'I am the best fighter in the world' | Fury lands knockout blow on Wilder in Las Vegas epic

Tyson Fury retained his WBC world title after overcoming Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.

The pair produced a classic, with Fury landing a knockout blow in the 11th round to seal victory.

However, he was twice put on the canvas in the fourth round by Wilder.

Fury though regained control and did enough to win for a second time against the American.

Given that it is now 2-1 to Fury, the Englishman says his battle with Wilder is now settled.

“Me and Wilder’s saga is done now, done for good,” Fury said in the aftermath.

“It was definitely a historic trilogy. It swung both ways, both fighters had the opportunity to seize the moment and it was just that I showed the initiative and dug deeper and I wanted it more.

"Because at the end of the day, when it comes down to that sort of fight, it’s who’s willing to push further.”

The champion showed commendable grit to bounce back from hitting the deck twice in the fourth round.

At that point, Wilder appeared on course for victory but Fury gradually took back the initiative.

“He caught me twice in the fourth round, but I was never thinking, ‘Oh, this is over,’” Fury said.

“He shook me, put me down, but that’s boxing, and that’s life as well. It’s not how many times you get knocked down. You’ve got to keep fighting and keep moving forward.”

“It was a great fight, worthy of the best trilogies,”

“I will not make any excuses, Wilder is a top fighter, he gave me a run for my money. I always say I am the best fighter in the world and he is the second best.

"Don’t ever doubt me. When the chips are down I can always deliver.”
