Tyson Fury delivered a stunning performance to stop Deontay Wilder and become a two-time heavyweight world champion.
Fury started well and never slowed down, dropping the American for the first time in his career in the third round.
Although the champion survived, he looked short of ideas as Fury’s aggressive tactics took him by surprise.
Wilder was able to stagger through another round but was dropped again the fifth by a body shot.
Wilder lasted until the seventh round when the towel came in after another sustained attack in the corner.
Here is how Fury reacted to the victory:
“A big shout out to Deontay Wilder. He came here tonight and he manned up and he really did show the heart of a
champion. I hit him with a clean right that dropped him and he got back up.
He is a warrior. He will be back. He will bec championagain.
“But I will say, the king has returned to the top of the throne!”
Fury now has the WBC , lineal and Ring Magazine belts.
