On Saturday night, February 22, Tyson Fury came through with perhaps his most brilliant performance to date in halting former champion Deontay Wilder in seven rounds.

The fight took place on a joint FOX/ESPN pay per view from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV, and was a rematch of Fury and Wilder’s first fight from December of 2918. In that contest, Wilder dropped Fury twice, as the two men fought to a split-draw.

Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury defeated Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder by seventh-round stoppage on Saturday night in Las Vegas in a big shocker. Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO’s) handled Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KO’s) very convincingly over seven one-sided rounds in a historic FOX/ESPN joint pay per view from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Fury and Wilder had fought to a draw in December of 2018, with Wilder registering two knockdowns, but the rematch was completely different. Fury set the tone of the fight early, took the fight to Wilder, and scored two knockdowns of his own before Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh.

On Thursday night, Feb. 13, from the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV, Reid Boxing will stage its first official event in the city.

Headlining the show is a very intriguing junior middleweight fight between battle-tested Cameron Krael (16-15-3, 4 KO’s) and hard-charging Uzbekistan Ravshan Hudaynazarov (17-3, 13 KO’s). Krael has made his name by fighting anyone put in front of him, win or lose, while Hudaynazarov is looking to get back into the win column following three defeats.
