Mad respect --no pun intended-- for Tyson Fury. Great fight.

Excerpt from "Video Shows Referee’s Slow Count Saving Tyson Fury in the Deontay Wilder Trilogy:"

SANJIT MISRA on 10/10/2021, 4:51 PM EDT wrote:Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder went head-to-head for the third time on Saturday night. While ‘The Bronze Bomber’ showed a lot of heart in the fight, Tyson Fury proved to the world that he was the better man in this trilogy.

‘The Gypsy King’ knocked out Deontay Wilder in round 11 and retained his WBC heavyweight world title. However, much like the previous two fights, even this fight had its fair share of controversies.



Fans, other fighters, and even Andre Ward on the fight desk pointed out a moment in the fight that could have possibly changed Wilder’s chances. After getting dropped in round 3, the Alabama native made a comeback in round 4 and dropped Fury back as his big right hand connected effectively.

However, it seems that the referee gave Tyson Fury a bit more than 10 seconds to get back up after Wilder dropped him. A video that has now gone viral shows that after the fifth count, the referee decided to take some time off in between before resuming with the sixth count.

Before delivering the sixth count, the ref asked Wilder to step back into his corner and then proceeded with his countdown. Many objected to the delay in the referee’s countdown. ...

There's always a controversy with those two :)
I could be wrong.

It may have been a slow count, but the better boxer won the fight. Wilder had a puncher's chance, but that was it. He was outreached, outweighed, and out-boxed. He wasn't supposed to win. He had even less of a chance because Fury could take his punch, get knocked down, and still get back up. That ability, his skills, and his mouth got into Wilder's head.

No boxer you'll speak to will say that Wilder has better skills than Fury. If you simply compare head and foot movement, Fury's better. Yet, he's also clever. He knows when and how to use his height and weight. He has a superior --or should I say effective --jab/lead. But he also uses body punches.

He probably is the most complete heavyweight around today, and certainly deserves the title. Still, Wilder fought a warrior's fight, and you can't take anything away from his heart.

I watched the highlights... even with the knockdowns Fury did not seem to be in danger too much

Thanks Marvin I am watching it now and in round 2. Funny that Wilder who has knockout power in his right hand always looks like he's afraid to get hit. Defenses are not the best for him. Also Fury had already begun clubbing Wilder's left ear in round 2... Wilder eventually gets knocked out with a punch there later on

Yes, Wilder seems easy to hit. He doesn't defend or get off line very well.

I am watching the post breakdown now:

Good match but comparisons to Ali-Frazier are a bit excessive.

Well, several former heavyweight champs have made the comparison. For me, it's not just that fight. It's the fact both were great heavyweight championship fights that were the definitive end of trilogies. There've been many great single fights, and lots of trilogies. But, imo, it's safe to say this was the best for this generation so far.
