iPhone : 🏥 Deontay Wilder will not be at the post-fight press conference - he is going to hospital to be checked over following his knockout defeat to Tyson Fury.

iPhone : ⏰ Crazy how quickly things change in boxing. Three months ago PBC had all four heavyweight world titles under their control and were eyeing an in-house Deontay Wilder vs Andy Ruiz undisputed fight. Now they have none and THE fight is Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury.

Twitter Web App : 💰 Now official that Tyson Fury's rematch win over Deontay Wilder has broken the live gate record (money generated from ticket sales) for any heavyweight fight in history. Lennox Lewis vs Evander Holyfield II was $16.86m - Wilder vs Fury II is $16.92m with 15,816 in attendance.

iPhone : 🌍👑 List of current heavyweight boxing world champions:

🇬🇧 WBA - Anthony Joshua
🇬🇧 IBF - Anthony Joshua
🇬🇧 WBO - Anthony Joshua

🇬🇧 WBC - Tyson Fury
🇬🇧 Lineal - Tyson Fury
🇬🇧 Ring - Tyson Fury

iPhone : 📝 Regarding what’s next for Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury after this - the trilogy clause in their contract means Wilder now has 30 days to decide if he wants a shot at revenge next. The third bout would be a 60/40 split in Fury’s favour as opposed to the 50/50 split tonight.

Twitter Web App : 🇬🇧👑 Tyson Fury KNOCKS OUT Deontay Wilder in the seventh round. An incredible, unbelievable performance from the Gypsy King who told us all exactly what he was going to do, then went out and executed it to perfection. The new WBC heavyweight champion.

Twitter Web App : 💣 Deontay Wilder makes his entrance in warrior's armour as has now become normal for him. We're moments away…

Twitter Web App : 👑 Tyson Fury emerges dressed as a king, sat on a moving throne making its way to the ring. Only one Tyson Fury.

Twitter Web App : ⭕️ Did not see a Charles Martin one-punch KO coming. After six unentertaining rounds he knocks out Gerald Washington in what was somehow an IBF eliminator.

Twitter Web App : ✅ Another successful defence for Emanuel Navarrete who pummels Jeo Santisima into submission for an eleventh-round stoppage. Hope to see a unification from the WBO super-bantamweight world champion before he inevitably moves up.

iPhone : 😅 Slight contrast between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder backstage…
