Leading up to the third fight, there were a lot of accusations from Deontay Wilder as to why he lost the second fight. ‘The Bronze Bomber’ believed it was not Fury’s skill but a lot of external factors that swayed the result in his favor. Wilder also fired Mark Breland and hired Malik Scott as his head trainer.

The fight started off well for Wilder, who invested in body shots early and often. As the fight went on, Fury started getting into the groove of things. In the third round, Fury secured the first knockdown of the fight. In the very next round, Wilder secured not one but two knockdowns. Fury got back up both times and was never really hurt to the point where Wilder was able to finish him. 

As the fight went on, it was becoming increasingly evident that Fury’s game plan was coming to fruition. ‘The Gypsy King’ came in 277-pounds and clinched with Wilder early and often and forced ‘The Bronze Bomber’ to carry all of his weight in every exchange.

In the latter half of the fight, Wilder was fatigued and was barely able to defend himself. This allowed Fury to land the final blow in round 11 and put an end to one of the greatest trilogies in boxing history.
