Tyson Fury wins the wild boxing scene
The third duel between heavyweight boxers Fury and Wilder will be great thanks to strong boxing. The two-time reigning heavyweight champion took a knockout himself – but it was a wake-up call for the British.
The trilogy usually ends with a bang, and the third boxing match between giants Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is a real spectacle for the audience in Las Vegas. World Champion Fury defended his title by winning by knockout in the eleventh round.
It was really amazing when they moved into the arena. While Wilder was wearing a rhinestone-encrusted robe and mask, Fury placed one on top. He presented himself as open-minded as usual. Disguised as a Roman general and on AC/DC music, the undefeated Briton marched through the entire yard sale in Las Vegas.
Then the battle began promisingly for the challenger Wilder. The American pressed on the first lap and Fury was increasingly holding back. Despite his weight of around 130 kilograms, the 33-year-old Briton looked agile and remained dangerous with bodily blows.
Too strong anger on Wilder to snatch
On lap three, it got really wild for the first time. Wilder’s powerful right swing attacked Fury, who responded with two straight lines and sent Wilder to the ground. Then Wilder saved himself in the snatch, saving the American Round Bell from a knockout blow.
On lap four, Fury surprisingly got the order. Wilder was able to recover a bit during the lap break and kept looking to grab the grab to get stability. Then the clean swearing pushed Fury to the ground, the wild American gladiators followed. More blows brought the British back to the plates, but shortly before the end of the round he was back on his feet.
However, the downpour was a wake-up call for Fury, which only got stronger in the following rounds. The bloody lip and bulging eye on Wilder were the first visible effects of the many blows of fury. On the tenth lap, Wilder got down to his knees again after a hook, but was able to continue boxing.
World Champion Sings “Walking in Vegas”
Passionate boxing Wilder saved himself from round to round, but a few minutes before the official end of the fight, the American was no longer able to block Fury’s blows. The right hook sent Wilder’s chin to the ground and Fury got the knockout punch.
In the first duel in 2018, Fury had to be content with a draw with the then world champion from the USA despite his clear superiority, and in early 2020 he wrested the WBC title from Wilder by technical knockout and it was Wilder’s first defeat in 44 matches, after who accused him of Fury smuggled weights in his gloves. Even before the third meeting, there was a breakdown between the two opponents. Wilder’s wrath was scolded as “a bum”, a “piece of shit” and a “pussy”. Even the mandatory asterisk has been abolished.
Accordingly, after the third duel, there was a small party in Wilder’s direction. “It was a great fight,” Fury said after the fight. “I’ve always said I’m the best boxer in the world, I’ve shown that and he’s the second best.” The Briton sang the audience in the style of fury and spontaneously sang “Walk in Memphis” by Mark Cohn – but Memphis became “Vegas” in his version.
