Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3- a look back at an epic fight

The third fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury at one point seemed out of the question. Fury announced on his social media channels that a fight between him and Anthony Joshua was finalized to take place in Saudi Arabia. However, at the 11th hour, an arbitrator ruled in favor of Wilder and stated that Fury needed to award him his trilogy fight.

The bout was initially scheduled for July 24th. Unfortunately, it had to be pushed back to October 9th as Fury tested positive for COVID-19. There was a lot of talk between the two men going into the fight. Both ‘The Gypsy King’ and ‘The Bronze Bomber’ promised that the fight would not go the distance. 

It was Fury who secured the first knockdown of the fight in round three. Wilder bounced back and secured two knockdowns of his own in the very next round. Fury got back up to his feet and from then on dominated every single round. He eventually secured a finish in the 11th round after having hurt Wilder severely multiple times in the rounds prior.
