Tyson Fury defeated American Deontay Wilder by technical knockout

Englishman Tyson Fury and American Deontay Wilder returned boxing to the cave age. There was no technique, style or strategy in the early hours of Sunday on the ring of T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. There was only power, terrifying blows, endurance, give and take at its most extreme. It was an epic fight. Fury fell twice in the 4th round. Wilder went to the canvas in 3rd, 10th and finally 11th, when he received two ferocious rights from the English champion that ended up extinguishing what little of him was left standing. Fury won by technical knockout, retained the heavyweight title of the World Boxing Council and with his two knockout victories he closed a historical trilogy. Only Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, with their three terrible confrontations between 1971 and 1975 could overcome the drama, the agony and the ecstasy That provoked the English and the American the three times they faced each other (2018, 2020 and 2021) for the all-weight championship.

Triumph of the King of Gypsies (such is Fury’s nickname) It also ratified the dominance that Europe has been holding in the highest category from the days when Ukrainian brothers Vitaly and Wladimir Klitschko captured the four most important titles. Another Ukrainian, Oleksandr Usyk is the triple champion of the Association, the Organization and the International Federation after having defeated the Englishman Anthony Joshua two weeks ago in London. And English knockout Joe Joyce is cut as the main threat to the two champions from his chilling record: 13 consecutive wins, 12 before limit. Usyk and Fury will not yet unify their championships: the Ukrainian will give Joshua a rematch and only after will it be seen if it is business to concentrate all the crowns in the same head.

But in addition to being world champion and undefeated with a record of 31 wins (22 on the fast track) and a draw, Fury (125,600 kg) is, without a doubt, the greatest showman in boxing today. Runaway, great seller of his own character and perfect connoisseur of the rules of the game he is playing, after having wiped out Wilder (107,900) and after the rigorous journalistic statements about the ring, asked for the microphone and dedicated a song to the thousands of English fans who came to the capital of the state of Nevada to encourage him and, incidentally, consume hectoliters of beer. While all this was happening, Wilder staggered down the ring, knowing that he had found in the fierceness of the King of the Gypsies, the fit of his shoe. And that perhaps his boxing career had come to an end.

After falling in the 3rd round, Wilder nearly took the glory ahead in the 4th when he knocked down Fury twice. But the tremendous power of his right fist was not enough: the Englishman asserted his 18 extra kilos, threw the weight of his body on him in each tie and that weakened his legs and exhausted him prematurely. By the start of the 6th round, the two of them had emptied. Only the heart held them. But Fury affirmed his hands better in some crosses and beyond his evident exhaustion, he showed greater presence at the time of the definition. That’s why he won. The King of the Gypsies is still the King of the Heavy because in a cave fight that triggered one emotion after another, he was able to impose his law, the oldest in boxing, the law of the strongest.
