On October 9, 2021, Wilder and Fury walked out in front of over 15,000 attendees at the T-Mobile Arena. The match did not disappoint the fans, and many considered the fight a fantastic show of each boxer’s abilities. During the first round, there were no significant blows as both sides landed small jabs as they read and adapted to each other. However, Fury was able to hit Wilder with a solid right hand. In the second round, Fury manages to land a few hits and hits him with a grazing blow with his left arm, which makes Wilder slightly unbalanced. The third round provided an exciting burst of action. Wilder takes a hard jab to the face while landing one of his own. Fury manages to eat the blows well and lands an incredible left hook which knocks Wilder down. In round 4, Deontay Wilder seems extremely worn out. Fury tries to create a combination, but Wilder manages to graze Fury with a hard right hand, and Fury gets knocked down. Another left by Fury gets him a second knockdown. 

Starting in rounds 8, Wilder seems exhausted and does not seem stable enough to fight. During the beginning of round nine, Wilder seemed to have difficulty standing up, which led to a checkup by the team doctor. Throughout rounds eight through eleven, Fury landed combination after combination, which was devastating for Wilder as many fans questioned how he could stand up. In round ten, however, Fury slams a right hook to Wilder, which knocks him down. Finally, Fury decided to end the fight around eleven, sending Wilder to the promised land with a final right hook. 

The fight was amazing to watch, though it felt Wilder was too tired to put up a good fight. Instead of creating good combinations that would wear Fury down, Wilder seemed to look for heavy shots to end the fight. However, both fighters put up an amazing fight and look forward to their next fights.
