Fury vs. Wilder 3 results: Tyson Fury flattens Deontay Wilder in instant classic

If there are any questions, Tyson Fury is still the best heavyweight in the world, and he proved it again on Saturday night.

Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) survived a couple of early knockdowns in his trilogy duel against rival Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) to fight back and land a knockout in the 11th round to keep his WBC & Ring Heavyweight Champion. After winning, Fury now has a decisive lead in his trilogy with two wins and a draw.

This is Fury’s second consecutive KO victory over Wilder after he beat Wilder by TKO in the seventh round in February.

To Wilder’s credit, he gave everything he had in the third meeting of the two boxing stars, and it wasn’t enough. The end came as Fury picked up the pace in the 11th round before landing with a clean right hand that dropped the exhausted Wilder. Referee Russell Mora didn’t even bother to count to 10, brushing off the game before Wilder’s body hit the canvas.

It was the end of a grueling back and forth battle at the start, as Fury won the first knockdown of the battle in the 3rd round, only to lose himself twice in the 4th round. This was the first time out of 32 Furies. -a professional career that he has ever knocked out twice in a round.

However, once Fury recovered and found his rhythm, he increased the pace that Wilder could not keep up with, and all subsequent rounds were mostly in Fury’s favor. Wilder was left to lean against the ropes and Fury to try and stop the Englishman’s onslaught.

Although Wilder still used the right of force throughout the competition, with each pass his attack slowed down and Fury was able to avoid any serious danger. Fury scored another knockdown in the 10th with a heavy right hand, which was the beginning of the end for Wilder.

After the fight, Fury was asked how he got through the early troubles.

“As the great John Wayne said,” I’m made of cast iron and cast iron, baby, “Fury replied.

He also paid tribute to Wilder, although he reminded everyone that there is only one real king in the heavyweight division.

“It was a great fight tonight, worthy of any trilogy in sports history,” Fury said. “I’m not going to make excuses, Wilder is a tough fighter, he gave me a run for my money tonight. I have always said that I am the best in the world and he is second. “
