Tyson Fury got up from two fourth-round knockdowns and stopped Deontay Wilder in the 11th round Saturday night, retaining his WBC title in a thrilling conclusion to a superlative heavyweight trilogy.

Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) finished Wilder for the second straight time in their three bouts, but only after a wild back-and-forth evening featuring five combined knockdowns.

"It was a great fight," Fury said. "It was worthy of any trilogy in the history of the sport. He's a top fighter, and he gave me a real (test) tonight."

Wilder was knocked down in the third round and appeared to be on his way out, but he improbably rallied to knock down Fury twice in the final minutes of the fourth.

Wilder (42-2-1) absorbed enormous punishment and appeared to be physically drained for much of the bout, but the veteran champion showed his toughness while still throwing power shots on weary legs.

Fury knocked down Wilder again with a concussive right hand midway through the 10th, but Wilder stunned Fury in the final seconds of the round.

Fury finally finished it in the 11th, sending Wilder face-first to the canvas with a chopping right hand fired from high in the air. Fury climbed onto the ropes in weary celebration before a frenzied crowd of 15,820 at T-Mobile Arena on the south end of the Las Vegas Strip.

"Don't ever doubt me when the chips are down," Fury said. "I can always deliver."

Fury then broke into a rendition of "Walking in Memphis," in keeping with his post-fight tradition of serenading his crowds.

Tyson Fury’s reaction

06:16 , Michael Jones

I have proved time and again that I can never be written off. I didn’t have my best performance but I pulled it out of the bag when it needed to be done.

“He did keep getting up but it was that final right hand to the side of the head that finished him.

“I wasn’t hurt. You get hit, you wake up on the floor. I got up and was very conscious the whole time. I was one punch away from knocking him out in the whole fight.

“I went over and said well done and he said he didn’t want to show any sportsmanship or respect. Very surprised by that. He’s an idiot.

“I pray for him. I am thankful that we all get out of the right in one piece and get to go to our families.”

“I was down a couple of times, I was hurt. Wilder is a strong puncher and he’s a tough man. I was hitting him with some tough shots.

“It was a great fight tonight, worthy of any trilogy in the history of our sport. I’m not going to make any excuses, Wilder is a tough fighter who gave me a real run for my money tonight. I always said ‘I’m the best in the world and he’s the second best.’”

"I could walk away and never look at boxing again and what I’ve done could never be taken away.

"People would always remember the enigmatic Tyson Fury, the crazy man who fought everybody, the biggest punchers in our generation didn’t faze him, went across the pond, fought [Wladimir] Klitschko in Germany.

Fury vs Wilder 3 live: How much will fighters earn for heavyweight bout?

Saturday 9 October 2021 22:59 , Karl Matchett

Fury and his American foe fought to a controversial split draw in December 2018, with the Briton then beating Wilder via seventh-round stoppage in their rematch in February 2020.

That victory saw Fury, 33, extend his unbeaten record to 19-0 while handing Wilder his first defeat and taking the ‘Bronze Bomber’s WBC belt, which is on the line again at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this weekend.

Per the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the contractually-guaranteed purses for the pair’s second fight were $5million for each man. ESPN reported, however, that Fury and Wilder would both likely receive more than $25m for that bout – and that’s without factoring in pay-per-view points.
