This documentary from BT Sport relives the epic 12th round between Tyson Fury & Deontay Wilder, where Fury recovered from a full knockout to finish the match.
Fury had a break in his career due to a doping ban. In that time he ended up gaining a significant amount of weight. He also told reporters that he was struggling with his mental health and wasn’t sure of his future in boxing. When he said that he was stepping back into the world of boxing, he surprised many. Lots of people thought he would crumble in a professional bout. Almost no one expected him to beat Wilder after their bout was announced in 2018.
He made a stunning return to form, shedding a serious amount of weight in the process. The actual fight was extremely tight and it looked like Fury might win it. But in the 12th round, a heavy punch caused him to fall on to the mat. He later revealed that he had been fully knocked out. Incredibly though, he managed to wake up before the ref could finish counting to 10. He went on to finish the fight. The match was declared a draw and the two will be facing off again to see who will come out on top at the end of the month.
