Tyson Fury beats Deontay Wilder to become WBC heavyweight world champion

Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury is the WBC heavyweight champion of the world after completely dominating Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.

It was one of the most anticipated heavyweight fights of a generation as Fury looked for justice after he felt he was robbed of victory in their original fight in December 2018.

Tyson Fury entered the ring first. Naturally, the Gypsy King arrived sitting on a throne.

Meanwhile, Deontay Wilder came out in his traditional mask.

Fury attacked from the bell but the third round was pivotal.

The Irishman knocked down Wilder, who looked shaky throughout the round. It was the start of the end for The Bronze Bomber.

He never really recovered and was on the canvas once again in round five as Fury started to taste victory.

Quite literally.

Two rounds later with a technical knockout as Wilder's team throw in the towel and the referee stopped it.

What a performance from Fury!

After his victory, Fury paid tribute to his opponent, saying: "All praise to Jesus Christ. I want to pay credit to Deontay Wilder. I hit him with a right and he got back, he is a warrior and he will be back and he will be a champion again."

Meanwhile, Wilder was gracious in defeat. 

"My corner threw in the towel but I was ready to go out on my shield," he said. "There is no excuses. I am a warrior and I wanted to go back out on my shield. I will come back even stronger the next time around. This is what big time boxing is, the best must fight the best."

Who is next for Fury? Anthony Joshua?
