Fury, who remains unbeaten in his career has now been crowned the latest WBC heavyweight champion.

Although, Wilder was furious with his camp after throwing-in the towel moments before the referee ended the bout.

The 34-year-old bled from his ears which could have led to serious injury as reported by GiveMeSport.

Joshua recently reclaimed his belts after beating American-Mexican fighter Andy Ruiz in Saudi Arabia last December.

The British born boxer of Nigerian descent lost all belts six months earlier after falling in the seventh round to his challenger in the United States in June 2019.
