Tyson Fury KOs Deontay Wilder In Instant Classic, But Wilder Manages To Save His Reputation

In one of the all time great heavyweight championship fights, Britain's Tyson Fury stopped Deontay Wilder in the 11th round of their trilogy fight in Las Vegas. The pair fought to a draw in 2018, then Fury dominated and stopped Wilder in their rematch last year. But Wilder rebounded from that first loss of his career to put on a display of grit Saturday night.

After Fury dropped him in the third round, Wilder came back to put Fury down twice in the fourth. Fury recovered as the pair traded huge shots throughout the middle rounds with Fury getting the better of it. Whether it was from Fury's punches or the 277-pound Brit leaning on him in the clinches, Wilder slowed in the second half of the bout. Then came the 10th round where Fury ducked under a Wilder left hook and countered with a tremendous right that put the American down and seemingly ready to go. But Wilder somehow came back firing hard punches to close out the round. Fury was right back at him in the 11th though, hitting him with a huge uppercut followed by another right hand that dropped Wilder and finally finished the contest.

11 Ultimate Facts About Jean-Claude Van Damme's Bloodsport

Recently a friend, David Abdullah Muhammad aka Brotha Newz, https://youtu.be/o0FNaWDqB1U started posting vintage martial arts movie posters for an upcoming album release and reminiscing about movies that I watched as a young adult. Most of these are not what you would typically think of like Enter the Dragon. Most of them were from the 80's which I consider to be the golden age of the martial arts movie genre. You had movies like A Force of One with Chuck Norris and Bill Wallace, Blood Sport with Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Above the Law with Steven Seagal. These movies had some of the biggest martial arts stars of the time and really pushed an explosion of martial arts related movies into the next decade.
