hakkasan,” said Fury, when asked about a Joshua fight.
“The Gypsy King is taking over. Deontay Wilder will need time to recover.
“I think he will want to take the rematch, so I’m pretty sure we will do it again.
“If not, these are the people [his promoters] who will decide, and whatever they want to do against whoever.”
