The world of boxing, in general, has been on the downside for quite a few years now. Yet, it seems that if the sport can keep having nights like last night it is going to have a pretty strong chance to make a full comeback to the center of pop culture.

The fight had something for everyone, even non-fight fans to be able to enjoy. That is really what makes these types of events so watchable. A little bit like the half time show in the Super Bowl.

Arriving In The Ring

When you have one guy entering the ring in an all back outfit including a mask that looks like it could have been featured in Game of Thrones you are probably going to want to keep watching even if you are not into boxing.

Then you have Fury entering the ring as a true king being carried on a throne. There is really not much that can be said about this other than they really made sure that the whole event was a spectacle.

Did He Or Did He Not Get Licked?

In one of the most bizarre moments in boxing, Tyson Fury literally licked some of Deontay Wilder's blood off his neck in a clinch during the sixth round of the fight.

As can be seen in the video the two men where caught in a clinch. Before the ref could step in to break the two men up Fury literally stuck his tongue out and actually started liking some of Wylder's blood off.

What Actually Went Down

If the 1st had been a pretty evenly matched contest this second fight was literally a no contest basically. It was all Tyson Fury from start to finish, Fury got on him very early and he landed some punches in the first couple of rounds that Wylder just could not recover from.

If we are really honest about it Wylder was out on his feet since the first knockdown. After that, he actually did a tremendous job to be able to keep fighting for as long as he did. There was just no way back from that though.

What Changed This Time Around?

In their first fight, Deontay Wilder scored a knockdown that seemed to be the end of it for Fury. Yet, the Brit got up and was able to reach a draw. This time around Fury came in much heavier, which really helped him cope with Wylder's punching power.

It was evident from the start that his idea was to use his weight to his advantage. Throwing himself literally onto Wylder to wear him down. At the end of the day, Fury is also a more skilled fighter overall and that was shown in the ring last night!
