Tyson Fury’s ring walk for Deontay Wilder takes everyone by surprise

Tyson Fury entered the ring for his rematch with Deontay Wilder in style this evening – dressed as a king while sat on a throne.

The Gypsy King is taking on Wilder in a rematch of their epic December 2018 encounter at the MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas.

And as he took to the ring in Sin City, Fury was accompanied by Patsy Cline’s 1961 song ’Crazy’.

In true king style, he donned a gold crown on top of his head along with a fancy red robe.

Fury’s promoter Bob Arum claimed before the fight he would be entering the ring in style and the man himself certainly backed those comments up.

“People gave me credit for the last two ring entrances, but I had nothing to do with either of them,” he said.

“It was all down to Tyson Fury. I didn’t even talk to him (about them).

The Bronze Bomber’s designers, Cosmo + Donato, told The Sun prior to the rematch they were inspired by British 60s horror flick The Devil Rides Out when choosing his outfit.

“From my time in art school, I developed a love for the golden age of Hammer Studios,” Donato revealed.

“The look was born when I came across an old poster for The Devil Rides Out from like the sixties.

“It’s terrifying, and we feel it’s just the right time to instil some terror.”
