Tyson Fury made the most of his return home with an exciting entrance before knocking out Dillian White in his “Battle for Britain” at Wembley Stadium..
After White himself took the opportunity to enter the ring amid the Jaws explosion, the WBC heavyweight champion made his most appealing bow. In front of 94,000 people he was carried to a “square circle” sitting on a throne.
As he approached the ring, Fury went downstairs and jumped over the ropes, sending the ransomed crowd into admiration. Throughout all this, the arena captured a unique version of American Pie. The lyrics were a mix of Don McLean’s famous recording and the “Gypsy King” song itself, there were even some Kings of Leon. The songs were accompanied by video clips depicting Fury’s ascent to the top of the heavyweight.
There were images when Fury took a long break from the sport, facing problems with drinking, drugs and obesity. Compliments to him were clips with his best moments, including from his trilogy with Deantay Wilder.
As at Wembley, the entry proved popular on social media: @talkSPORT tweeted: “King Tyson Fury. What a walk in the ring it was!” @dormgod added: “The mega-mix for Fury is pure fire. Biggie, Kings of Leon, American Pie. Wow. Fireworks and he runs a long distance to the ring.”
@ KDs3rdBurna also agreed, adding: “Fury is different. A man who runs to the ring.” However, some drew attention to the duration of Fury’s release with the publication @ Kings_A1: “It’s nice to see Fury running in the ring, strange as it may be, this entry is very long.”
Is Tyson Fury the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time? Let us know in comments section.
Fury’s image matched his performance, controlling the first five rounds without delivering anything explosive. In the sixth, however, came the devastating right uppercut, which left his opponent on the canvas.
To his credit, ‘The Body Snatcher’, staggering, rose to his feet, clearly unable to continue, and referee Mark Lyson waved. This meant that the man from Manchester kept his unbeaten record, now it is 33-0-1.
And after that Fury made another performance of “American Pie”, which was joined by most of the crowd. Now we need to find out whether will fulfill his initial promise to resign.
