Heavyweight Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury entered the arena in dramatic fashion for his anticipated boxing rematch with Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder. The two men met inside the boxing ring for the second time to settle the score as the first fight ended in a draw.
Fury was carried out to the song “Crazy” by Patsy Cline while wearing a crown and red robe as he sat on a throne. The throne was carried by women in Antiquity clothing.
Here is a video of his walkout via PBC on FOX’s YouTube channel:

Tyson Fury Won the Match Against Deontay Wilder in Dominant Fashion
The Lineal Heavyweight Champion, Tyson Fury, only needed seven rounds to get his hand raised over Deontay Wilder. Fury dominated most of the fight, knocking down Wilder multiple times. The Gypsy King scored a knockdown in the second round, and he also knocked the Bronze Bomber down in the fifth round with a powerful body shot.
By the seventh round, Wilder was noticeably gassed and injured, and after getting hit with a few more, his corner threw in the towel. Fury won the fight by TKO and earned Wilder’s WBC heavyweight championship. He also won the vacant “The Ring” heavyweight title and retained his lineal heavyweight title.
With his impressive win over The Bronze Bomber, the Gypsy King improved his overall boxing record to 30-0-1. Wilder has received his first ever professional boxing loss, with his record falling to 42-2-1.
Deontay Wilder Wishes His Corner Didn’t Throw in the Towel
Like many combat sports athletes, The Bronze Bomber did not want his corner to throw in the towel. After the bout was called off, Wilder said, “I just wish that my corner would’ve let me go out on my shield. I’m a warrior. That’s what I do.”
The Bronze Bomber was visibly hurt, including blood pouring out of his ear, and he also appeared fatigued. But many will debate what would have happened if his corner hadn’t thrown in the towel.
In their first match back in December of 2018, Wilder scored a devastating knockdown of Fury late in the fight. Going into the rematch with the Gypsy King, many analysts believed that The Bronze Bomber would be able to catch him again within the 12-round bout.
