Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury held apart at weigh

A Wrestling Fan’s Guide To Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury Evander Holyfield Explains How the Boxer Outworking the Puncher Won't Be the Case in Wilder vs. Fury
Michele Schwartz | 02 December, 2018, 12:06

Both fighters endured 12 closely contested rounds, with Fury dropping to the ground and nearly being counted out in the final round.

But Fury recovered remarkably after he looked gone when thudding to the canvas in the final round. He will be reminded that Tyson Fury is a most hard man to encounter and that Deontay Wilder is a terribly unsafe puncher.

"If it's a great fight and fans want to see the rematch then why not?" He will know, too, that such an exciting fight and event has left... That's the second best heavyweight in the world behind me'.

The two undefeated heavyweights have combined for 58 knockouts in their 67 career fights, with Deontay Wilder holding the majority of those finishes with 39.

In the final round, Wilder again dropped Fury within the first minute with a devastating one-two, the contender laying flat out and looking as though he had been knocked spark out, but the rising and brushing off the punch with usual bravado.

Fury by contrast cleverly picked his moments, finding Wilder with greater accuracy and causing a nasty swelling over the American's left eye.

Both fighters are expected to meet again in a rematch, with Fury determined to prove himself as the rightful victor in a second fight.

Wilder, having successfully defended his title, said he hoped for a rematch, either in the United Kingdom or USA, and also extended the same gratitude to Fury for a fight that will surely live long in the memory.

But Fury gradually grew in confidence, regularly taunting Wilder by throwing his arms up in the air or behind his back.

'I am a fighting man, I was never going to be knocked out tonight.

Wilder however suddenly found a devastating combination just when he needed it in the 12th round.

Incredibly however, Fury managed to pick himself up and clear his head to survive the remainder of the round and escape with a draw.
