Tyson Fury tastes Deontay Wilder’s blood in the middle of lopsided TKO win

Tyson Fury delivered on his promise to finish Deontay Wilder in their highly anticipated rematch. But before he earned the stoppage in the 7th round, he had to take a moment to actually taste his opponent’s blood.

After their first fight ended in a split draw, Fury said he would come back with a vengeance, put Wilder away and taste his blood before it was over.

Fury followed through on both accounts.

He ultimately managed two separate knockdowns in the fight as well as a barrage of power punches that caused blood to start flowing from Wilder’s ear.

Before he earned the stoppage, “The Gypsy King” locked up with Wilder in the clinch and actually licked his neck with a wicked smile creeping across his face.

A few minutes later, Wilder’s corner was throwing in the towel after watching the Alabama native absorb too much damage without offering much in the way of resistance.

The end came at 1:39 into the seventh round as Fury remains undefeated while handing Wilder the first loss of his professional career.
