Tyson Fury KO’s Deontay Wilder in the 11th round of an epic heavyweight fight and championship fight (Video).

It was an epic fight to finish a trilogy between two heavyweights. And it was an epic fight that saw a ton of action and five knockdowns.

And one massive knockout.

Tyson Fury was the most aggressive in the fight and threw the most punches. He landed the first knockdown of the fight.

Deontay Wilder did not quit though, and kept at Fury. He would knock him down in the very next round.

Fury went down a second time in the same round. But don’t question the heart of Fury.

In the 10th round, Fury really started to take charge in the fight and knocked Wilder down. Wilder still got up, but he looked absolutely gassed.

And then, with 1:10 in the 11th round, Fury clobbers Wilder with a huge right hand and drops Wilder to the mat for the KO and that was the end of the fight.

Fury retained his WBC Championship at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and improved to 30-0-1. Wilder dropped to 42-2-1.

The two fought to a split decision back in 2018 and then Fury won the second fight back in February of 2020 before Saturday night’s epic third fight.
