Paris Fury has taken a swipe at Deontay Wilder after his defeat in Las Vegas, encouraging the American to retire.
Fury's wife was delighted to see the Gypsy King retain his WBC heavyweight title after he knocked out the Bronze Bomber in the 11th round of the mega trilogy fight.
Despite withstanding an onslaught of punishment before Fury eventually landed the killer blow, Paris had some harsh words for the American, branding him “not tough enough.”
The mother-of-six spoke to iFL TV about her other-half’s brilliant performance after he beat Wilder for the second time.
“Clearly he (Wilder) is a tough man, but he’s not tough enough.
"Three times [in a row] now. Maybe he’ll shut up now, go home and go to bed. I’ll be polite but we don’t want to hear that man’s name again."
Laughing to the camera, the 31-year-old added: "Let him go and do something else, do something else that he’s good at. He’s not good at boxing clearly.”
The sensational fight saw both men fall to the canvas, with Wilder down in the third and 10th rounds and Fury down twice in the fourth for the first time in his career.

Paris then went onto reveal how difficult it was to see her husband knocked to the canvas.
She said: "It's no good, it's not nice to watch. It's horrible. It's a horrible, horrible situation."
The Gypsy King got off to a slow start in which Wilder was very aggressive and looked to target his opponent’s body.
However, Fury soon found his range and used his superb movement to avoid Wilder’s punches as he began to tire.
Wilder’s extra weight proved to be a factor but despite his fatigue, he battled hard and withstood a series of punches in the second half of the fight.
In the penultimate round, Wilder’s resistance was broken as Fury landed a killer blow, sending him tumbling to the canvas and left the referee no choice but to stop the fight.
Paris believed Wilder is now well and truly in the rear view mirror for Fury, who has now beaten him twice.
She said: "That's that one [Wilder] finished and done with. Onwards and upwards for Tyson."
Fury is likely to face British heavyweight rival Dillian Whyte in his next bout, provided the latter beats Otto Wallin at the end of this month.
