Why Tyson Fury Defeated Me - Deontay Wilder (Photos)

Published by Nairaland on Sun, 10 Oct 2021

<blockquote>Tyson Fury retained his WBC heavyweight crown on Saturday with a spectacular 11th-round knockout of Deontay Wilder as their trilogy fight delivered a boxing classic.<br><br>Wilder says Furys size was a problem for him to handle after he was rushed to the hospital.<br><br>In brief remarks, he acknowledged he had struggled to deal with Furys size.<br><br><b>I did my best, but it wasnt good enough, said Wilder.<br><br>Im not sure what happened. I know that in training, he did certain things, and I also knew that he didnt come in at 277 to be a ballet dancer.<br><br>He came to lean on me, try to rough me up and he succeeded.</b><br><br>In an epic battle in front of 15,820 fans at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, both fighters were knocked down on multiple occasions in an enthralling contest full of improbable twists and turns.<br><br>Fury looked to have gained the upper hand after flooring Wilder in the third round, only for the 35-year-old from Alabama to respond with two knockdowns that had the English champion clinging on desperately in the fourth.<br><br>But it was the bigger, heavier Furylanding the cleaner and more damaging blowswho finished the stronger, and the champion had Wilder down once again in the 10th with a right hook.<br><br>Wilder responded bravely to that knockdown by wobbling Fury in return.<br><br>But the brutal energy-sapping nature of the fight, and Furys relentless physicality, finally took its toll on Wilder in the 11th.<br><br>With the American exhausted and on the ropes, Fury landed the decisive combination.<br><br>A right uppercut scrambled Wilders senses before Fury crashed a right hook into his opponents temple that sent the challenger tumbling to the canvas, barely conscious.</blockquote><br>Source: <a rel=ugc href="https://www.google.com/amp/s/punchng.com/why-tyson-fury-defeated-me-deontay-wilder/%3famp">https://www.google.com/amp/s/punchng.com/why-tyson-fury-defeated-me-deontay-wilder/%3famp</a>
