SWITZERLAND, FEBRUARY 23 – Britain’s Tyson Fury delivered a dominant performance in his heavyweight championship bout with Deontay Wilder on Sunday morning, overwhelming his opponent to earn a seventh-round TKO victory in Las Vegas.

In the highly anticipated super fight rematch between the two titans titled ‘Unfinished Businesss’, Fury took control late in the first round and never relinquished it, knocking Wilder down twice and bloodying him en route to the referee stopping the fight in the seventh, where Wilder’s corner threw in the towel.

Fury used his reach advantage to continually beat Wilder to the punch. He took total control in the third where he landed a right hand to Wilder’s left ear to drop him to the canvas.

Wilder never regained his legs or footing after that, wobbling through the rest of the match.

Fury again dropped Wilder in the fifth with a body punch and then caught him in the corner with a flurry of punches in the seventh where it ended.

After the fight ended, Fury took the microphone in the ring and tried to get the crowd to sing along to American Pie with him.

“Even the greatest have lost and come back,” Wilder said. “I make no excuses. This is what big-time boxing is all about.”

Fury is now the new WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight champion.

Wilder was bullied and battered from round 1.

Furious Wilder said “Why did you do that?” after his corner threw in the towel.
