The most anticipated trilogy fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder took place at the T-MOBILE Arena yesterday and it involved some intriguing moments with Fury knocking out his opponent in the 11th round to retain his WBC title.

The fight was amazing between the duo after their first bout ended in a controversial draw and the second with Tyson Fury dominating the fight which triggered their third meeting based on court order.

Deontay Wilder suffered yet another defeat of his professional career to the Briton boxer despite been a bit aggressive in the early part of the fight, using his jab to back up the larger Fury while trying to set up his powerful right hand.

The Gypsy King however got back to his stand by getting his whole confidence to smash down the Bronze Bomber with a close range shot in the penultimate round.

This fight was really a great one and worthy of any trilogy in the history of the sport as they both gave each other a real run in the ring before Tyson Fury proved his class as been the best of his era.

The victory for Tyson Fury means he will now look to take on Ukraine's Oleksandr Usyk who holds the other three titles after beating British-born Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium couple of weeks ago for a chance to become the first undisputed heavyweight Champion since Lennox Lewis (21 years ago).

However, the fight will have to wait as Anthony Joshua earlier after his second professional career defeat to the Ukrainian meastro triggered his clause for a rematch to claim his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts like he did two years ago against Andy Ruiz Junior.

The outcome of the rematch next year February will now be a great determinant on who Tyson Fury will probably face to set the 21 years old record which will no doubt go down in the history of the sport.
