British boxer, and WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury marked his special win over American Deontay Wilder with a rendition of Don McLean's folk classic "American Pie".
To the enjoyment of the crowd who certainly got involved, Fury hit the notes almost as hard as he hit Wilder in the epic clash of the two heavyweights.
The Brit is known for singing the Don McLean classic at sporting events, and previously delivered a version of it after his drawn fight against Wilder in 2018.
Afterwards, he was gracious in victory, commenting: “I want to shout out Deontay Wilder. He showed the heart of a champion. He got up and battled onto round seven. He is a warrior, he will be back and be champion again. But the king has returned to the top of the throne.” The 31-year old, who’s said to have made $40 million from the rematch, said he had three fights left on his contracts and planned to retire after those. “So three fights or less, that’s it,” he added.
