The boxing world and sports world has come alive following a truly phenomenal performance from Tyson Fury in the fight capital of the world on Saturday night.
Fighting at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Fury dethroned WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder with one of the great performances of recent heavyweight championship history via a shut out beating with two knockdowns — culminating in a 7th round stoppage.
The win saw Fury solidify his lineal heavyweight champion status as well as adding the WBC strap to his collection.
One of boxing’s other super stars Mexican warrior Saul Canelo Alvarez said of the fight’s end:
A good decision to stop the fight indeed.
Although Wilder wasn’t happy with his corner throwing in the towel, as he’s a fighter through and through at the end of the day, and understandably wanted to go out on his shield, Mark Breland did that from his heart out of purely care and compassion for him.
Deontay will come again. No problem.
As for now though, all credit to the new WBC heavyweight champion of the world — Tyson ‘The Gypsy King’ Fury.
Big respect fella. Very good.
