The fight ended with a technical knockout in the seventh round.
The Briton Tyson Fury won the World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight title. In a 12-round bout that took place in Las Vegas, Nevada, Fury defeated American Deontay Wilder by technical knockout in the seventh round.
The first fight between Wilder and Fury, which took place in December 2018, ended in a draw.
Fury became the first boxer to defeat Wilder, and the Briton won the WBC world title for the first time in his career. In November 2015, he defeated Ukrainian Vladimir Klitschko and won the titles of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), the World Boxing Association (WBA) and the World Boxing Organization (WBO). After that, the Briton missed 2.5 years due to health and drug problems. 31-year-old Fury still does not know defeats in the professional ring – 30 wins (21 knockouts) and 1 draw.
The 34-year-old Wilder has held the WBC world title since January 2015, defending it ten times. Wilder’s record now includes 42 wins (41 by knockout), 1 loss and 1 draw.
Briton Anthony Joshua (WBA, IBF and WBO) holds the world heavyweight titles in other prestigious versions.
