However, Fury admits Wilder’s prowess and has tipped him to surpass every other heavyweight in the roster. Still fresh from his win in the re-match, Fury connected with the world via Behind The Gloves Podcast and talked about several things, including ‘The Bronze Bomber’

“I’ve got no love for Deontay Wilder at all, I think he’s a piece of s***, but I don’t think any of the other heavyweights can beat Deontay Wilder. There’s only one man who can beat him, and that’s me. I think he annihilates the rest of them,” said Tyson Fury. (H/T: Michael Benson)

Before falling short in front of the Brit, Deontay Wilder was on an impeccable run in the heavyweight division. After Mike Tyson, he was being touted as the ultimate American heavyweight Knockout artist. Becoming a champion in 2015, Wilder defended his belt multiple times and set a record of 42 (41 KOs)- 0-1.

Several fans even backed him to stop ‘The Gypsy King’ after a fierce encounter in the original fight. Although it was turned into a draw, both men had their significant moments. But many believed it was Wilder’s win, as he was lucky to floor Tyson Fury in the fight. Nevertheless, Fury rose back and continued the fight to pave the path for an epic re-match.

The rematch saw a lopsided encounter as Fury appeared flawless from the very initial stage. He outboxed Wilder and used rangy jabs to dismantle his American rival. In round three, Fury floored Wilder for the first time, advancing on the judge’s scorecard.

As the fight continued, Wilder appeared bleak and had loose footwork. Fury floored him a couple of more times before closing the show in round seven. Wilder’s cornerman Mark Breland threw in the towel and stopped the fight. As Wilder suffered the maiden defeat of his pro-career, Fury became the new WBC heavyweight champion.
