The Gypsy King, Tyson Fury has been crowned the heavyweight champion for a second time after stopping Deontay Wilder earlier today in Las Vegas.
Fury arrived into the ring carried on a throne and dominated the contest from start to finish, stopping Wilder via TKO in the seventh round after Wilder’s corner threw in the towel.
The 31-year-old Englishman floored his opponent twice and avoided Wilder’s heavy shots, considered by most pugilists to be the biggest in the sport.
It’s a full cabinet of titles for Fury who adds the WBC title to the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO straps he had previously won.
The two met just over a year ago and in that bout Fury was able to get off the canvas twice to earn a draw and we might see a third fight with the loser of this bout having the option to exercise another rematch.
Fury remains undefeated to move to 30-0-1 while Wilder drops to 42-1-1.
