Tyson Fury Defeat Deontay Wilder Via TKO

Tyson Fury delivered a stunning performance to stop Deontay Wilder and become a two-time heavyweight world champion.

Fury started well and never slowed down, dropping the American for the first time in his career in the third round. Although the champion survived, he looked short of ideas as Fury’s aggressive tactics took him by surprise.

Wilder was able to stagger through another round but was dropped again the fifth by a body shot. Again the champion showed remarkable resilience to see out the stanza but he looked short of time.

Wilder lasted until the seventh round when the towel came in after a sustained attack in the corner.

Fury came agonizingly close to beating Wilder 14 months ago when he clambered off the canvas twice to hear the final bell.

He looked to have done enough to dethrone the long-reigning champion but was denied victory when the judges scored the bout a draw.

Negotiations began to stage an immediate rematch but Fury pulled out of the talks to sign an £80million, five-fight deal with US broadcaster ESPN.

Instead of another shot at the only world title to elude him, Fury dispatched Tom Schwarz in the second round while Wilder demolished Dominic Breazeale inside three minutes.

Fury was then dragged into a dog fight by Otto Wallin last September when he suffered a nasty cut above his right eye in the third round before dragging himself through until the final bell.

Wilder, meanwhile, KO’d Luis Ortiz in their November rematch with a stunning one-punch knockout to set up the sequel with Fury.

Fury walked to the ring accompanied by his new trainer SugarHill Steward who was drafted in to replace Ben Davison who had played a huge part in Fury’s comeback in 2018.

Wilder, as has become tradition, wore a custom-made mask for his entrance into the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Fury meanwhile entered on a throne wearing a gold crown and took his time reaching the squared circle.
