Fury batters Wilder in TKO triumph in WBC heavyweight title rematch
Fourteen months after their dramatic split-decision draw, referee Kenny Bayless called a halt when Wilder began bleeding from the ear and mouth.
LAS VEGAS – Tyson Fury dominated Deontay Wilder on the way to a seventh-round technical knockout, seizing the World Boxing Council heavyweight title as he handed the American his first defeat.
Fourteen months after their dramatic split-decision draw, Britain's Fury battered the American champion -- who had blood streaming from his left ear and leaking from his mouth when referee Kenny Bayless called a halt.
Fury had dropped Wilder in the third and fifth rounds and was landing blows at will -- Fury's corner finally throwing in the towel and Bayless stopping it at 1:39 of the round.
