Tyson Fury's shock victory over Wladimir Klitschko is all the more sweeter for him today.

It was revealed earlier today by Tyson's uncle, Peter Fury, that the current champion had made a sportman's bet with Klitschko for £200,000 before the fight began.

Fury's victory, which was ranked 115-112, 115-112 and 116-111 by the judges, upset the boxing world and ended Klitshko's run as the World Heavyweight Champion in a twelve-round battle.

Fury celebrated his victory in the ring by leading his fans in a rendition of Aerosmith's 'Don't Wanna Miss A Thing' and repeatedly thanked "the power of Jesus" for winning. 

Klitschko, who is 11 years older than Fury, paid out on his bet to Fury, netting the boxer a cool £400,000 on top of the undisclosed earnings he made on the fight.
