Tyson Fury beats Deontay Wilder in all-time classic to retain WBC heavyweight title

“I’m the best fighter in the world and he’s the second best,” said Fury after the fight, which contained five knockdowns in total.

The result establishes Fury’s supremacy over his American opponent once and for all after their first fight ended in a split draw and their second in a knockout win for the Briton.

In the build-up to Saturday’s fight, Wilder had accused Fury of underhanded tactics in the second fight. But Fury’s second successive victory leaves little room for doubt over who is the superior fighter.
