Tyson Fury’s words to Deontay Wilder in ring embrace following world title win

Tyson Fury was hailed by fans after his kind words to Deontay Wilder in the ring emerged.

The Bronze Bomber was left furious with his corner for throwing the towel in.

Footage has emerged, though, of Fury putting the beef aside in the ring after his win.

In the clip, the canvas at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, is filled with both fighters’ teams.
