In an action-packed thriller, Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder by TKO in the 11th round to retain his WBC heavyweight title Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The fight was stopped at 1 minute, 10 seconds when an exhausted Wilder went down for the third time of the night and the referee waved the fight off without a count. Fury hit the canvas twice himself.
Saturday’s bout marked the third meeting between Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) and Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs). They fought to a split draw in 2018, and in the rematch in February 2020, Fury dominated Wilder for a seventh-round TKO victory.
Fury was a -280 favorite Saturday night, while Wilder was +230, according to Caesars Sportsbook.
