Gypsy King Fury was born in Wythenshawe, in south Manchester.

He now lives in Morecambe – in the City of Lancaster district of Lancashire – hence the ‘Lancaster’ and ‘Lancashire’ chants.

Manchester was also historically part of the county of Lancashire, but since 1974 comes under the county of Greater Manchester.

And he gave a nod to his Lancashire roots after a savage knockout blow.

Fury’s football-like chant followed his rendition of ‘Walking in Memphis’ to the 20,000 strong crowd at T-Mobile Arena.

The 33-year-old changed Marc Cohn’s classic to ‘Walking in Vegas’ given the location of the fight.

He also shouted: “Las Vegas, I love you baby!” at the end of his ballad.

It’s not the first time Fury has serenaded fans with a sing-song following a victory on US soil.

The Gypsy King famously sung ‘American Pie’ after his first bout with Wilder back in 2018.

That fight ended in a controversial draw, although Fury to this day claims he won the fight.

There was no debate over the winner yesterday though after Fury’s textbook knockout.

After Wilder took a number of heavy blows Fury revealed he went over to the Bronze Bomber to show him respect, although was immediately rebuffed.

Fury said: “I went over to shake his hand and say well done and he was like ‘No, I don’t respect you’.

“How can you say I’ve cheated when you know in your own heart and full team knows that you just got beat fair and square.

“He’s a sore loser, I’m sure he’s not the first one and he won’t be the last one.”
