A cool video has emerged from the post-Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder fight scene in Las Vegas in Saturday night.

Fury won Saturday night's epic heavyweight bout, knocking out Wilder in the seventh round. "The Gypsy King" had Wilder on the ropes early in Round 7 when the latter boxer's corner threw in the towel.

Wilder was dropped twice by Fury during the seven-round fight. Fury connected on a big punch to Wilder's right ear early on, messing with his balance. Wilder was never able to recover.

The two heavyweights went at it inside the ring, but showed respect for each other once the fight was over. Fury had a heartfelt message for Wilder shortly after the final bell.

“What a fighter you are. … God bless you and your family," Fury said.

Fury had major praise for Wilder during his post-fight interview inside the ring, too.

"A big shoutout to Deontay Wilder," Fury said. "He came here tonight and he manned up, and he really did show the heart of a champion."

Wilder, meanwhile, told reporters that he was doing OK. He was reportedly checked out by a doctor inside the dressing room.

"I'm doing good. Things like this happen," Wilder said. "The best man won tonight, but my corner threw in the towel and I was ready to go out on my shield. I had a lot of things going on heading into this fight. It is what it is, but I make no excuses tonight. I just wish my corner would have let me go out on my shield."
