Tyson Fury Says Ed Sheeran Was P*ssed Off After Record-Breaking Dillian Whyte KO
| Last updated
Ed Sheeran was reportedly 'p****d off' after Tyson Fury outsold him at Wembley.
Sheeran has had a hectic week to say the least. From racing across the UK to perform at two gigs on the very same day, to performing a whopping total of four concerts in Manchester in the space of a single week.
However, despite his multitude of performances across the country, the British musician didn't quite outdo two-time world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury a.k.a. The Gypsy King in the race to sell the most tickets at Wembley in London.
Earlier this year, on 23 April, Fury went head-to-head in the ring with fellow British professional boxer Dillian Whyte, selling a record 94,000 tickets to the fight.
In an interview with Frank Warren's Queensberry Promotions, Fury joked that Sheeran was slightly 'p****d off' at having been outdone by the boxer.
He said: "It went absolutely fantastically, we had the record-breaking crowd there, in history for any event and Ed Sheeran was really p***ed off about that recently."
Reflecting on his knockout win, Fury added that the event had been 'absolutely fantastic' and was 'a great night of boxing'.
He noted that the 'brilliant knockout' simply 'cap[ped] it all off'.
The Gypsy King added: "It could not have gone any better."
Fury's KO win was achieved by a brutal uppercut to Whyte's face.
Slow-motion footage revealed the intense moment the Gypsy King secured his win in the sixth-round.
The 33-year-old boxer subsequently retained his WBC heavyweight title.
Fury even revealed the words which were exchanged between the pair in the lead up to his winning left hook, managing to beat Whyte at his own game.
Despite his epic win, Fury has since announced his plans to remove himself from the ring more permanently.
"You know I promised my lovely wife Paris of 14 years that after the Wilder three fight that would be it and I meant it. It was a great trilogy but I meant that," he said.
However, plenty of the Gypsy King's fans aren't convinced.
While Fury may have outdone Sheeran in the amount of tickets sold at Wembley, it doesn't look like the musician will be challenging The Gypsy King to step back into the ring over it.
Fury and his wife Paris were snapped hanging out with the singer backstage at one of his Manchester gigs.
Despite fan's hopes, Fury appears to be well and truly enjoying his retirement.
