From a long line of English travelers/gypsies who were bare-knuckle fighters, Fury started boxing at the age of 14 years old and turned professional in 2008. He won his first seven fights before the scheduled finish. In 2009, the 6’9” Fury won the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) English Heavyweight title, adding the Commonwealth (British Empire) Heavyweight title a few years later as his undefeated streak continued to grow to 15 consecutive victories in 2011.

This has all the makings to be a firefight for as long as it lasts. Although Fury’s outward motives were questioned ahead of their 2020 rematch when he boldly announced he was going for the knockout, his prediction proved gospel given his performance, which included a noted lack of resistance from a shellshocked Wilder.
Fury has predicted yet another early stoppage and there’s plenty of reason to believe both that it’s possible and that it remains his best strategy. Although everyone from critics to Fury himself should expect an improved Wilder with nothing to lose as he enters his last shot at redemption, the best way to beat a bully remains standing up to him.

Wilder vs Fury 3 Recap
Held on the 22nd of February that year, Wilder vs Fury 2 was one of the last major events to take place before the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world as we know it, but the fight did not disappoint.
Both Wilder and Fury added nearly 20 pounds to their frames for the rematch, a fight that carried a clause for the loser of the bout to schedule a rematch if they so decided.
Moved from the Los Angeles location of their first fight, the second took place in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in front of a packed house. Wilder came out quick as expected, but it was Fury who soon took over, making Wilder uncomfortable with notable shot after notable shot. The night went in full favor of Fury in the third round when his right hook connected directly with the ear of Wilder, causing bleeding and noticeably affecting the champion’s equilibrium.
Relying on the ropes to help him stay up over the next three rounds, Wilder hung tough. In the seventh round, however, after seeing Wilder get knocked around enough, his corner did what the fighter couldn’t do and tossed in the towel for him, with just over a minute left in the round. Fury was declared the winner by TKO, taking Wilder’s WBC heavyweight belt with him.

When Wilder and Fury first fought in December of 2018, it was the summit of his redemption tour at the time to reclaim the boxing glory he had surrendered in 2016 in order to deal with his drug and alcohol use that cost him his boxing license. What he had left behind were the WBA, WBC, IBO, and IBF world heavyweight belts that he had won in his 2015 fight with Wladimir Klitschko, ending the German’s 10-year run of dominance. What he was after was the World Heavyweight Title that Wilder held.
Wins for Fury over Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta set up the title opportunity against Wilder, who was just coming off of a tenth consecutive successful defense of his belt with a victory over a previously unbeaten Luis Ortiz by TKO.
