According to TMZ, Fury had been dominating throughout the fight between him and Wilder, which was held in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Throughout the fight, Wilder was taking a beating from his opponent leading to him bleeding throughout the bout. But, this was not a problem for the eventual winner as he appeared to lick some of the blood off of Wilder's neck during the 6th round.

During the fight's 7th round, Wilder's corner decided to throw in the towel shortly after the viral moment had already occurred.

Considering just how wild (and, frankly, bizarre) Fury's action was, there were plenty of people on social media who had quite a bit to say about the incident.

"At this point i woulda just walked out, weird a— people man [laughing out loud]," one fan joked about the moment on Twitter.

"The king is a Savage allright," another fan wrote, referencing Fury's nickname "Gypsy King."

Actress Holly Robinson Peete even commented on the action, writing that it was "Sooo DISGusting and Disrespectful."

Some fans on Twitter pointed out that the heavyweight champion could have been sticking his tongue out at either a heckler or someone else in the crowd.

One user commented, "He’s not he’s sticking his tongue out to someone in the crowd presumably taunting one of Wilders family or entourage he done it in the first fight."

Despite that the possibility, the moment was still seen as being a bizarre one after such an intense fight between two boxing phenoms.

According to CBS Sports, Fury and Wilder went up against each other once again after a disputed draw was given for their previous match-up.

Following the win, Fury decided to grab the mic and sing a rousing rendition of "American Pie" for the crowd. He also chose to address Wilder after the bout.

"The king has returned," Fury told the crowd. "I just want to say a big shout out to Deontay Wilder. He came here tonight, he manned up and he showed the heart of a champion. He is a warrior, he will be back and he will be a champion again."
