According to the two-time heavyweight champion from England, Tyson Fury left Deontay Wilder’s knockout.

Over three years, Wilder went about thirty rounds with Fury, culminating in two stoppage wins for the “Gypsy King” and a draw.

The Bronze Bomber did his best to put Fury on the canvas for a ten count. However, stubborn Fury could not defeat the American puncher.

Trilogy by Deontay Wilder

In the first fight, Fury hit the deck twice and nearly destroyed it. He lost consciousness in the twelfth round, but somehow managed to pull himself together enough to get to his feet and finish.

This earned him a draw that could easily have been a win as he dominated the rounds where he stayed on the feet.

Four months later, Fury changed his trainer and game plan for the second fight. Bringing in Sugarhill Steward turned out to be a masterstroke.

Cronk’s understudy since Emmanuel Steward stepped up to the plate. He saw the huge difference in weight and urged Fury to take advantage.

So he did.

From the opening of the call to st MGM Grand Garden Arena, Fury jumped on Wilder. His attacks had purpose and resulted in Wilder succumbing to a relentless effort.

Seven rounds of dominance ended with Wilder’s trainer Mark Breland throwing in the towel.

After long negotiations, the third battle took place in October last year. Once again, Fury went down twice and took Wilder’s best punches.

But his tactics, learned from Sugarhill, again proved too much for Wilder. The result was a stoppage in the eleventh round.

The punches landed

Still, Fury took punches from arguably the most powerful puncher in the history of the sport in all three fights.

Now, months later, Fury says those punches will likely end his career. Speaking at a fan event, the Marcombo man explained why.

“I had bumps on the back of my head like fists [after fighting Deontay Wilder]” Fury said.

“I was stunned, I didn’t remember anything. But I was like, “I’ve been jailed four times?” I thought, “I think it’s time to call it quits.”

Time to go

On his accomplishments and retirement with all his abilities, Fury added, “I’ve been on the road for thirteen years as a professional.

“I traveled all over the world and fought the best fighters in the world. Americans, Africans, Germans, I fought them all and they all fell. They all fall on fat [man] from the north of England.

“There are seven billion people in the world. Just think about this number – seven billion people. I heavyweight world champion, number one.

“Of all these people, the biggest, the fattest, the baldest, the ugliest [man] on the planet, it’s me.”
