The most highly-anticipated boxing match of the year closed with an amazing finish and an even better comeback story.
Tyson Fury was stripped of his boxing titles in 2016 after a slew of personal struggles affected his life and his weight. However, he has returned in such outstanding shape that his competitive drive should be marveled at.
In 2018, Fury returned to boxing after two years of inactivity to face Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title. That match ended with a draw, although many fans argued that Fury truly won.
The bout between Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) and Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) on Saturday night was the long-awaited championship rematch that fans had been waiting for. Fury did not disappoint, dominating from start to finish.
Fury finally got his recognition with a seventh-round TKO in the rematch. He came into the fight at 273 pounds, 16.5 pounds more than he weighed in at before their initial match on Dec. 1 of 2018.
Wilder entered at a career high 231 pounds and Fury still had a 42-pound advantage.
Fury finally held the title belt once again after years of off time. "The king has returned to the top of the throne," he said directly after the victory.
He surely has.
