THIS is the chilling moment Tyson Fury was seen licking blood off the neck of Deontay Wilder during their heavyweight title fight.
Fury, a.k.a. The Gypsy King, stopped Wilder seven rounds into their rematch at the MGM Grand in the sinful city of Las Vegas.
The Bronze Bomber can be seen standing there in a daze in between rounds six and seven as Fury tilts his head forwards to lap up droplets of blood trickling down his neck.
The moment was captured by BettorIQ, a sports betting company and posted on their official Twitter account.
Wilder was left bleeding from his lip and ear and had to spend some time in a local hospital to receive some stitches to fix up his wounds before being medically cleared to fight again several months later.
“He had a small cut inside the ear which may have affected his equilibrium so he’s going to get some stitches," his trainer Jay Deas told reporters at a press conference in Las Vegas.
“That’s the extent of it; it was a gruelling fight against a gruelling fighter. This will give him some time to enjoy his family and rest up.”
Tyson Fury licks Deontay Wilder's blood
Fury was famously denied by the judges as he was forced to accept a controversial draw with Wilder in Los Angeles.
But he left nothing to chance the second time round as he inflicted a first defeat on his opponent.
“I had an opportunity to do it there in Round 6,” Fury later told ESPN.
“So I had to taste his blood just so I could get the feeling of what my prey tasted like.
"I was a hunter, I was like a lion, and he was a gazelle, a large gazelle, and I took it down and then that was it, game over."
“Different mindset,” he replied when asked if he would be tempted to drink someone else's blood outside of the ring.
“The animal instinct come out inside the boxing ring. And it’s either him or you.
"But it’s weird because I’ve not noticed anyone licking anybody else’s blood before.
"Hope he doesn’t have any germs or anything, or I’ve got his cooties now, baby.”
