Fury took advantage of his aggressive style as well as his 43-pound weight advantage to bully his way to become the new WBC heavyweight champion of the world, handing the previously unbeaten Wilder his first professional loss in startlingly fashion.

One of the key moment of the fight came in the second round when Tyson knocked Wilder down with a right hand over the top of his jab behind the left ear of Wilder.

Wilder struggled to find an equilibrium but was unable to, taking a left hook to the head, with a hook to the body that sent him back down to the canvas.

Wilder again found himself trapped in a corner in the seventh round, after two big body shots, his corner saw it wish to throw in a towel.

“I just wish my corner would’ve let me go out on my shield,” Wilder, who was taken to the hospital for observation and did not appear at the post-fight press conference, said immediately after his loss. “I’m a warrior. That’s what I do.”
