Tyson Fury knocked back beers in airport bar following Wilder win after flight home was diverted due to thunderstorm – The Sun

TYSON FURY knocked back beers in an airport bar following his incredible win over Deontay Wilder after his flight home was diverted due to a thunderstorm.

The Gypsy King, 31, saw his plane home rerouted via Georgia, in the south-east of the US, after a thunderstorm wreaked havoc on his journey.


Fury had hours earlier beaten Wilder in stunning manner in Los Angeles – with the Bronze Bomber's team throwing in the towel in the seventh round.

The American star sacked the man responsible – despite it clearly being the correct decision.

Having been re-crowned world heavyweight champion, Fury embarked on an epic after-party.

But the booze-fuelled celebrations were forced to continue after thunder and lightning saw Fury's flight home grounded just north of Florida.

Fury's gym-mate Isaac Lowe revealed the group sunk many a beer to pass the time on their layover.

We were knackered… we had a few beers.

Lowe told Sky Sports: "We left Monday morning but it took 24 hours to get back.

"We had to fly to Georgia, then there was a thunderstorm which delayed the plane.

"We were knackered… we had a few beers."

Fury did eventually make it back to England as he landed in Manchester on Tuesday morning to a hero's welcome, before taking a trip to Home Bargains with his family.

And all eyes will now turn to who his next fight will be against – with the whole world itching to see an all-British unification clash with Anthony Joshua.

AJ currently holds four belts, the WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO – while Fury holds those for the WBC and Ring Magazine.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn revealed he would be a "clown" and an "idiot" if he didn't manage to get a fight with Fury sorted.

And now Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, has insisted the pair WILL fight in 2020 – if the Gypsy King beats Wilder again and AJ wins his fight with mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.
