Here’s another angle of Tyson Fury’s devastating KO punch that took down Wilder. There’s no denying the toughness of Wilder who stood in the face of a seasoned striker like Tyson Fury, ready to engage in a dog fight at every point of the bout. Tyson Fury earned a knockdown against Wilder in the third round, with Wilder doubling down in the punishment in fourth as he secured two knockdowns in the fourth round.
It was the first time that Tyson Fury was knocked down twice in a fight. However, the Gypsy King bounced back strong in the later rounds, dominating the Bronze Bomber to eventually pick up the eleventh round stoppage win.

Tyson Fury could potentially face the winner of Dillian Whyte vs Otto Wallin set to go down later this year. Dillian Whyte currently reigns as the interim WBC heavyweight champion of the world. While Otto Wallin has a fair chance of beating Dillian Whyte, fans expect Whyte to emerge victorious to set up a showdown with Tyson Fury.

The Gypsy King could also look to fight the winner of the Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua rematch. However, it will be a while before the rematch goes down. Additionally, a case can be made that Fury might have to defend his WBC gold against the mandatory challenger. It’s a stacked heavyweight division, and the future only looks bright for boxing.
