just came here to say exactly this
I've measured the count with an atomic clock, 10.000001 seconds it said. Clearly paid off ref.
He still had remained big tickets seller in US.
If he had sit only on WBC belt for US market?
Wilder milked his belt, another example how US boxer for long years is milking his belt today is Garry Russel Jr.
Nothing wrong if boxer's origin is proper.
Soon maybe Crawford will be added to this pool: he was like Usyk, then moved up in weight class and now is talking a lot, milking 1 belt and delivers a little.
Wilder fans, make a well known phrase from the following words :
The count starts when the ref says it starts.
If a fighter dances around instead of getting back to their corner, ref usually won't start counting.
Tbf it wouldn't have been controversial if the ref waved it off when Fury was flat out on his back.
Thankfully the ref used his judgement and the right call was made.
Actually no. Thats how refs mess up, the time the fighter hits the mat is when you start the count.
He got up at 10. Was it really the right call though?
The timekeeper starts the count. Ref takes over after fighter is sent to the neutral corner, after that it's his count.
The referee has already stated it was the best decision of his life to let Fury continue. Fury was up at 9 and completely clear headed, Wilder sycophants can't accept Fury is the better fighter.
Made for an exciting moment and then for the fighter to return to his feet and dominate the rest of the round was incredible!!!!
The ref would of robbed the fans from an exciting ending had he called the fight off at that moment.
The second fight was just as amazing
Yes, he was able to continue and finished the round stronger.
When Wilder wins his third fight with Tyson Fury, fans will remember Fight 1 as a Wilder win. The highlights from that fight are just Wilder dropped Fury several times and super-long counts. No heavyweight champ who scored two knockdowns (and never went down himself) over a title challenger ever lost the decision and his title in that fight. It was a successful title defense by Wilder, whether people here like that ore not.
Wilder will have entered the first fight as the WBC Champ and defending titleholder.
He enterd fight two as the defending champ.
If he finishes the series as the WBC/Ring Champion, he'll be viewed as the winner of the series.
If you're going to lose a fight in a three-fight series, the second fight is the one to lose.
Very much so
Wilder lost the first two fights.
