LAS VEGAS (AP) The world has never seen a heavyweight champion quite like Tyson Fury, the British behemoth who gave Deontay Wilder a beat down to win the heavyweight title and then celebrated by leading his fans in a chorus of “American Pie” from the ring at the MGM Grand hotel.

He can fight, he can sing and he can talk. Oh, can he talk.

Before the fight Fury talked nonstop about how he was going to switch from boxer to puncher to take the heavyweight title from Wilder. After the fight he talked about how he did just that - and will only get better as his career goes on.
