Tyson Fury serenaded the crowd after a sensational win over Deontay Wilder – singing "Walking in (Vegas)".
The Gypsy King defended his WBC Heavyweight Title in style after knocking out the Bronze Bomber in the 11th round of their historic trilogy fight.
Ever the entertainer, Fury took a moment to have some fun with the American crowd as he sang Marc Cohn's 'Walking in Memphis' to them.
While standing in the ring with his coveted belt during his post-fight interview, an elated Fury took the microphone before belting out the famous song.
"I've got one thing to say," he said, and once he started to sing, he changed the "Walking in Memphis" line to "Walking in Vegas", which the T-Mobile Arena crowd lapped up.
"Thank you very much! Vegas I love you baby!", which was greeted with more cheers from the American crowd.
In what was a thrilling back-and-forth trilogy fight, the 33-year-old recovered from being knocked down twice in the fourth round to secure a monumental win.
Both men were taken off their feet with Wilder down in the third and 10th rounds and Fury down twice in one round for the first time in his career.
But it was the British fighter who recovered best from the setbacks to send Wilder crashing to the mat once and for all in the penultimate round, ensuring a conclusive end to their long-running feud.
"As the great John Wayne said, I'm made of pig, iron and steel," Fury said. "It was a great fight and worthy of any great trilogy fight.
"He's got no love for me because I've beaten him three times.
"I'm a sportsman, I went over to him to show some love and respect and he didn’t want to show it back. So I pray for him."
Fury was meeting Wilder for the third time in three years following a controversial draw in 2018 and a concussive stoppage in the seventh round of their 2020 fight.
The rivals were due to clash last summer but the fight was repeatedly rescheduled until it appeared to be off the table altogether when Fury agreed to fight Anthony Joshua, but Wilder took legal action in order to secure his shot at a championship rematch with Fury.
Fury will likely face British heavyweight rival Dillian Whyte in his next bout after beating Wilder once again.
Had AJ not lost to Oleksandr Usyk last month, Fury would now be given 30 days to negotiate an undisputed world title fight.
But instead, Joshua will have a rematch with Usyk next year, leaving the road clear for Whyte to finally have his shot at his fellow countryman and the WBC heavyweight title.
