Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder by TKO in the 7th round of Saturday’s fight. It wasn’t so much that Fury won, but how he won. Tyson Fury absolutely dominated this fight from start to finish. Fury’s prediction was a 2nd round knockout, and although that did not happen, he kept his word on the style of fight he was bringing. Fury said he would be the aggressor and push the pace, he delivered on that promise. Round 3 was the round that most dictated this fight. Fury catches Wilder with a big right hand after a jab and sent him to the canvas. Seeming to rupture his ear drum, Wilder was bleeding from the ear and was never able to get his legs back. Equilibrium clearly out of wack and getting pummeled by Fury, Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in the 7th round.
What’s Next For Tyson Fury?
Well, Deontay Wilder has an immediate rematch clause in his contract. Wilder has 30 days to file for a rematch, which he will almost surely do. If this were to not be the case, then we could see Fury look to take on Anthony Joshua who has 4 title belts of his own. If I had to guess, then I’m saying we will be seeing a Wilder vs Fury III. Love him or hate him, you have to respect Deontay Wilder’s heart. After the corner threw in the towel he was very unhappy. In the post fight interview he was quoted saying “I just wish my corner would have let me go out on my shield. I’m a warrior. It’s what I do.” The ruptured eardrum clearly threw of his equilibrium, but this should not take away from a masterful performance by Tyson Fury. I look forward to the rematch. Hold It.
