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.

WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder and former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury made their grand arrivals Tuesday afternoon at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV, just days before their big pay per view rematch.

Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) came in a red Ferrari, while Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) arrived shortly after in a Rolls-Royce SUV. Each man was bombarded with fans and support ahead of one of the biggest heavyweight fights in years.

FLORES

By Chris Robinson

Former interim title challenger BJ Flores is in Miami this week, as he will be in the corner of popular YouTube star-turned debuting boxer Jake Paul ahead of his grudge match vs. Ali Eson Gib. Paul vs. Gib will take place on DAZN later tonight, as a chief undercard attraction to WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade’s title defense vs. Irishman Luke Keeler.

But I was actually more interested in Flores’ take on the looming rematch between WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. The two giants face off for a second time on February 22 in Las Vegas, with everyone’s memory of their split-draw verdict from December 2018 still lingering.

On Sep. 14, inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV, former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury overcame a nasty cut above his right eye, as well as a spirited effort from contender Otto Wallin, before winning a clear unanimous decision victory.

Fury (29-0-1, 20 KO’s) had dismantled Thomas Schwarz in Las Vegas three months prior in a dominant showcase that saw him score a second round TKO victory. But Wallin (20-1, 13 KO’s) came to fight, and made a go of things vs. possibly the best big man on the planet.

On Saturday night, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV, the man who calls himself the “lineal” heavyweight champion of the world, Tyson Fury, easily dispatched of previously-undefeated Thomas Schwarz in the second round.

Fury (28-0-1, 20 KO’s) was a different class from Schwarz (24-1, 16 KO’s) and he proved this early on by dominating the action and staying elusive. A sharp counter shot from Fury put a bloody Schwarz down in round two and the end was near. Fury unloaded a series of punches moments later and the fight was halted.

At the moment, this is a lot of buzz going on in the heavyweight division. The consensus is that one of three men, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilderr, IBF/WBA/WBO champion Anthony Joshua, or former lineal champion Tyson Fury, is the one who should be wearing the crown as the true king of the division.

It’s an interesting debate, and in addition to those three names, there are several other top challengers, contenders, and former champions still in the mix. We recently swung through City Boxing Club in Las Vegas, NV to get some discussion going on this topic, and we were pleasantly surprised at the many different responses we received.

On Monday afternoon, inside of the BT Sport Headquarters in London, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder came face to face with former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, and there was no shortage of theatrics. The two men meet on Dec. 1 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles in a SHOWTIME pay per view telecast that serves as one of the biggest events of the year.

Amidst the back-and-forth trash talk, the 6’7″ Wilder and the 6’9″ Fury had to be separated by promoter Frank Warren, as Wilder shoved his British foe.

TYSON...

Moments ago at the Madison Square Garden Theater in New York, British heavyweight Tyson Fury improved his record to 21-0 with 15 knockouts after scoring a knockout over a brave but outgunned Steve Cunningham.

Fury got in trouble early, as he was dropped by a ripping right hand from Cunningham in the second round that appeared to daze him. Slowly but surely, the 6’9” Fury would work his way back into the fight and began to use his size to his advantage, smothering Cunningham along the ropes.

The end came in the seventh round, as Fury unloaded a barrage of punches onto Cunningham, who dropped to the floor and didn’t beat the count. The 24-year old Fury eyes a future fight with either Klitschko brother while the 36-year old Cunningham falls to 25-6 with 12 knockouts.
