Reactions to Tyson Fury’s victory over Deontay Wilder in a thrilling boxing match

Tyson Fury can now say he won the competition with Deontay Wilder, and can arguably lay claim to the title of finest heavyweight in the world today, as stated in the subtitle of their fight.

Fury knocked Wilder out in the 11th round to retain the WBC heavyweight belt in one of the best battles the boxing world has seen in 2021 – perhaps one of the best heavyweight fights we’ve seen in the 2000s.

They initially met in December of last year. Since earning the WBC title from Bermane Stiverne in January 2015, Wilder had defended it seven times in a row.

Meanwhile, Fury had won the WBA (Super), IBF, and WBO heavyweight titles from Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, but he lost them all outside the ring — the IBF stripped Fury of his titles after a rematch clause with Klitschko prevented him from fighting Vyacheslav Glazkov, and Fury vacated the other titles after testing positive for cocaine as part of his battle with depression and alcoholism.

In April 2018, Fury defeated Sefer Seferi by TKO, and in August 2018, he defeated Francesco Pianeta by decision.

Wilder landed several powerful blows across 12 rounds in their first fight, but he struggled to follow up as Fury kept his distance and bothered him. Wilder, on the other hand, knocked Fury out in the ninth and 12th rounds, and the bout ended in a split tie.

Following a pair of victories in 2019, the two men rematched in February 2020. This time, Fury dominated Wilder for seven rounds en way to a corner stoppage victory that gave him the WBC heavyweight title.

The best Twitter comments to Tyson Fury’s grueling, power-packed fight with Deontay Wilder.

Wilder began aggressively, attempting to gain an early advantage and establish the fight’s tempo and tone. In the second round, however, Fury was the better and more active fighter, landing a crisp one-two at the conclusion of the first.

Throughout the third round, Wilder attempted to hit the big right hand, but Fury intercepted it and countered with a right hand of his own, knocking Wilder down late in the round. Wilder, on the other hand, was able to re-enter the battle and knock Fury out twice in the fourth round.

Following a quieter fifth round in which both men were bruised and drained, the dirty boxing looked to pick up in the sixth round, with both men falling inside — and both men appearing tired — only to light the other up.

The eighth witnessed more back-and-forth action, although Wilder appeared to take more punishment, almost being thrown into the ropes at one point. In the eighth, Fury landed a few more blows that caused Wilder to sway a little. In the ninth round, Wilder delivered a strong right hand, but he appeared exhausted in comparison to Fury and needed a way back into the fight.

In the tenth round, Fury landed a strong right to the body, knocking Wilder out for the second time in the fight. Fury definitely won the round, but Wilder landed three heavy head smashes before the bell.

In the 11th round, Fury stormed Wilder once more and felled him with a one-two, thus ending the fight.

Take a look at how Twitter responded to Fury’s instant classic victory:
