Fury “the Gypsy King” became WBC heavyweight champion once again. With the win, Fury gains the WBC and vacant The Ring heavyweight title, while retaining the lineal heavyweight belt.
As reported by ESPN, The Gypsy King was exceptional in timing his punches and attack. He was quick to swerve and dodge Wilder’s attack and once Wilder started bleeding in round four after being sent to the floor in round 3, it was only a matter of time before Fury closed out the fight.
