Deontay Wilder gave it everything he had and showed incredible heart. However, Tyson Fury overwhelmed him in the long run. With two knockdowns apiece, Fury finished the show in the 11th round with a clubbing right hand that dropped Wilder in a heap as the referee brought the trilogy bout — and rivalry — to an instant end. The boxing community and well beyond had plenty to say about the instant classic clash on Twitter.
