Tyson Fury woke-up twice to beat Deontay Wilder as he retained his WBC heavyweight title. He beat the challenger by TKO in the 11th round of an all-time classic, in which he twice rose from the canvas.
Tyson Fury has retained the WBC heavyweight championship after he won the third fight of his trilogy with Deontay Wilder on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
“I’m the best fighter in the world and he’s the second best,” said Fury after the fight, which contained five knockdowns in total. “I was hurt, he’s a tough man … it was a great fight tonight, worthy of the best trilogies.”
The result establishes Fury’s supremacy over his American opponent once and for all after their first fight ended in a split draw and their second in a knockout win for the Briton.
In the build-up to Saturday’s fight, Wilder had accused Fury of underhanded tactics in the second fight. But Fury’s second successive victory leaves little room for doubt over who is the superior fighter.
