Tyson Fury Wins Heavyweight Title Rematch against Deontay Wilder
Tyson Fury was Crowned the WBC Heavyweight Champion at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas following a seven-round victory over Deontay Wilder. Tyson looked to this matchup as some sort of redemption match after their 2018 contest where he felt he was denied the victory. Starting out the fight with complete dominance over Deontay, Fury made sure to bring Wilder down in the third with a jab and a right hand, a duo Wilder himself have used to knock out opponents on numerous occasions. Down again, Wilder had no chance as he was forced to the ropes while Tyson delivered punch after punch leaving the American quite unstable.
Even with points deduction for an obvious foul, Fury looked undeterred as he continued to unload as many hits as he could get in forcing Deontay to the corner. There was still no slowing down for the Irishman as he continued to push, opening the seventh round with a sweeping left that leaves an unsteady even more so. Unable to return blows, referee called the match at the 1:39 time mark to give Fury the TKO victory. But the Wilder’s corner team threw in the towel before the referee stopped the match. Wilder was immediately rushed to the hospital after the match and therefore was unable to make the post match conference.
