Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder went to war inside the ring on Saturday night in Las Vegas. While the heavyweight title trilogy fight exceeded expectations in the ring, it did not do as well on PPV. This paints a different picture from the in-person attendance at the T-Mobile Arena, where the two heavyweights fought in front of a packed electric crowd.

Reports suggest that the WBC and Ring title collision did just under 600,000 PPV buys. It was a massive drop from the estimated 800,000 PPV buys that the second fight received in February 2020.

Towards the last few rounds, Deontay Wilder’s tank was running on empty. Tyson Fury took advantage of this and raised his game. Wilder barely survived rounds, refusing to give up. However, in the 11th round, Fury connected with a right hand that sent Wilder to the canvas, resulting in a KO.

What’s next for Tyson Fury?

Tyson Fury will go on a well-earned break following his fight. After he comes back from his break, he will have to face the WBC’s mandatory challenger. Currently, Dillian Whyte holds the WBC interim heavyweight title of the world. He will face Otto Wallin next. The winner of that fight will then challenge ‘The Gypsy King’.
