ON THE BOX
Tyson Fury rang his dad John to ask whether his beating of Deontay Wilder “looked good on tele” minutes after being crowned new WBC heavyweight champ.
He then wanted some approval from his old man, asking: “Did it look good on the tele?
“Hey, dad, only the second man in history to win the Ring Magazine belt twice – me and Muhammad Ali. Not bad, eh?
“Go on then dad, I’ve got a million interviews. I’ll call you when I get back to the house. See you in a bit. Bye.”
