Although Burton lost the fight via unanimous decision, it was great to see him go to the distance with his rival. That said, Tyson Fury’s presence was not very beneficial for his cousin. However, it was beneficial for the promoters.

Amid several people in the arena, Tyson Fury walked in the ring and enjoyed his moment of glory. Despite having no connection with the fight card, it seemed as if ‘The Gypsy King’ was the central core of attraction.

The official Twitter handle of MTK Global posted the video. As you can see Tyson Fury went inside the ring where he had his mic-time. The undefeated Brit Heavyweight expressed his gratitude to the fans. He further thanked them for offering him such a warm welcome.

Considering that Tyson Fury will defend his title soon against Deontay Wilder, this could be his last appearance in a professional boxing event. Meanwhile, he will look forward to finishing his training camp and complete the paperwork to seal the deal with ‘The Bronze Bomber.’
