Tyson Fury demolishes Wilder in thrilling fight

The saga between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder can be considered to be concluded after the Brit knocked out the American in the 11th round in Las Vegas on Saturday night in an exciting contest.

Both fighters were going at it in a spectacle which delighted boxing fans, but Fury was clearly on top and dominated throughout.

The fight had a total of five falls and Fury's KO blow in the 11th was the icing on the cake of a masterful performance.

The victory means that the 'Gypsy King' retains his WBC world title and remains unbeaten, although Wilder gave him a better fight than he has on previous occasions.

Wilder came out swinging but Fury took control in the sixth and started to ramp up the pressure.

After his defeat, Wilder didn't want anything to do with Fury with the latter accusing him of being a "sore loser" and an "idiot".

"He's got no love for me, Deontay Wilder. You know why? Because I beat him three times," said Fury after the fight.

"I'm a sportsman, I went over to him to show some love and respect, but he didn't wanna give it back. That's his problem.

"To be a top fighting man you've got to show guts and respect and he couldn't do it."

Next up for Fury will be the defence of his title against Dillian Whyte, which could then lead to a potential match-up with the winner of Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk.
