The Briton once again reigned supreme in the much-anticipated third match, showing true truth to give the American just his second career defeat after a wild right-hand floor wilder to end the match in the 11th round.
But during the match, commentators and viewers began to question Wilder’s approach and body language.
Wilder was visibly gassed in the second half of the match after being flattened several times by the ‘gypsy king’.
And fans noted that Wilder was not as liberal with his trademark in his right hand as Fury continued to exercise his dominance.
Commentators suspect Wilder may have injured his right hand in an exchange with Fury.
And after the match, Wilder’s coach Malik Scott seemed to confirm the injury.
“We saw the doctor afterwards, everything was fat. He has a broken lip, he broke his hand, broke his finger or knuckle, “Scott told ESNews.
“But life goes on.”
Fans were also quick to point out that Wilder seemed to have injured his hand in the match and won their respect for the brutal match.
Scott ended up showering Fury and Wilder with praise after the epic battle of all time.
“I have always said [Fury’s] not good, he is very good and damn near great. After tonight I will consider him a great fighter. Great respect… [Wilder] was amazing, Fury was bigger. The best man won, ”he added.
“We almost beat him. This was a hell of an experience … I want Deontay to have a good rest after this. I want to make sure he gets it. ”

After the game, Fury walked over to Wilder’s corner to pay him respect with a man he has shared the ring with in a total of 30 rounds, across three matches.
The exchange, however, seemed to get ugly as a defeated and wounded Wilder remained on his stool and did not appear to recognize Fury.
When asked about the exchange, Fury was blunt.
“I’m not going to apologize, Wilder is a top fighter,” Fury said.
“He gave me a real run for my money tonight and I always said I’m the best in the world and he’s the second best.
“He has no love for me, Deontay Wilder, because you know why, because I beat him three times.
“I’m an athlete. I went to him to show a little love and respect and he would not give it back. That’s his problem.”
