Top Rank has done it again with a classic mash-up clip of Tyson Fury’s last round knockdown against Deontay Wilder mixed with the hit movie Rocky.
TR’s social media video whizz kid has come up trumps again with a clip that has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on social media.
In it, Fury is pummeled to the ground famously by Wilder in the twelfth, only to be resurrected after around seven seconds.
Fury looked out, he was gone. But somehow he came back.
Two massive blows by Wilder, the biggest puncher in the sport and of the modern era, weren’t enough to nail ‘The Gypsy King’ to the canvas.
This has inspired Top Rank to put the enthralling incident to Rocky movie clips, which worked perfectly.
‘Get up you son of a b****, cos Mickey loves ya!’ (from Rocky V).
View for yourself ahead of one of the biggest fights in decades on February 22 in Las Vegas.
