Tyson Fury Explains Why Deontay Wilder Knocked Him Down Four Times But Couldn't KO Him in Trilogy Fight!
Tyson Fury, the self-proclaimed “Gypsy King” of boxing, has offered his unique perspective on why Deontay Wilder’s thunderous punches consistently floored him but never extinguished his fighting spirit. The two heavyweight titans battled each other in a captivating trilogy, marked by dramatic knockdowns and thrilling comebacks.
Fury, known for his larger-than-life persona, attributes his resilience to his sheer size and weight. Standing at 6’9″ and tipping the scales at 277lbs, he suggests Wilder’s punches, while devastating to smaller fighters, simply couldn’t deliver the same knockout blow against his bigger frame.
“He hits a guy 6ft 3ins and 225lbs, they’re nailed to the canvas,” Fury remarked, highlighting the contrast between his own physique and that of many other heavyweights. “But a guy 6ft 9ins and 277lbs – I think that has a lot to do with it, size matters.”
Fury’s confidence extends beyond his physical attributes. He boldly proclaims that no fighter, past or present, could best him in a one-on-one battle. “I believe that I could beat any man born from his mother in any era, in any decade, in any century,” he declared.
While such statements are sure to spark debate amongst boxing fans, there’s no denying the mental strength and unwavering belief that have played a crucial role in Fury’s success. His upcoming clash with Oleksandr Usyk on February 17th will be another test of this self-assuredness, as the Ukrainian challenger seeks to dethrone the heavyweight king.
