Undefeated lineal world heavyweight champ Fury outboxed Wilder from the opening bell at MGM Grand Garden Arena, sending the American to the canvas several times before Wilder's corner spared their man further punishment by throwing in the towel mid-way through the seventh round.

The Gypsy King took a page out of the playbook of another WWE "king", as he was literally carried to the ring on a throne.

Fury knocked Wilder down with a right in the third and a left to the body in the fifth and battered him around the ring for most of the night.

The next possible fight on everyone's radar is a battle between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua. The loss marks the first of Wilder's professional career, making him 42-1-1. It is what it is, but I make no excuses tonight. A matchup between the Brits would shatter records and settle who is the best heavyweight fighter, once and for all.

Fury landed another big left early in the seventh, and two more a minute in. As protected as it was, Fury won a clean and lopsided match, earning favor with the Associated Press with a win in every round.

Fury was giving Wilder hell but the shattered champion was still seeking a Hail Mary punch of his own.

After the fight, Wilder recognised that "the better fighter won" on the day but said he "was ready to go out on [his] shield". "He did what he did. No one wants to see a third fight [between Fury and Wilder]".

Fury has landed a good right, and then another one a few seconds later. But Fury caught Wilder with a left hook and continued his offensive assault to the point where Wilder's corner had to save their fighter.

Fury was also deducted a point by referee Kenny Bayless for hitting during the break.

Fury said "The king has returned", during an interview in the ring before grabbing the microphone to lead the crowd in singing Don McLean's "American Pie".

Clippers to sign Reggie Jackson after buyout from Detroit Pistons

"I'm a warrior. He had a great performance, and we will be back stronger", Wilder said, seemingly indicating he wants to go for a third fight.

"And then you always got to consider also that Deontay is a fearsome puncher", Deas continued, "so that's always a hard thing because he does always have that shot to land a big shot and turn things around". Wilder lands a huge right hand and follows it with a jab to the body.

Most teams will often let the head coach decide whether or not to throw in the towel, but the head coach admitted he doesn't always call the shots in Wilder's team.

Saturday's fight was a rematch of the December 1, 2018, bout between the two in Los Angeles, which ended in a split decision draw.

Among them was an 18-1 bet that the fight will end in a draw, like the first fight between the two heavyweights did 14 months ago in Los Angeles. Both fighters were guaranteed $5 million but could make $40 million apiece. It was the highest grossing live gate in Nevada history for a heavyweight fight.
