    Ethan Miller/Getty Images Boxing fans are celebrating as Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder put on a show for the ages Saturday night in Las Vegas — with the former successfully defending his heavyweight championship in an 11 round thriller. It was a see-saw battle as both men alternately appeared to be on the cusp of victory, and the brink of defeat at multiple points. Fury appeared to have Wilder’s measure in the third round — as Wilder suffered a knockdown and was fortunate to make it to the bell. But then, miraculously, he put Fury on the canvas twice in the fourth round — and it was Fury who was desperate to survive. Fury made it to his corner and largely got the better of the action from that point. But Wilder kept coming and staggered his foe several more times. Ultimately, though, Fury sealed the deal with a knockdown in the 10th, and a brutal TKO in the 11th on a crunching right hand shot. Referee Russell Mora waved off the bout immediately, and Fury won for...

    Heavyweight trilogies are a rarity but last night at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, we were treated to a big boy triptych, this time between the World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champ Tyson Fury aka the “Gypsy King” (31-0-1, 22 knockouts) and Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 knockouts) aka the “Bronze Bomber.” Their first matchup in 2018 ended in a controversial draw. Most observers and boxing scribes grumbled that Fury out-boxed, out-maneuvered, and out-punched his hammer-fisted opponent. Fury was, however, dropped to the canvas in both the 9th and 12th rounds. The second of Fury’s knockdowns has become legendary. In the final frame, Wilder was finally able to tattoo his opponent with a pulverizing right followed by a short explosive left hook. Fury dropped as though he had been shot. The Gypsy King appeared unconscious. Wilder celebrated as if there would be no going to the score cards. Suddenly, at the count of seven, the near seven-foot-tall giant leapt up—as though from the dead—and within a few ticks of the clock, the Irish Traveler named after Mike Tyson was back...
