In arguably the biggest boxing heavyweight trilogy of all time, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury went to war at the T-Mobile Arena.
Both Wilder and Fury had their moments early in the fight and kept the fans on the edges of their seats. In round 3, Tyson Fury secured the first knockdown of the fight. However, Deontay Wilder made a shocking comeback in the fourth round and almost won the fight with two knockdowns.
in the end, Tyson Fury secured a knockout in the 11th round and successfully defended his WBC heavyweight title.
Deontay Wilder showed incredible heart and survived 11 rounds despite a lot of punishment. He even came close to winning the trilogy.
Though the fans appreciated Wilder for his heart they were concerned as he took severe damage in the trilogy. And it seems Wilder has sustained multiple injuries thanks to the grueling 11 rounds against the Gypsy King.
Injury Update on Deontay Wilder following the loss to Tyson Fury
Following the fight, Wilder’s coach, Malik Scott gave an injury update on Deontay Wilder and stated:
“He’s good, I took him up into his room. We saw the doctor afterward, everything was cool. He’s got a busted lip, he broke his hand, broke his finger or knuckle. But life goes on.”
Though Wilder lost again to Tyson Fury he still has a lot left in his gas tank. It’s needless to say that Wilder is still a big threat to top heavyweights such as Anthony Joshua, Oleksander Usyk, and Andy Ruiz Jr. But, for now, coach Scott wants Wilder to heal up and take a well-deserved rest.
Talking about Wilder’s future following the trilogy his coach stated:
“I really don’t want Deontay talking about boxing for quite some time. I want him to get some good rest, especially after this. Cause after the last fight he was so worked up, over time, he really never got to rest. He deserves a good rest. We’ll make sure he gets it.”
Anthony Joshua will fight Oleksander Usyk next in a title rematch. The fight is likely to happen next year in the Spring. On the other hand, Tyson Fury is likely to fight the winner of Dillian Whyte and Otto Wallin next. So there are a lot of exciting matchups for Deontay Wilder when he decides to get back into the boxing ring.
