Fury knocked out Wilder in the seventh round of their second match in February last year, after the first match ended in a controversial split.

The Briton once again reigned supreme in the much-anticipated third fight, putting on a boxing champion class to leave the American just his second defeat of his career in an instant classic.

Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) finished Wilder for the second time in the trilogy, but only after a wild back-and-forth battle with five combined knockdowns.

And Fury was on the receiving end of two knockdowns in the fourth round, which had many wondering if Wilder could pull off a good comeback.

After being the floor itself, Wilder delivered a mark in his right hand that faltered Fury.

Fury tried to regain his feet, but after another blow, the ‘gypsy king’ went down in the mat.

The undefeated heavyweight champion took time to regain his composure before looking at the referee and getting up.

Fury was then beaten down a second time before regaining his position and the bell rang.

However, some boxing fans became angry and accused the referee of a slow count.

This was a similar accusation from the first match, as so many claim that Fury got a slow count to get up in the dying moment of the round.

Commentator and great boxer, Andre Ward said they were extremely slow counting on both of these knockdowns “.

This triggered a stream of accusations Fury got the benefit of the doubt.

Regardless of some pointing to a slow count, Fury left no doubt as to who was the best boxer after winning the third fight.

Wilder (42-2-1) absorbed tremendous punishment and appeared to be physically drained for much of the match, but the veteran champion showed his toughness while still throwing power shots on tired legs.

Fury knocked Wilder down again with a concussion in his right hand midway through the 10th, but Wilder stunned Fury in the final seconds.

Fury finished it eventually on the 11th, sending Wilder’s face first to the canvas with a chopping right hand fired high in the air.
