Tyson Fury Defeats Deontay Wilder In 11th Round Knockout


Tyson Fury retained his WBC heavyweight title after defeating Deontay Wilder in a dramatic heavyweight title bout in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After an intense scrap in which both men were dropped twice before the knockout, Fury knocked Wilder out at 1:10 of the 11th round with a vicious left-right combination.



“I’m the WBC champion, the Ring Champion and the lineal champion. “Don’t ever doubt me. When the chips are down, I will deliver.” Tyson Fury Brags.


After one of the best fights Las Vegas has ever seen, a trilogy battle deserving of consideration as one of the best ever produced, there is no doubt that Fury has solidified his place as one of the all-time greats.



Wilder, who weighed a career-high 107.9 kg, came out swinging in the first round, forcing Fury to retrace and avoid the nasty right hand that had accounted for 41 knockouts in his professional career.


Fury, who weighed in at a career-high 125.6kg, struck the first knockout blow in the third round, knocking down the American with a big right hand.

In a tough, seesawing fourth round, Wilder appeared out on his feet but rallied in the greatest possible way, sending Fury to the canvass twice.



The former heavyweight champion — who had been criticized for being a limited boxer and one-punch specialist during his career — looked sharp, working behind a rangy jab to the body and testing Fury throughout — looked sharp, working behind a rangy jab to the body and testing Fury throughout.
