“There’s quite a few referees, when Tyson fury was battering Deontay Wilder, they would’ve stopped the fight. And this was Wilder’s argument about the first fight, or the second fight when he did get stopped.”

“He felt like he could’ve kept going. Judging by this fight, he probably is correct. He probably could have kept going but he might have got knocked out there but he could’ve kept going.”

“In this fight it looked like in that one round, I think it was the second, where Tyson Fury dropped Deontay Wilder and he barely survived and he made it to the end bell. What if that was the beginning of the round? What if, who knows, you never know. So could he have gone on from the second fight when they stopped the fight?”

“Probably, you know, maybe it was like for his health, that his corner threw the towel in and stopped the fight. Maybe they know him and they know how tough he is. That’s what you see in this fight, you see how f*cking tough he is, how much pain and how much punishment he endured and still was dangerous, still hurt Fury.” Rogan said.

What’s next for Deontay Wilder? 

The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed Deontay ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Wilder a six-month suspension after getting brutally knocked down by Tyson ‘The Gypsy King’ Fury. Fury sent Wilder crashing to the floor three times during their fight.

Wilder will now want to take an easy fight, something to boost his confidence and get him back to winning ways. Make no mistake, Wilder remains one of the best heavyweights in the division, and if he is able to reinvent himself, he may get another title shot in the future.
