DONALD TRUMP has invited Tyson Fury to visit the White House following his sensational heavyweight championship win over Deontay Wilder.
However, in an unexpected twist, the President decided to extend the invitation to the Gypsy King’s defeated American rival.
Speaking on the White House lawn this Sunday, February 23, Trump admitted he was one of the countless millions who tuned in to watch Fury defeat Wilder within seven rounds, following a devasting boxing display from the Manchester-born star.
Ahead of his departure on an official trip to India, Trump stopped to pass comment on Fury’s win, describing it as “a great fight”.
“Two great fighters," the President added. “It was really very exciting.”
Trump then began to discuss the idea of inviting the new champ, Fury, to the White House as a guest alongside his fallen opponent, Wilder.
Trump began to think aloud about having not just the champion Fury, but also Wilder, as his White House guests.
“Maybe we have to bring them both to the White House - I don't know - because that was really a good one,” he said in an off-the-cuff declaration.
He then appeared to confirm the decision to invite both, declaring: “I think we'll do that,” before heading off on his trip to India.
Fury is likely to be in much demand following his impressive victory over the much-fancied Wilder, who went into the bout as the bookies’ favourite.
