Blog King, Mass Appeal

LAS VEGAS — It wasn’t on the same level as Rocky Balboa versus Apollo Creed. But it was pretty damn good. Tyson Fury, 33, defeated Deontay Wilder, 35, at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday to retain his WBC heavyweight title. Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) closed the trilogy match with a highlight-reel knockout in the 11th round. Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) didn’t know what hit him. Prior to that, both fighters took turns kicking each other’s ass. The epic bout featured a combined five knockdowns.

Fury hit the mat twice in the 4th.

Wilder went down in the 3rd and 10th before kissing the canvas for good in the 11th.

“He caught me twice in the fourth round, but I was never thinking, ‘Oh, this is over,'” the Gypsy King recounted. “He shook me, put me down, but that’s boxing, and that’s life as well. It’s not how many times you get knocked down. You’ve got to keep fighting and keep moving forward.”

Despite the shaky 4th round, Fury was ahead on all three scorecards (95-92, 94-92 and 95-91) when the referee stopped the fight. “It was a great fight tonight,” he said. “It was worthy of any trilogy in the history of the sport. Wilder’s a tough fighter… I always said I’m the best in the world and he’s second-best.”

After getting a split draw in the first fight, Wilder has lost two straight to Fury.

  1. Wilder got some serious stamina issues, only two rounds and he is sloppy and tired, yes, Fury’s weigh might be the answer to that but still, happened in the second fight too. Can’t deny his heart though, fought with no gas tank lots of rounds, one of the best fights I’ve seen live without a doubt.

  2. Deontay Wilder lost this third fight cause he was already 76 years old, but some people who know him very well say that he is really 137 year’s old. Deontay Wilder is known for lying about his age.

  3. One worships Satan, one worships God.

    It’s clear who the winner will ALWAYS be.

    Stay blessed and humble.

  4. Not a huge fan of Wilder but damn, I really hope he doesn’t suffer from this beating later on in life.

  5. i dont understand Tyson Fury looks more like fat and out of shape compared to Wilder, how can that be? genuinely asking

  6. We need a fourth and final decider between these two equally matched titans ✊🏿

  7. They should never have allowed these guys to fight.. jesus christ. Way too even. They are killing eachother for everyones entertainment. Their brains are fucked for the rest of their lives after a match like this

  8. It’s embarrassing that these 2 are even considered the best in the world, boxings become so pathetic and talentless.

  9. Sad that Jake Paul can outsell fights like this. Really a sad time for boxing. Not gonna get a better fight than Fury/Wilder for a looooong time either.

  10. @Rossi Warren: I don’t see what the controversy is about. Tyson Fury gets up at 9.

    Wilders ass whooping was 100% legal

  11. The ending was like a epic climax to a movie. The clear wide right swing that completely knocked out the opponent dropping him into the canvas. Amazing fight

  12. Deontay Wilder fired his coach because of this. That should have happened a long time ago.
