Slice of pizza and glass of water: Fury’s ‘celebration plans’ for Wilder win

Tyson Fury pulled off a dominant seventh round TKO win over Deontay Wilder and has joked his celebration plans include ‘a slice of pizza’ and ‘a few glasses of water’.

The highly anticipated rematch of their dramatic December 2018 bout was expected to be another close run fight, with most observers predicting a Fury win by unanimous decision or a Wilder win by KO.

However, Fury lived up to his pre-fight insistence that he would stop the Bronze Bomber, flooring Wilder twice and prompting his corner to throw in the towel.

The victory caps off a remarkable comeback from the Gypsy King, who fought back from three years out of the ring, mental health struggles and substance abuse issues to outclass the most feared knockout artist of the modern era.
