Tyson Fury remains undefeated and to boot handed Deontay Wilder his first career loss after a seventh-round stoppage via TKO.
Wilder’s corner threw in the towel after a barrage of punches unleashed by Fury, and the American was backed into a corner receiving some heavy combination shots at fast pace.
Wilder said post-fight that he wished he could ‘have gone out on his shield’, however, claimed not to be making excuses for his performance and heralded the ‘Gypsy King’ the better man on the night.
Wilder has a 30-day rematch clause etched into his contract, but as of writing this article, it's not known whether he will trigger the clause or not.
The ‘Bronze Bomber’ will no doubt need time to recover from his dismantling at the hands of Fury, however, the Brit addressed the media post-fight and suggested that a trilogy fight will be inevitable.

It's very clear that Wilder was in no position to defend himself, and it's even more clear that Fury could smell blood, hence why he was throwing punch after punch after punch.
