Gypsy King has proven his mettle and set an audacious record by beating former undefeated heavy weight champion, Deontay Wilder in their clash a while ago.
Fury attained the feat by out-fighting the knockout artist in one of boxing’s most spectacular rematches in years.
Fury defeated Deontay Wilder by a seventh-round TKO Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, capturing the WBC world heavyweight title in the process.
Many thought the powerful Wilder would win by stoppage after he knocked Fury down twice en route to a draw in December 2018, but it was Fury who forced referee Kenny Bayless to call the fight.
Fury knocked down Wilder in the second and fifth rounds, and a bloodied, shaky Wilder was unable to fight back in the decisive seventh.
For years, Fury clung to his unofficial status as lineal champion after he was stripped of titles he won against Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. Now, there’s no denying his merit.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) remains undefeated and will likely try to set up a unification title fight against Anthony Joshua of Nigeria who holds the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles.
