Tyson Fury beats Deontay Wilder in an all-time classic to retain WBC Heavyweight title

Tyson Fury for the third time defended his WBC heavyweight title by knocking out Deontay Wilder in the eleventh round. The first fight which ended in draw was held in December 2018. In February 2020, there was another clash where Fury popularly known as "The Gypsy King" captured the victory over Deontay (The Bronze Bomber) in the seventh round. That match being the first match Wilder has lost in his career gave Fury the WBC and Magazine Heavyweight Belt. That match was the last time each fighter was seen in the ring until last Saturday night (9/10/2021) in Las Vegas.

The British fighter (Fury) was knocked down twice but managed to emerge as the winner after knocking the American fighter down the third time in the 11th round. The 33-year-old man after last Saturday's match became the third-best active boxer after Floyd Patterson and Mohammad Ali and the world's best active heavyweight according to rankings made by ESPN. "Wilder is a tough guy and I will pray to God to soften his heart", he said after the match.
