Tyson Fury produces masterclass to beat Deontay Wilder, wins WBC heavyweight title
Nearly 15 months after their first meeting ended in controversy, there was no debating who the winner was in the rematch.
In the super fight rematch between the two titans, Fury took control late in the first round and never relinquished it, knocking down Wilder twice and bloodying him en route to the referee stopping the fight in the seventh where Wilder’s corner threw in the towel.
Fury used his reach advantage to continually beat Wilder to the punch. He took total control in the third where he landed a right hand to Wilder’s left ear to drop him to the canvas.Wilder never regained his legs or footing after that, wobbling through the rest of the match.
Fury again dropped Wilder in the fifth with a body punch and then caught him in the corner with a flurry of punches in the seventh where it ended.
Fury (30-0-1) now takes the WBC crown from Wilder (42-1-1) and settles the score between the two.The first fight between the boxers in December of 2018 was called a draw.
