Mike Tyson says Fury fight with Wilder will go down as one of greatest EVER 'and both reached all-time great status'
MIKE TYSON has dubbed Tyson Fury's win over Deontay Wilder one of the best fights in boxing history – with both reaching 'all-time great status'.
The British star, 33, recovered from two knockdowns to KO the Bronze Bomber in the 11th round of a thrilling fight in Las Vegas to retain his WBC heavyweight belt.
Fans immediately called it an instant classic, with Iron Mike, 55, claiming it's 'one of the greatest' fights in boxing history.
Tyson tweeted: "Fury vs Wilder fight will go down as one of greatest.
"Not for skill, but for action and excitement.
"That fight was all guts, heart & determination.
"Everybody won Saturday night.
"The fight was bigger than the hype. Both of them reached all time great status…"

Tyson continued by crediting Wilder's trainer, Malik Scott, for his work – saying he 'won the night' for his coaching.
Iron Mike wrote: "Wilder’s coach Malik Scott won the night with great coaching.
"When you are an amateur you have a coach, they nurture you, guide you and are with you every step of the way.
"Once you turn pro you get a trainer. A trainer is in your life as long as the checks are coming…
"A coach is with you for the rest of your life. A coach feels every punch you take and give too."
Fury has since hinted he will RETIRE from boxing, sensationally revealing: "I don’t know if I need to fight any more."
The Gypsy King told the Telegraph: "I don’t know what’s going to happen.
"I’ve got one fight left on my contract with Top Rank and ESPN and we’ll see what that is.
"But I’m not thinking about boxing right now. I don’t know how many fights I’ve got left.
"I don’t know if I need to fight any more. I don’t know what the future holds."
However, fellow Brit Dillian Whyte is Fury's mandatory challenger and the Body Snatcher's promoter Eddie Hearn is keen for him to finally get his first world title shot.
