After accepting the ‘Fight of the Year Award’, the Briton said, “I’m absolutely ecstatic and overwhelmed to be recognized by Ring Magazine yet again.”

“It was a great fight but not so great for me and Deontay because fights like that knock years off your life, but it was an epic battle and a great trilogy. It was definitely all worth it,” he added (h/t Sky Sports)

The big men came out with high intensity and knocked each other down multiple times. Though Fury had an upper hand in the fight, he still got rocked as he went down on the canvas twice in round 4.
