    DEONTAY WILDER is still ranked No1 heavyweight in the world by the WBC, despite having not won a fight since November 2019. The Bronze Bomber has lost his last two bouts to champion Tyson Fury and has been inactive since October last year. 2Deontay Wilder remains No1 ranked WBC heavyweightCredit: PA But in the WBC's latest rankings he remains top of the tree when it comes to contenders - only behind retired champ Fury - with the Gypsy King yet to vacate his belt. Long-time former champ Wilder's last win came against Luis Ortiz in 2019, in what was his TENTH title defence. Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk are nowhere to be seen in the WBC's rankings. This is because neither have fought under the WBC umbrella, with their upcoming rematch set to be for the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts. No2 ranked is Brit Joe Joyce. The 36-year-old boasts an unbeaten professional record at 14-0, most recently beating Christian Hammer earlier this month.

    UFC commentator Joe Rogan believes Tyson Fury benefited from a 'long count' in his trilogy bout victory over Deontay Wilder. The Gypsy King floored the Bronze Bomber three times during their epic encounter last week with the Brit star knocking out his rival in the 11th round. 3Tyson Fury climbed off the canvas twice to knock Deontay Wilder out in their trilogy boutCredit: Getty 3Joe Rogan believes the Gypsy King benefited from receiving a long count by referee Russell MoraCredit: Getty Fury was himself dropped twice by the Alabama native in the fourth round, with fans believing the referee gave him a slow count after he hit the deck the second time.

    Follow along with FanSided for live round-by-round updates as Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder collide for the third and likely the last time. Saturday, Oct. 9, has arrived, which means Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3 happens 20 months after their second fight. Wilder and Fury fought to a draw in 2018, but Wilder nearly knocked out Fury in round 12. Somehow, Fury beat the count and finished the fight on his feet. The split-draw meant that both boxers remained undefeated, but there was a decisive winner and loser the second time. Fury mauled Wilder in February 2020 to take the WBC heavyweight title from Wilder. After the fight, Wilder threw out several ludicrous excuses before going into seclusion. Months went by, and Fury decided to try and break his contractual rematch with Wilder citing an expired time frame. He made plans to fight Anthony Joshua in a full unification contest, but an arbitrator dashed those hopes by ruling a trilogy matchup with Wilder had to happen next. In that time, Joshua lost his three titles to Oleksandr Usyk, and...

But Hearn insists the addition of Scott won't solve the American's problems, telling DAZN: “A guy doesn’t just grow ability overnight, that’s the difference. "[He looks] exactly the same. You’ve seen clips on Instagram of him hitting pads with Malik Scott. “The movement? Exactly the same. The footwork? Exactly the same. You’re not gonna teach him new tricks.

    DILLIAN WHYTE has taunted ‘p***y’ Deontay Wilder over his overly-dramatic bench press video by casually lifting the same ‘little’ weight. Wilder went crazy after benching 310lbs earlier this week as he prepared for his trilogy fight against Tyson Fury. 4Dillian Whyte branded Deontay Wilder a 'p***y' as he lifted the same weight as the American 4Whyte mocked Wilder's reaction to benching 310lbs by making it look easy Wilder’s coach Malik Scott got his American fighter pumped up ahead of the lift. And after completing the feat, Wilder aimed a verbal tirade at Fury: “I’m a train baby, you say you’re a semi truck. “I’m going to run you over like a freight train. You better get your weight up.” But it's fair to say British ace Whyte was less than impressed. Responding to the video, the world title hopeful said : “Look at this clown with the baby bench press.” And Whyte today released a video showing him casually doing the same lift with the same weight. Whyte fired at Wilder: “These guys are out here screaming doing the little...

    TYSON FURY has been backed to knock out Deontay Wilder in five rounds by his training partner, who warned: 'He's going to beat his f***ing ass bad.' Fury, who drew with Wilder in 2018 but emphatically won the rematch two years later, will renew his rivalry with the American for a trilogy bout on July 24. 6Deontay Wilder suffered his first ever defeat against Tyson FuryCredit: Getty 6Trainer Sugarhill Steward, Tyson Fury and Ahmed Elbiali The Gypsy King has been training in America since April for his return, which he initially thought would be against Anthony Joshua.

"Don't you ever say you're going to tape my daughter." Boxing legend Tyson missed the initial release of the footage of Wilder unleashing his wrath but was nonetheless still blown away by the beatdown.
