Tyson Fury has defeated Deontay Wilder In the seventh round to become the new WBC heavyweight champion of the world.
Fury produced a stunning performance in Las Vegas, dropping Wilder twice before the American’s team threw in the towel in the seventh round.
He hands Wilder the first loss of his professional career and ends his five-year reign as champion, sealing his own return to the summit of boxing.
By the sixth, Wilder was bleeding from his left ear, his legs were completely gone and he appeared unable to defend himself as Fury picked him apart. When referee Kenny Bayless waved it off at the 1:56 mark of the seventh after Wilder’s corner threw in the towel, it set off scenes of pandemonium among the sold-out crowd of 15,816 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
