Tyson Fury has beaten Deontay Wilder with an 11th round knockout to retain his WBC heavyweight title.

The boxing bout was held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Wilder was the aggressor early in the bout, using his jab against his bigger opponent.

However, as the bout went on Fury gained in confidence and knocked Wilder down in the third round. Wilder responded in the fourth, sending the Briton to the canvas twice with shots to the head from close range.

Fury continued to dominate as the fight wore on and ended the brutal match with a clean right hand to the side of his head in the penultimate round.

Fury now has won 31 matches and has only lost once.

Fury will likely now look to take on Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk, for a chance to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis 21 years ago.
