The Rock, Lennox Lewis and others were smitten by Tyson Fury retiring undefeated with the knockout of Dillian Whyte – and Don McLean said it was a good night for them both!


Tyson Fury wasn’t the only big winner on Saturday night, as Don McLean pointed out.

The American singer-songwriter was part of the champion’s epic with a remake of his classic, American Pie.

Fury’s entrance was just as dazzling as his knockout of Whyte
Whyte lasted six rounds before being on the receiving side of the uppercut, which impressed many people

Fury’s entrance was spectacular and, after knocking out Dillian Whyte in the sixth round with an uppercut, serenaded Wembley Stadium with a rendition of it American Pie.

During the ring walk and accompanying video, McLean wrote on Twitter, “Wow we filmed the opener three weeks ago and I knew it was going to be beautiful.

“But to see Tyson win and then sing the song with 95,000 people there – it’s an amazing night for Tyson and me.”

But Fury’s in-ring performance also drew plenty of praise.

WWE legend Triple H called him “unstoppable”, while The Rock simply tweeted “and still” in reference to him still being the WBC heavyweight champion of the world.

Nico Ali Walsh, grandson of the legendary Muhammad Ali, said: “Tyson Fury easily ranks among the greatest heavyweights of all time.”

Shakur Stevenson simply wrote, “I’ve never seen anything like Tyson Fury before – he’s amazing.”

Fury also stands by his claim that this is the end for him as far as boxing is concerned.

He then told talkSPORT that Saturday night was his last as a professional. This means he won’t have the chance to become the undisputed champion, with Oleksandr Usyk holding the other titles.

Former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis hopes that’s not the case.

“A great performance by Tyson Fury,” he wrote on Twitter. “It categorically keeps him as the man to beat. He is already in a very closed boxing club, but I can’t wait to welcome him to the undisputed club. Let’s do it.

But what does Fury think of himself?

“I am the best heavyweight that has ever existed.

“I’m 6-foot-9, 270 pounds, can move like a middleweight and punch like a thunderstorm. I have balls like King Kong, the heart of a lion and the mindset of the Wizard of Oz.

Ben Davison, his former trainer, told talkSPORT: “If this is his last fight, thank you for giving me the opportunity he gave me to work with him, the trust he gave me. given to be part of this return, a special experience that will go down in history.

“If he does or if he doesn’t [retire], he has shown that he is the best of his time. No one will match those victories – Wladimir Klitschko, Deontay Wilder and the way he beat Dillian Whyte.
