59

Tyson Fury defended his WBC heavyweight world title with a victory over Deontay Wilder in their third fight Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Fury, who won the title from Wilder with a seventh-round TKO victory in February 2020, the rematch of a disputed split draw back in 2018, was the better fighter once again. Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs), 33, of Manchester, England, had promised another KO victory and said he will send Wilder to an early retirement. He got the victory and despite getting knocked down twice in the fourth round, put on a dominating performance. Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs), 35, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, had no answer for Fury's movement and jab and appeared to slow dawn late in the fight. Round-by-round analysis: Round 11: Finally, Tyson Fury finishes Deontay Wilder with a brutal knockout. Wilder was dropped like a sack of bricks and this time he wasn't going to beat the count as the ref immediately stopped the fight. It's a 11th-round knockout for Fury who retains his heavyweight title. Round 10: Tyson Fury drops Deontay Wilder hard with another missile of a right hand, and again, somehow, someway, Wilder beats the count.

Round 8: Deontay Wilder is almost falling over when he throws, but he is still throwing, despite all the punishment and despite all the massive shots the 277-pound Fury lands. The end is seemingly near but Wilder always has that big right hand. 10-9, Fury. 76-72, Fury. Round 7: Deontay Wilder is completely out on his feet but he's incredibly game. He's pressing on and trying but Tyson Fury is battering him with bomb after bomb. Referee appeared close to stopping it. 10-8, Fury. 66-63, Fury. Round 6: Tyson Fury continues to press forward but both fighters seem to be tired.
