Posted by

Deontay Wilder has given his assessment on Tyson Fury’s defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.

The Ukrainian won via split-decision to claim the last belt he needed to become the division’s first undisputed champion since 1999.

The key moment of the fight was when Usyk hurt the British fighter in the ninth round leaving him stumbling around the ring with many thinking that ‘The Gypsy King’ was lucky to be allowed to continue in the clash.

Former WBC heavyweight champion and opponent of Fury, Deontay Wilder believes Usyk was robbed of the knockout.

Speaking to a media scrum he said: “I thought it was a great fight. I was on the fence of things, I didn’t know who was going to win. I always think it’s what dog brings what bite to the fight and Oleksandr’s bite was bigger than his.

I think he [Usyk] got robbed in the ninth round of a knockout for sure, gifts, gifts, were given.”

Wilder himself will be looking to make a statement this weekend when he takes on fellow big-puncher Zhilei Zhang on the Queensberry vs Matchroom card.
