Tyson Fury hit the Las Vegas pool scene after his crushing win in the ring, and he wasn’t going to let some dudes and their fancy cup spoil the good time.
Fury, who defeated Tom Schwarz by TKO in the 2nd round, was holding his celebration at Wet Republic at the MGM Grand … which also happened to be the same location for the St. Louis Blues hockey team who was partying after winning the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins.
Both sides started off appearing to co-mingle, but once the St. Louis Blues’ fight song began blaring on the speakers … Fury’s crew had apparently had enough sharing of the celebration spotlight.
Midway through the season, the NHL team adopted the Laura Branigan 1982 pop hit, “Gloria,” as their anthem, which they rode to a Stanley Cup victory.
As fans of the Blues shouted for their song, one of the players (we have no clue which one) hoisted the famous trophy in the air for all to see.
Unfortunately, one of Fury’s entourage members had enough hockey for that day and slowly made his way over before shoving the man into the pool.
One of NHL partygoers looked reasonably upset, but seeing as the guy who committed the act had a pretty gnarly chest tattoo and didn’t look like someone who should be messed with … there was no retaliation.
After the push, the party continued for Tyson, as the bikini-clad women at Wet Republic displayed cards that spelled out “GYPSY KING” and also featured a miniature pirate ship stocked with women and booze.
After his fight, Fury said the key to victory was “to enjoy myself.” It looks like he’s figured out how to do just that.
