Tyson Fury put on a memorable performance to down former Heavyweight king Deontay Wilder once and for all last night, stopping The Bronze Bomber in the 11th round of a thrilling encounter.
Fury initially had Wilder down in the fourth round, but the former champion – true to his word – was a man who wanted to be seen as a warrior, and showed the resurgence of one by almost stopping Fury later in the fight.
The first knockdown was scored by Tyson, but was far from the end of the story.
