TYSON FURY has pulled another victory against Deontay Wilder out of the bag to remain WBC heavyweight champion of the world.
But the Gypsy King was made to work a lot harder for it than their previous bout, as he survived two knockdowns to deliver an eleventh round KO.

What is the latest update on Deontay Wilder’s condition?
Just as in his second fight with Fury, Deontay Wilder has ended up in hospital following defeat to the Gypsy King.
The Bronze Bomber will undergo tests this morning.
However, the Wilder camp so far say this is simply a precaution.
Following the fight, Wilder said: “I did my best, but it wasn’t good enough tonight. I’m not sure what happened.
“I know that in training he did certain things, and I also knew that he didn’t come in at 277 pounds to be a ballet dancer.
“He came to lean on me, try to rough me up and he succeeded.”
And Fury commented: “Wilder is a tough guy with a big heart to keep going, I think a doctor got in the ring and checked him.
“He took a lot of punishment and that puts miles on the clock – but so did I.”
In their meeting 18 months ago, Wilder was taken to hospital after suffering a suspected burst eardrum.
Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott also revealed after the fight that his fighter had suffered some sort of hand injury during the clash.
“[Wilder] saw the doctor afterwards, he’s fine, he’s got a busted lip, he broke his hand or finger or knuckle or something like that,” Scott told ESNews.
“But other than that, he’s cool, life goes on.”
