The comeback king
Having plummeted into the depths of depression and battled poor fitness and obesity this win was a battle for more than a title. In a valiant turnaround, Tyson Fury thanked God after winning the WBC heavyweight championship in a decisive seventh-round technical knockout on Saturday night.
After the match Fury was resplendent in his victory belts as he delivered this noteworthy speech.

He magnanimously praised, Deontay Wilder.
“Secondly, I just want to say, big shout-out, Deontay Wilder. You know, he came here tonight, he manned up, he really did show [the] heart of a champion. I hit him with a clean right hand and dropped him, and he got back up and battled on into round seven. He is a warrior, he will be back, he will be a champion again. But I will say: the King has returned to the top of the throne.”
Prayer before a fight
With a new trainer and a different strategy Fury jabbed his way to a seventh-round knockout. Wilder packs the harder punch and Fury knew he needed that change in tactics. The real winner was the pre-match prayer Tyson Fury said before he got in the ring.
“Heavenly Father I come to you in the mighty name of Jesus both men strapped tonight give both men know how to give their best performances and I both men come out the ring safely as I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil and those who in weapons against me shall prosper. Amen.”
