After months of build-up and an aggressive campaign, the fight of the year ended in a very contentious circumstance. Deontay Wilder, the aggressive WBC heavyweight champion of the world came toe to toe with the Gypsy King, Tyson Fury on Sunday, 1st of December 2018.
Wilder popularly called the Bronzebomber(won a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympic games) came into the fight with a record 40:0, with 39ko. His opponent Tyson Fury, came into the match with 27:0, 19ko.
The fight was streamed live in the United States on ShowTime.com, while UK fans watched on BT sports box office, the live streaming cost was $74.99(N26,240). Fans from all over the world tuned in to watch one of the most talked about boxing match in recent time.
The fight had its moment with many expecting Wilder to drop the bomb on Fury early in the fight, but the Bronzebomber had to wait till the 12 round before dropping the bomb. With so much at stake, I’m pretty sure both fighters will be happy with the decision.
But if you are still in shock, here are some reasons why Wilder couldn’t send Fury to Gypsy land.
