After wilding Wilder to the canvas in the third round, Fury found himself on the floor twice in the fourth.

In a brutal, roller coaster battle in front of 15,820 fans, the 33-year-old Briton regrouped and placed Wilder in 10th place and gave two huge right-handers to win with a knockout.


“Shots like these kill careers,” Fury told reporters. “I hope he’s okay. Because he took a lot of punishment tonight.

“Never doubt me,” said Fury. “I’ll always deliver when the chips are low. I give him glory for the win. He’s a tough guy – he took some big shots tonight.

Fury and Wilder shared a controversial draw in Los Angeles in 2018, before the Briton achieved a seventh-round knockout in a second fight 20 months earlier.

“We fought there like two warriors,” said Fury of Saturday’s battle. “And I went to shake his hand and said well done and he was like ‘No, I don’t respect you.

“I was like ‘How can you say I cheated when you know in your heart, you’ve been beaten fair and square?’

“Is he a serious loser or what?

“But I’ve acted like a gentleman throughout my career and that’s all I can do.”
