Until now, Wilder and Fury have met each other twice inside the boxing ring. The first time they locked horns was in 2018. This was one of the biggest clashes in the iconic division, wherein both the boxers kept fans on their toes till the last bell.

Throughout the fight, both men performed admirably and threw some great punches. Eventually, though, this contest ended in a draw. Later, a rematch took place on 22nd February 2020 to settle Fury and Wilder’s unfinished business. In this fight, the Briton star went full throttle with his aggressive approach.

Since the start, Fury employed his jabs and right hands to press Wilder. Citing Fury’s domination, Wilder remained on the back foot for a major time, thus failing to connect any significant shot with his right hand. As a result, he ended up losing the fight with a devastating T/KO in round 7.
