Tyson Fury has sent an X-rated warning to his next opponent after knocking out Deontay Wilder.

The Gypsy King defended his WBC heavyweight title in style as he put the Bronze Bomber on the canvas in the 11th round of their historic trilogy fight on Saturday.

And now Fury has his sights set on affirming his place among the greats of the heavyweight division and becoming an undisputed champion of the world.

YouTube channel iFL TV caught up with the 33-year-old partying in Las Vegas and asked who is next for the Morecambe-based champion, with Anthony Joshua tipped to face him for a bout dubbed the Battle of Britain.

Fury emphatically responded: “Any mother***** born from their mother!”

The Gypsy King is planning on taking a break to spend time with his family until the New Year, but has multiple options for his next fight when he does step back in the ring.

Firstly, Fury could look to face Oleksandr Usyk, though the Ukrainian must first navigate a rematch with Joshua after snatching the Brit’s WBO, WBA (Super) and IBF belts in a convincing victory last month.

That could still be months from being decided, meaning a mandatory defence is likely to be Fury’s next fight.

He will be ordered by the WBC to fight the winner of Dillian Whyte and Otto Wallin’s bout later this month straight away, should a unification bout not be arranged.

Promoter Frank Warren was asked for an insight in his client’s next step, revealing: “Maybe we can make the winner of that fight [Usyk v Joshua II].

“Autumn, maybe this time next year. They are talking about putting that fight on some time in March, so they’ll need six months after that, so that’s when it would happen,” Warren added.

“It’d be an ideal world for Anthony Joshua not to go for the rematch so we can just get straight to it.”

For now, though, Fury says he will ‘bask in victory.’

The thrilling back-and-forth fight saw Wilder twice knock his rival down in the fourth round but Fury recovered to secure a monumental victory, the first time he had been down on two occasions in the same round in his 13-year professional career.

Wilder also went down in the third and 10th rounds, eventually succumbing to a blow in the penultimate round, hitting the mat to make it a conclusive end to their long-running feud.

And their battle will be their last, with Fury telling BBC Sport : “It was a different fight from the first two but the outcome was still the same.

“It was a great trilogy and you need a good dance partner for trilogies.

“Wilder has been a good dance partner but there’s no rematch, it’s actually done.”

Wilder himself admitted post-KO: “I did my best, but it wasn’t good enough.

“I’m not sure what happened. I know that in training he did certain things, and I also knew that he didn’t come in at 277 to be a ballet dancer. He came to lean on me, try to rough me up and he succeeded.”
