Tyson Fury praised Oleksandr Usyk in the ring after their fight, inviting the Ukrainian to join him on holiday in the future.

Fury suffered his first defeat as a professional yesterday in Saudi Arabia, handing over the WBC title to Usyk and surrendering his undefeated record.

Television cameras captured what the rival heavyweights said to each other in the ring after the scorecards confirmed Usyk as a split-decision winner.

In a fight that swung back and forward, Usyk came on strong in the second half, almost stopping Fury in the ninth round.

Fury continued to congratulate Usyk as the pair exchanged words, surrounded by their respective teams.

Fury congratulated Usyk and says he is a very good boxer and he loves the slick moves.

He says he would like to come to Ukraine and have a holiday with Usyk’s family, and Usyk can come to his house and have a holiday with him.

While Usyk improved his undefeated record to 22-0, Fury suffered his first loss in 36 fights.

Usyk now holds the WBO, WBC, IBF and WBA belts, becoming the first undisputed heavyweight champion in nearly 25 years and the first to hold all four major world titles in the modern era.
