Deontay Wilder Has 30 Days To Exercise Clause For Fury Trilogy

Heavyweight Tyson Fury is a world champion again, after dominating Deontay Wilder whose corner has thrown in the towel in the seventh round of their title rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

There is a contractual clause for a trilogy fight - and Wilder has 30 days to exercise that clause - with the contest taking place in June or July.

Two judges had Fury winning every round, while the third gave Wilder one round. Fury had a point deducted for grabbing and pushing in the fifth round.

Fury dropped Wilder in the third round with a right hand which seemed to take the legs out of the champion. He put him down again in the fifth round, this time with a left hand to the body.

The end came at 1:39 into the seventh round when referee Kenny Bayless stopped the fight after Wilder’s corner threw in the towel as he was getting pummelled in a neutral corner.

It was the first loss for Wilder in 44 fights in the 11th defence of the title he won in 2015.

Wilder briefly protested the stoppage, as a pro-Fury crowd at the MGM Grand hotel roared in delight.

Fury had bulked up to 273 pounds for the bout, vowing to change tactics and become the big puncher. He was true to his word, dominating early with a jab that stopped Wilder in his tracks and then landing combinations to the head and body.

The rematch, before a sellout crowd, followed their controversial 2018 draw in Los Angeles. Fury improves his unbeaten record to 31 wins and becomes a champion for the second time after beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.

Fury shouldn't have to fight Wilder again. Hes beaten him twice already. Once by decision and once by knockout

[QUOTE=Detroit29;20411814]The same people who encouraged AJ to take the immediate rematch against Ruiz with no tune ups should be doing the same to Wilder. AJ got beat up in 7 rounds as well and came got his belts back. No…

Even if he actually managed to win this one, hes basically 0-2 anyway. So what are they gonna do, fight a 4th time and if Wilder wins that one they fight a 5th to finally settle it?
