Fury began this fight slowly, but he was quick enough to counterattack Wilder with some slick jabs. The Briton didn’t want ‘The Bronze Bomber’ to dictate the pace of the fight. As a result, he kept coming back with some fiery strikes.

As the contest moved ahead, the tussle between the two only got better. Fury scored the first knockdown, but Wilder dropped him twice in round 4.

However, ‘The Gypsy King’ made adjustments to smother Wilder in the later rounds. Eventually, Fury earned the finish in the penultimate round.
