From the grip of addiction, depression and adversity cometh a man who has proven to the whole world that no challenge is life is too big to overcome.
Reigning world champion and the world’s second-best active heavyweight by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board and BoxRec, Tyson Fury became the third heavyweight, after Muhammad Ali and Floyd Patterson, to hold The Ring magazine title twice and the first heavyweight in history to have held the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring magazine titles after defeating his long time boxing foe Deontay Wilder in a WBC heavyweight championship during a decisive seventh-round technical knockout (TKO) on Saturday night.
While basking in the euphoria of his latest triumph, the British Boxer dedicated his victory to God for coming out unstuck.
“Thank you to the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I said, those who bring evil against me will not prosper, I said those who stand in the dark can never come into the light. All praise be to the one and only true God, Jesus Christ.”
Secondly, “I just want to say, big shout-out, Deontay Wilder. You know, he came here tonight, he manned up, he really did show [the] heart of a champion. I hit him with a clean right hand and dropped him, and he got back up and battled on into round seven. He is a warrior, he will be back, he will be a champion again. But I will say: the King has returned to the top of the throne.”
In their first meeting in December 2018, Fury (the “Gypsy King”) and Wilder (the “Bronze Bomber”) fought to a thrilling draw, in which the American knocked Fury down twice, while Fury rose from the canvas just in time during the 12th round to beat the count.
