Tyson Fury spotted dancing shirtless in Las Vegas venue after Deontay Wilder victory with Gypsy King celebrating heavyweight triumph at afterparty with American DJ Steve Aoki











Tyson Fury was seen partying with his shirt off at a Las Vegas afterparty following his thrilling trilogy fight victory over Deontay Wilder on Saturday night. 

The Gypsy King beat Wilder in the 11th round despite being floored twice by the Bronze Bomber seven rounds earlier to retain his WBC and Ring Magazine titles in Las Vegas. 

Fury then threw the attention to the Hakkasan venue right next to the MGM Grand arena where he beat Wilder, where he was seen dancing on top of a stage in front of hundreds of partygoers, holding what appears to be a Bud Light beer with no shirt on.

Before reaching the venue, Fury was congratulated by American DJ Steve Aoki who was present at the Las Vegas fight venue for the Briton’s victory on Saturday night. 

Aoki was in charge of the DJ set for the afterparty in Hakkasan, and was seen trying to motivate dancers at the club in a video published on his Instagram story. 

The Hakkasan venue was where Fury celebrated his February 2019 win over Wilder, with Aoki running the set after that victory as well. 

Fury also posed for photographs with his WBC and Ring Magazine belts with Aoki, before doing the same with his support team that includes trainer SugarHill Steward and wife Paris.

The Gypsy King paid tribute to those closest to him for helping him through the thrilling Wilder fight. 

Fury said in his post-fight interview: ‘I’m the WBC champ, Ring Magazine champion and the lineal champion. You know what, I have to say thank you to my trainer SugarHill because if it wasn’t for Sugar, America’s own, Detroit’s own, I wouldn’t have got through that fight tonight. 

‘He told me: get your jab working big dog and chew that right hand down the middle. Only the big dogs pull it out late on in fights. And I said: “Yes, I got ya” and I pulled it out the bag.

‘Big shout out my dad, my mam, my kids all watching, I know you’ve had your hearts in your mouth tonight but don’t ever doubt me. When the chips are down, I can always deliver.’

Fury’s wife Paris took to social media on Saturday night to pay tribute to her victorious husband, uploading an image of the pair with his retained belts, captioning the snap: ‘Best man walking! And I love him and am incredibly proud.’

The win was Fury’s second triumph over Wilder after the Briton beat the Bronze Bomber in February of last year, but the Gyspy King was forced to take on the American once again instead of facing countryman Anthony Joshua this year. 

Victory over Wilder means Fury can now pursue a unification fight for the remaining heavyweight belts, which are currently held by Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk who beat Joshua last month in London. 

However, Joshua is due to rematch Usyk next year so the all-British unification heavyweight match-up could still take place, providing the Watford-born boxer wins the second fight, which is due to take place next year. 

Fury endured a tough rivalry with Wilder which saw both fighters go on expletive-laden rants against each other during the press conference and weigh-in meets that preceded Saturday’s trilogy fight.

The Gypsy King revealed that he tried to congratulate the American for his efforts after the fight but Wilder was too disconsolate to acknowledge Fury’s gesture.  

Speaking about the conversation, Fury recalled: ‘I said “well done, mate” and he said “I don’t want to show any sportsmanship or respect.” I said “No problem.” I was very surprised. Sore loser. Idiot.’  

The American has repeatedly made excuses for his defeat in the pair’s second meeting – and claimed he won the first fight despite the decision of the judges. 

‘I’m a sportsman,’ Fury added in an interview on BT Sport. ‘I went over to (Wilder to) show some love and respect and he didn’t want to show it back. So I pray for him.’
