Tyson Fury Reacts To The Entire 12th Round Against Deontay Wilder
It's the footage we all want to see. Tyson Fury reacted to the 12th round of his fight with Deontay Wilder, just a day after his opponent regained the WBC heavyweight title in Los Angeles.
It was arguably the most exciting round of boxing this year and Fury couldn't stop smiling throughout.
The Gypsy King describes how he had to convince the referee that "he was fine" after Wilder's one-two combination. He later went on to talk about his thunderous right hand after the knockdown, as well as other aspects of the bout in a fascinating reaction video.
"I got a bit too greedy and tried knocking him out in the 12th round," said Fury
"I should have just boxed on me toes round the ring, but I wanted to put on a show, and put the closing end on the American Dream. I tried knocking him out and hit him with a fantastic right hand before he dropped me."
Fury talks about the exact moment Wilder connected with that powerful right and left combo. "There, bang bang!" he said.
"Wilder is celebrating like it's over but The Gypsy King gets up - look how strong the legs are. He (the ref) said 'move to the left, right, go that way'. I said 'I'm fine,' and I was.
"He came rushing forward again and in this round I hit him with the best right hand anyone has ever threw. I was taunting him, hands behind the back. He was as tired as I was but I do get him with a good right hand.

Even the man himself admits it was one of the best heavyweight fights he's seen in a long time, and you've got to agree with him.
"How did I get up from a knockdown like that, to be as crazy as that. He knew he'd lost the fight. He didn't do anything. I was running around, hands up. I knew I won the fight."
I think i might go back and watch the full fight again. It was THAT good.
