The boxing world is still recovering from a dramatic conclusion to the trilogy between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, as Britain’s Gypsy King elevated his status as the greatest heavyweight of this era.
However, in spite of defeat, Gareth A Davies emphasised on William Hill’s The Final Round that Wilder’s ‘stock rose as he showed he has deep reserves’ as he dug Fury into the trenches in their memorable battle.
Davies, who was ringside for the bout, praised the heart, stamina and courage of the power-punching American as he rallied back into the fight before being stopped in the penultimate round.
He added that he would still love to see him fight Dillian Whyte or Anthony Joshua, describing them as ‘brilliant matchups and big fights’.
The first clash between the two ended in a draw, before Fury stopped Wilder in consecutive fights, during an explosive conclusion to their enthralling trilogy.
Heading into the trilogy, both held undefeated records, prior to Fury handing Wilder his first two defeats.
