Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury collided once again this evening in Las Vegas for the WBC, Ring, and Lineal heavyweight titles.
‘The Gypsy King‘ and ‘The Bronze Bomber’ had first met in December of 2018. On that night in Los Angeles, Fury seemed to win the majority of the rounds, but Wilder scored a devastating 12th-round knockout that looked like it spelled the end for Fury. Miraculously, the British standout was able to recover and the bout was ultimately ruled a split draw by the judges in attendance.
Both Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder were paid handsomely for their respective efforts this evening. The Athletic reported that both heavyweights were guaranteed a minimum of $28 million for tonight’s rematch.
Fury came in much heavier for this second tilt with Wilder, weighing in at a whopping 273lbs of what he called “pure British beef”.
‘The Bronze Bomber’ also put on some extra mass for this fight, Wilder tipped the scales at 231lbs respectively.
Boxing analyst Teddy Atlas had blasted Tyson Fury for over his physique ahead of tonight’s fight, suggesting the British fighter had showed up in “poor form”.
Tonight’s Wilder vs. Fury rematch proved to be a one sided affair. Fury was able to get after Wilder right from the opening bell and only continued to build off that momentum.
In round three, ‘The Gypsy King’ would drop Deontay Wilder with a right hand. He would continue his assault in round four which culminated in another knockdown in round five.
By the midway point of round seven, Wilder’s corner had seen enough and opted to throw in the towel.
