Tyson Fury says he feels SORRY for his opponents and roars ‘I’m the best fighter of my generation’ after Wilder win

Tyson Fury’s brutal knockout of Deontay Wilder on Saturday confirmed his status as one of boxing’s all-time greats.

The 33-year-old remains unbeaten in 32 professional bouts and has labelled himself as the ‘best fighter’ of his day.

The Gypsy King defended his WBC and Lineal heavyweight titles in Las Vegas after twice getting up from the canvas in the fourth round to floor Wilder in the eleventh.

He will now be ordered to face the winner of Dillian Whyte vs Otto Wallin – meaning a fight for the ages against Anthony Joshua doesn’t seem close.

And Fury has claimed he ‘feels sorry’ for anybody who has to fight him following Saturday night’s textbook knockout.

In a video posted to Twitter by Michael Benson, via Top Rank Boxing and Premier Boxing Champions, Fury labels himself as a ‘generational’ fighter as he sits with barely a scratch on him.

The Gypsy King declared: “I can only be the best fighter of my day, and I’ve done that.

“I’m the best fighter of my era.

“I’m the generation fighter, I actually feel sorry for all these guys who have had to fight me.

“Because I’m in the dressing room at home I’m not nervous – you know it’s a boxing fight to me.

“I feel sorry for them because they’re fighting the fighter of the generation, that’s for sure.”

And from the press conference Fury was quick to start partying.

He was seen dancing shirtless alongside Tommy Fury in a Las Vegas nightclub.

He wowed the crowd with a rendition of American Pie – a Fury favourite he performed in the ring following his last win against Wilder.

The Gypsy King then belted out Sweet Caroline and ACDC’s TNT to go with the rendition of Walking In Memphis he sang in the ring following his victory.

Fury had already proved he meant business pre-fight by giving Wilder the ‘crazy eyes’ seconds before the first bell sounded.

The chilling stare sent shivers down the spines of people watching at home, but backs up Fury’s post fight claims about his status in the sport.
