The Gypsy King has proven once again that he was too much for Deontay Wilder. The “Bronze Bomber” suffered a devastating loss that jeopardizes his career.
Tyson Fury knocked out Wilder in the 11th round of their trilogy bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Fury has 22 wins by knockout.
“Don’t ever doubt me,” Fury said in his post-fight interview. “When the chips are down, I can always deliver.”
He last two wins have come via a knockout against Wilder. Fury also won by TKO over the Alabama-based fighter in February 2020.
Fury, who hails from the United Kingdom, showed that his power was too much for Wilder. He knocked down the former champion several times in the bout.
Three of his last four wins have come via knockout. The lone fight where Fury (31-0-1) did not knock out an opponent was when he defeated Otto Wallin by unanimous decision two years ago.
All four wins came after his split decision loss to Wilder in December 2018.
Fury will likely face the winner of the rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua next. Last month in a huge upset, Usyk won over Joshua in England.
Shortly after the bout, Joshua exercised his rematch clause to set up a future fight between the two heavyweights.
Wilder’s window to be a championship fighter may have closed. He was once the most feared man in the heavyweight division.
The Tuscaloosa, Alabama fighter (42-2-1) has not won a bout in nearly two years. His last win came in a knockout over Luis Ortíz in November 2019.
What’s next for Wilder? Right now, no one knows. But we do know that it’s going to be hard for him to be a heavyweight championship contender once again.
He is not the fighter he used to be.
