Tyson Fury has knocked Deontay Wilder out and cleared doubts when he dropped him twice in seven rounds in their rematch.
The undefeated Fury, came out more aggressive to not only drop Wilder twice during their seven match round but forced the American’s trainers to throw in the towel.
After Wilder’s trainers threw in the towel during the seventh round of their bout on Sunday, February 23, it became obvious that Fury had become the new WBC heavyweight champion.
England’s Fury, who has had 21 knockouts in 30 fights, came not only prepared but battered Wilder so bad that his co-trainers, Jay Deas and Mark Breland, decided to save him in the seventh round.
Though not happy the fight was stopped by referee Kenny Bayless, Wilder couldn’t hold back the tears.
Speaking to ESPN’s Bernardo Osuna after the fight, Wilder said, “I’m doing good.”
“Things like this happen. The best man won tonight, but my corner threw in the towel and I was ready to go out on my shield. I had of things going on heading into this fight. It is what it is, but I make no excuses tonight. I just wish my corner would have let me go out on my shield. I’m a warrior. He had a great performance and we will be back stronger,” Wilder said.
Fury’s technical-knockout victory settled the controversy about who is the best amongst the two as the scorecards were more than glaring.
Wilder recorded his first defeat after a total of 42 fights and winning 41 of the fights in knockouts.
It is unsure when and if Anthony Joshua, the English born Nigerian will take up the challenge against Fury, who is also a Brit.
