Tyson fury Just knocked out Deontay Wilder In the 11th round … it was one of the biggest heavyweight battles ever!
The fight was great … 33-year-old Fury dropped 35-year-old Wilder in the third round. Deontay beat the count … and went through the end of the round, despite being on an unstable leg.
But on the fourth day … the bronze trouser bar finally connected to the hard, straight right and sent Fury to the canvas. Tyson stood up … and Wilder pushed the problem, dropped the combination on Fury and dropped him again. Gipsy Kings survived.
Wilder seemed to be a more tired man, so the middle round belonged primarily to Fury.
On the 10th, Fury was linked to a heavy right to defeat Deontay. Again, Wilder showed an incredible heart and got up … and actually ended the round with the blazing momentum of the punch, fixing Fury in the corner.
On the 11th, with Wilder down on the scorecard, Fury regained great rights and sent Deontay to the canvas.
The referee did not count … immediately stopped the fight.
It was the third time the boxers faced each other in the ring. Their first fight was declared a draw. Fury KOed Wilder in the rematch. And the third battle once again belonged to Fury … now arguably the heaviest in the world.
The fight was absolutely electrical … and both men showed amazing will and determination.
As for the ringwalk … they were also extravagant.
The Las Vegas crowd was studded with stars … Magic Johnson, Michael Strahan, Shaquille O’Neal When Vince Vaughn Sitting on the ringside.
Social media was also lively … Lebron James tWheating about Instant Classic.
“HELLUVA FIGHT !!! CLASSIC # FuryWilder3,” said the NBA superstar.
After the battle, Fury performed a “Walking in Memphis” rendition, similar to the Gipsy Kings tradition … remixed for Las Vegas.
Tyson also said he tried to bury the hatchet with Wilder … but Deontay insisted he wouldn’t wave. Fury said he would pray for Wilder.
Great respect for both fighters!
