Tyson Fury went backstage to console Campbell Somerville after suffering his first professional loss in a gruesome knockout.
The Gypsy King was in Australia to witness the return of his friend Joseph Parker, but arrived early to watch much of the undercard.
Fury watched as Somerville, who was 3-0 going into the fight, was stopped by 0-1-1 journeyman Isaias Sette in a huge upset.
The 26-year-old has previously represented Australia at the Commonwealth Games, but that experience did not help him on Wednesday.
Somerville’s defenses failed as Sette landed hard shots with consistency early on.
By the fourth round, he had multiple cuts and bruises with blood all over his face.
Sette saw his opportunity and took it, adding further punishment to his weakened opponent.
Somerville refused to quit, but his corner threw in the towel to stop the contest, awarding Sette his first-ever victory by technical knockout against all odds.
The beaten man was devastated and retired to his dressing room, where he sat on the floor, heartbroken.
Surprisingly though, he was later visited by the WBC heavyweight champion of the world.
Fury put his hand on Somerville’s shoulder and said, “It’s the fighting game my friend.
“Sometimes in boxing you win some and you lose some.
“Even if you win, sometimes you get crushed.”
Somerville then rose to continue the conversation.
Fury added: “I’ve had faces like this many times, just come back and keep doing what you gotta do.”
They shook hands and concluded by taking a picture together.
