With the victory, the British fighter won the trilogy against the American and is enshrined in the highest category of world boxing.
The World Boxing Council heavyweight championship remains in the hands of Tyson Fury after a great performance against Deontay Wilder to close his trilogy at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fury retained the belt with a brutal knockout in the 11th round after a battle in which both contenders visited the mat repeatedly, but in the end, the ‘Gypsy King’ came out with his fist raised.

The fight began with an exchange of blows, there was no study round, with Wilder taking the initiative and even landing better punches, but Fury was the one who caused the most damage when in the third he sent him to the canvas with a powerful bomb.
Against all odds, Wilder got up and set off the champion’s alarms, sending him to the canvas twice in the fourth, however, he could not finish it and from that moment the fight was carried out with the rhythm dictated by Fury.
From the fifth on, the British owned the ring, constantly hurting Wilder’s face, who stood showing a big heart.

But the scares were not over for Fury, who sent Wilder to the canvas in the 10th round before the challenger found the face of the ‘Gypsy King’ to put him in poor condition before the bell.
Wilder’s motivation was short-lived, as Fury dominated again in the 11th and was in charge of ending the trilogy with a powerful blow to the face that made the ‘Bronze Bomber’ fall face-to-face to the canvas, forcing referee Russell Mora to intervene to stop the lawsuit.
