Fury's win paves the way for the self-titled 'Gypsy King' to face-off against fellow heavyweight Wilder in Las Vegas in November.

Little Rory Gallagher is one of Carl Frampton's biggest fans.

Rory has cerebral palsy and requires specialist surgery valued at €120,000 if he is to walk.

Frampton has visited Rory and his family in their home in Sligo and on Saturday evening the six year-old was ringside to cheer on 'the Jackal' as he defeated Australian fighter, Luke Jackson.

After Frampton's victory a short video clip of Deontay Wilder chatting to little Rory was shared on social media by the official Rory's Wish To Walk Twitter account.

"My heart might burst," read the Tweet. "My wee Rory's going to Vegas!!!
