How is Wilder still up. He's looked punch drunk for so much of this fight.

Wilder can't be the same after these last two bouts with Fury.

I can't think of a better heavyweight fight. Granted, I'm not nearly as versed in the sport as most of y'all so I'm ready to be corrected.

Mora gave Fury 2 very long counts. I though he let him rest after each knock down

That was a surprise to me. I thought the longer the fight went would give Deonty the edge. He gassed early. Wilder had it twice but Mora gave Tyson 2 very long counts. If he hadn't Wilder would have knocked Tyson out.

Thought Wilder redeemed himself by going out on his shield after being such a sore loser after the first rematch but my man managed to double down and whine some more. Come on dude...you were face down, ass up.

IMO Wilder is still fine after that performance. He arguably beats every heavyweight out there not named Fury...

I think he's far from ever being the same again but of course I'm just guessing. Been a fan of the sport since the 80's and sadly almost all the good to great ones mentally tap out after back to back losses like that.

If this were a video game he'd be the 2nd best moving forward but he'll prolly lose again within 2 fights and move on. It's rare to find a guy like Holyfield or Ali who lost and come back effectively for another run in boxing...MMA on the other hand

There still heavyweights not names Fury that Wilder can beat up on, White, Ruiz, Parker but he prob should avoid Usik or AJ, string couple wins to ‘redeem’ himself and by that time, he’ll be 37-38, retire

Wilder's reported net worth is $40 million. He probably won't retire but he could with good investments enjoy a good life.

A good life? He could waste half of it on booze and hookers, and still live a great life. Maybe not the life he lives now....assuming it is somewhat extravagant.....but still a great life.

Think maybe a longish break could help him.....build up some desire for his return to the ring. I personally still think there is a fight that could take place between him and Fury where he comes out on top.....but take a break, beat some good fighters, then sell it as the "new and improved" Wilder returning to take on Fury (if he is still boxing and holds the belts). He proved he has the ability to hurt Fury, and that is the first requirement in having a chance to beat him.

I hope this isn't the case but after his last two fights with Fury, I think Wilder might be slurring his words in a decade.

It had been a while since I can recall a fight similar to last night.....and while it was off the charts entertaining. it made me a little uncomfortable a few times when it was clear punches by both boxers were doing real damage.

Wilder-Fury III Look at the closeup of Fury's eyes at the beginning of the fight. I wonder if he was drug tested after the fight?
