Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder delivered once again! The pair collided for the third time in Las Vegas on Saturday in arguably one of the best trilogy fights we have seen in boxing. Both men tasted the canvas but it was the Gypsy King who took home his belt after a huge blow in Round 11.

As the fight started we could see both men going for the win. It appeared as if it was going to be a short fight after Fury scored a knockdown in Round 3. Although Wilder was rattled, he showed a lion’s heart to get back up and continue, only to knock Fury down twice in Round 4. After these knockdowns, the fight kept changing momentum with Fury landing more significant strikes but we all know how dangerous Wilder’s right hand was, which kept him in the fight. In Round 10, a big right hand for Fury helped him score another knockdown and there was no coming back from that. In Round 11, Fury landed one of the best combos that sent Wilder to the canvas as got KO’d out cold.  

After knocking out Wilder for the second time in his career that too in this fashion, leads up to only one question – Is Tyson Fury the greatest Heavyweight on the planet?

There was little debate over where Tyson Fury (31-0) stood in the rankings after his second fight with Wilder in 2020 but now, there is no doubt that he’s the king of boxing’s premier division. He now holds the status after beating the best version of Deontay Wilder we have seen over the years. What makes him stand out in front of other heavyweight is his large body with tremendous endurance and pure boxing skills, not only in offense but in defense as well. Most importantly, it’s his will to become the GOAT that sets him apart. He got knocked down by one of the hardest punchers in the division four times and still stood up and defended his title. 

What’s next in line for the Gypsy King?

There is still a long wait for Fury for the unified Heavyweight Championship as Anthony Joshua activated his rematch clause with Oleksandr Usyk which means that the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles are tied up for a while. 

The WBC demanded Fury either defend his title against Usyk or the winner of Whyte VS Wallin. With Usyk busy with AJ, we can say that a fight between Fury and Whyte or Wallin is on the cards. It’s sad to see that there is no title unification bout coming up anytime soon but at least there’s a clear plan for the future for the Heavyweight Division.
