This is the best heavyweight fight I have seen in my lifetime. How Fury resurrected after that last round knockdown is anyone’s guess after decimating Wilder with pure boxing for most of the rounds. I think the video below recaptures the spirit of the fight and essence of the aftermath (from a biased Fury perspective) but it isn’t a highlights package by any means.
I remember my old man telling me about seeing Ali and Foreman’s Rumble in the Jungle and Thrilla in Manila live on TV and I have since watched all those fights including the Ali documentary ‘When We Were Kings‘ multiple times. In fact the song from that academy award winning documentary When We Were Kings is in my music library. If you haven’t heard this song put to Ali’s most timeless images then switch off everything you’re doing right now and watch this!
The best middle weight clash I ever saw was recent – Golovkin versus Canelo II. I scored it like the judges – a very slight margin towards Canelo although I’m a big GGG fan. Who would have thought Canelo would come out the aggressor? Both fighters have the strongest chins in the business seemingly made of granite. I hope one day to see number 3.
