“Tonight is YOUR night. Get the job done and get home my boy.
“We are so beyond proud of you. Your team forever.” She said, adding, “Let’s go.”
Hague has been looking after the couple’s child for the past few weeks as Fury prepared for the fight in Saudi Arabia.
Fury defeated Paul earlier today marking the first time Paul has been defeated in his boxing career.
He has previously fought against retired basketballer Nate Robinson, as well as retired mixed martial artists Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, and Anderson Silva.
Fury stunned the boxing world, getting up off the canvas to win via a split judges’ decision.
The undercard earlier delivered several explosive knockout wins and the drama went to another level in the main event.
Paul knocked Fury down in the final round but it was not enough to overcome Fury’s domination of the earlier rounds.
The judges awarded the victory to Fury via a 74-75, 76-73 x2 scorecard. Official stats showed Fury landed 88 punches compared to his opponent’s 49.
Both fighters agreed to a rematch after the fight.

Joe Biden’s dramatic train trip through a war zone to stand with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kiev inspired most of the world, but not everyone. Biden was greeted in Kiev by the man who exemplifies Ukrainian courage in the face of relentless Russian war crimes. When the Russians invaded Ukraine a year ago, no one bet on Zelenskyy remaining alive, let alone walking the streets of his country’s capital. And he has exposed Putin as a tyrant, a war criminal and a crook. Jeff Robbins is a Boston lawyer and former U.S. delegate to the United Nations Human Rights Commission28 days ago Boston Herald
