In a rematch from last year’s draw, Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO) remained undefeated with a seventh round TKO of Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KO). In their last fight, Fury won most of the rounds, but was knocked down twice by Wilder. Those knockdowns made the fight a draw last time. This time, Fury promised everyone that he was going to look for the knockout and win the WBC Heavyweight Championship.
Not too many people believed him because his last fight went the full 12 rounds with Otto Wallin. Although Fury is 6’9″, his normal style is to box from the outside.
However, Fury chose to be the aggressor in this fight and returned the favor by knocking out Wilder in the third and the fifth rounds before the fight was stopped in the seventh round. Wilder will now have 30 days to determine if he wants an immediate rematch.
