Deontay Wilder rushed to hospital following bloody defeat to Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder was rushed to hospital following his TKO defeat to Tyson Fury. Wilder skipped the post fight press conference which comes after the in-ring interview to head to hospital.

It is believed he was taken as a precautionary measure following his seventh-round defeat.

Fury had Wilder on the ropes throughout and controlled the contest from start to finish.

The Gypsy King won the WBC heavyweight world championship and Eddie Hearn hinted a fight with Anthony Joshua could be on the cards.

He said: “No need for a third let’s go straight to it in the Summer! #undisputed”

Afterwards Fury said: “A big shout out to Deontay Wilder. He came here tonight and he manned up and he really did show the heart of a champion.

“I hit him with a clean right that dropped him and he got back up. He is a warrior. He will be back. He will be champion again.

“But I will say, the king has returned to the top of the throne!”

Wilder admitted he was beaten by a better man after struggling to deal with Fury’s tempo and front-foot strategy.

He said: “The best man won on the night.

“My coach threw in the towel but I’m ready to go out on my shield.

“I had a lot of things go on coming into this fight but it is what it is.

“I just wish my corner would have let me go out on my shield, I’m a warrior. But he [Fury] did what he did and there’s no excuses.”
