Deontay Wilder mocked Tyson Fury as having “pillow fists” before their heavyweight world title rematch in Las Vegas on Saturday but was left to eat those words as Fury floored him twice on his way to a brutal stoppage victory.
Fury relieved Wilder of his WBC title, and with it his unbeaten record, as the 6ft 9in Brit dismantled his rival from the opening bell at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
‘The Gypsy King’ dished out a decidedly one-sided beating which included flooring Wilder in the third and fifth rounds.

Ringside footage showed close-hand just how powerful the combination was, capturing the “thud” as Fury made contact.
