Andy Lee leads the congratulations for cousin Tyson Fury after Dusseldorf dominance

Fury pushed the pace, never let Klitschko get going and is bringing some brand new belts back to Manchester because of it.

There may have been quite a few naysayers before the bout but one fighter who always backed Fury is WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee, who is Fury's cousin.
