However, Fury responded well, and he scored three knockdowns in this epic clash. Out of all the knockdowns that Fury scored, there was one instance in round 10 when Wilder was about to strip the Brit. ‘The Bronze Bomber’ held Fury’s shorts while going down to the canvas. However, he lost his grip and just fell to the canvas.

Recently, Top Rank Boxing shared a Behind the Scenes video of this fight, wherein they recorded this incident.

Wilder was the aggressor in the first few rounds. He employed his long and solid jabs and attacked Fury’s body. But ‘The Gypsy King’ had no intentions to let Wilder dictate the pace of the fight. As a result, he came up with some slick counterattacks to put his American foe on the back foot.

The pair exchanged some notable punches, but Fury was much more accurate. Also, he didn’t look tired. On the other hand, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ looked wobbled in the later rounds and his resistance ended in the penultimate round.
