Tyson Fury defended his WBC heavyweight world title with a victory over Deontay Wilder in their third fight Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Fury, who won the title from Wilder with a seventh-round TKO victory in February 2020, the rematch of a disputed split draw back in 2018, was the better fighter once again. Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs), 33, of Manchester, England, had promised another KO victory and said he will send Wilder to an early retirement. He got the victory and despite getting knocked down twice in the fourth round, put on a dominating performance.
Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs), 35, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, had no answer for Fury’s movement and jab and appeared to slow dawn late in the fight.
THE GYPSY KING REIGNS SUPREME.
