British boxer Tyson Fury has beaten American fighter Deontay Wilder in their WBC heavyweight showdown in Las Vegas.
Fury dominated throughout the rematch before Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh round.
The victory comes 14 months after the two heavyweights fought to a draw in a dramatic fight, and a sold-out crowd was on hand at the MGM Grand arena to watch them do it again.
Fury, the ‘Gypsy King’, entered the arena held aloft on a throne by handlers, a royal robe around his shoulders and a crown on his head as the song Crazy by Patsy Cline played.
Wilder followed a few minutes later, his face hidden behind a glittery mask and a rapper in front of him.
Both fighters were guaranteed $5m for the bout but could make $40m or so if the fight performs well on pay-per-view.
