Last Saturday we saw two gladiators go at it in the heavyweight division. Current WBC Heavyweight Titleholder Deontay Wilder faced off against Lineal Champion Tyson Fury.
From the opening bell, we saw a one-sided fight for the most part. Fury was having his way landing an assortment of jabs and flurries on the “Bronze Bomber“. For the most part, Wilder’s skillset has been questioned in the ranks of facing true competition.
In his previous fight against top contender Luis Ortiz, Wilder was desperate to score a TKO. Through several moments of being stunned Wilder came out on top showing he can take a punch.
With Wilder’s desire to fight heavyweight king Anthony Joshua, Fury stands in the way of the dream fight everyone is waiting for. Saturday night lived up to the hype with Wilder scoring two knockdown late in the fight against Tyson Fury.
In the end, Fury’s tactical boxing skills wasn’t enough to afford the win. Ultimately, the fight was ruled a split decision. Because of the controversial ending, the WBC governing body has ordered an immediate rematch.
