Tyson Fury’s promoter bought throne for $1,100 off Amazon

Tyson Fury

Half the fun of Saturday night’s heavyweight pay-per-view match between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder was getting to see their elaborate ring entrances.

Wilder entered the ring in his usual costume, complete with spikes and a mask.

Fury was carried to the ring on a throne while wearing a crown and king’s robe.

SI’s Chris Mannix says Fury’s promoter Top Rank bought the throne off Amazon for $1,100.

The costumes and entrances were more than just a spectacle, according to one of the fighters. Wilder told Yahoo’s Kevin Iole that the heavy costume he wore (40 or so pounds) weakened his legs and contributed to the first loss of his career. That’s absolutely laughable.

Wilder also told Iole he’s planning to exercise his rematch clause for a third fight against Fury. If Wilder and Fury fight for a third time, that would postpone an Anthony Joshua vs. Fury fight.
