“He is not better than Tyson Fury. Fury proved that over three fights—arguably in each one—and never more comprehensively than he did at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday. Twice on the canvas in round four, Fury steadied himself then ground Wilder to bits, corkscrewing him to the canvas in round eleven. He’d survived Wilder in their first fight, battered him in their second; accomplishing both in their third fight makes a fourth less than a priority. That may be an unpopular opinion now, but the drama over the second half of Saturday’s fight owes much to the question of how Wilder remained upright and his reputation as a puncher. In hindsight, the latter was less of a factor than it seemed, which is why the momentum stopped shifting when Fury got up. As for Wilder’s remarkable toughness, consider this question: How does he use it to win?”
