Last night Deontay Wilder suffered the 1st loss of his professional career at the hands of Tyson Fury. Deontay’s coach Jay Deas spoke about an injury that might have affected the fight.
Last night’s highly anticipated Heavyweight boxing rematch between ‘The Gypsy King’ and ‘The Bronze Bomber’ did not disappoint. The pair had previously met in the ring in December of 2018. That cold December evening in Los Angeles, Tyson Fury appeared to be in control of the fight until Deontay Wilder knocked him down with an ‘almost deadly’ combination in the 12th round. Like something out of a Hollywood movie, the English boxer was able to get back up from the canvas and finish the fight. The fight ended with a controversial split draw, which set up last night’s rematch.
Tyson Fury came into the fight much heavier that last time and was able to take control of the fight from the get-go. He knocked Wilder down in the 3rd round and then again with a body shot in the 5th round. Finally, after taking a fair amount of punishment from the English boxer, Wilder’s corner decided to throw in the towel and save their fighter from further damage.
Following the end of last night’s Wilder vs. Fury 2 event, Deontay’s coach Jay Deas spoke about the injuries suffered by ‘The Bronze Bomber’ during the fight.
“When asked about Deontay Wilder’s injuries, his trainer Jay Deas says Deontay has a cut in his ear which may have affected his equilibrium.” Helen Yee reported from the post-fight press conference.
After his 1st professional career loss, Deontay Wilder drops his record to 42-1-1 and surrenders his world boxing titles to Tyson Fury.
