Fury remains undefeated and WBC heavyweight champion

Fury entered the ring dressed in spartan to the sound of AC / DC while Wilder wore a much lighter and less elaborate costume than the one he had blamed for his defeat on the other hand.

The fight began with Wilder firing three shots at Fury’s body in the first ten seconds.

The American followed up with a series of straight hands on the Briton’s mid section, which apparently left him largely confused for the majority of the first round.

Wilder posted a whole new game plan in the opening three minutes, but ate a huge “Gypsy King” right hand at the end of the session.

At the start of the second, Wilder returned to his body punches but Fury instantly increased the tempo in response.

The champion started firing his own body shots in the second round, while the challenger attempted more erratic head shots that missed the mark.

In the third, it seemed like every exchange could end the fight as the two men tossed heavy leather.

Fury’s punches seemed to hurt Wilder, then he made the breakthrough.

The “Gypsy King” hammered a huge right hand which knocked out the “Bronze Bomber” and saw him collapse on the canvas.

Fury looked in trouble

Incredibly, as he stepped out for the fifth round, Fury seemed to have come to his senses.

He started the fifth by landing a few notable lefts as Wilder started to look tired.

On lap six, both men showed signs of fatigue and there was a lot of stalling as they reached halfway.

Coming into the second half, Fury regained control and hammered Wilder with a huge right hand.

Fury regained control and dominated Wilder

Somehow Wilder stayed on his feet and continued to fight.

Fury landed an incredible shoot-off at the end of the seventh inning, and again Wilder remarkably refused to fade.

This pattern continued until the eighth as the challenger’s resilience was constantly tested by the champion’s big blows.

The doctor examined Wilder early in the ninth inning, but argued he could continue.

He was eventually allowed to do so, although it was another three-minute penalty for him.

The final rounds were punitive for Wilder

In the tenth, Fury pummeled Wilder again and finally made another breakthrough.

Wilder hit the canvas for the second time with a huge right hand and looked defeated.

Surprisingly, once again he got up and fought until the end of the round.

In the dying seconds, he landed a jumpsuit on Fury that appeared to momentarily injure him when the bell rang.

The end was near, however, as Fury finally found the finish with a KO right hook on round 11.

Wilder collapsed and the fight was instantly cut short, but luckily he quickly recovered and left the ring on his feet.

The fight was duly canceled

Fury, who had tried and failed to kiss his beaten rival in the end, serenaded the crowd with a rendition of Walking in Memphis, changing the line to Walking in Vegas.

The 33-year-old Briton then said from the ring: “It was a big fight tonight, worthy of the best trilogies.

“I won’t make any excuses, Wilder is a top fighter, he gave me a hard time. I always say that I am the best fighter in the world and that he is the second best.

“Never doubt me. When the chips are low, I can still deliver.
