Tyson Fury defeats Deontay Wilder, retains WBC and Lineal Heavyweight titles [PHOTOS]



Tyson Fury knocks out Deontay Wilder


British professional boxer who is also a WBC and Lineal Heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury has knocked out Deontay Wilder for the third and final time Sunday morning, October 10 in a very entertaining heavyweight clash in Las Vegas.


Fury delivered the final blow in the 11th round to end Wilder’s defiant display.

In a tense opening round, Wilder tried to enforce his aggressive tactics as he forced Fury onto the back foot with stinging body shots and clubbing right hands.

But Fury began to find the range with his hurtful straight right hand in the second, then unloaded it perfectly in the third to daze Wilder, who was cuffed to the canvas. With Wilder badly hurt, Fury went for the finish in the fourth, but he wilted to the canvas after a huge right hand from the Alabama man.

Fury, 33, was floored twice in the fourth round, having sent Wilder to the canvas in the third round.


But the Gypsy King, still undefeated in his career, rallied and then sent Wilder into a continuous barrage of onslaughts in the next rounds.

After giving Wilder a knockdown in the 10th round, Fury sealed the victory in the 11th round with a devastating punch that sent his American rival crashing to the floor.

This is the third time both fighters faced each other. The first fight ended as a draw which many thought Fury won, the second was a win by Fury and now this is the third.

With the win, Wilder has now confirmed his status as the best heavyweight boxer in the world and will now look to fight the winner of the rematch between Oleksandr USyk and Anthony Joshua for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world.


Fury is ranked as the world’s best active heavyweight by ESPN, the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board (TBRB), and BoxRec, as well as the third-best active boxer, pound for pound, by BoxRec, seventh by the TBRB, and eighth by ESPN.
