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.

Many martial artists have been following the incident, investigation, and the ongoing ugly litigation of the tragic Rust movie set shooting that resulted in one death and one injury by the hand of actor Alec Baldwin on at 1:51 p.m. on October 22, 2021. The reason for paying close attention to this incident is that many martial arts schools around the world include firearms training in their curriculum, something I recommended to Black Belt Magazine readers going back to 1999, at various levels: non-firing replicas (such as rubber, plastic, or wooden training guns for take-aways), paintball guns and airsoft guns for realistic scenarios, and real firearms on a live-fire gun range for self-defense. However, along with the use of any firearm for self-defense training, be non-firing ones or the real thing, comes specific safety protocols that must be followed, or else you can end up being the next "Rust story."
