It was a quiet weekend in Asian MMA but all eyes were on Las Vegas where Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder put on a heavyweight war for the ages.
Fury was on the canvass twice but came back to finish Wilder in the 11th round in front of a packed T-Mobile Arena. Reigning ONE Championship heavyweight king Arjan Bhullar was among those paying his respects:
WARRIORS. WOW. Much respect to both greats????????????????#FuryWilder3

While arenas in Asia are largely empty due to the ongoing Covid-19 epidemic there were over 15,000 fans in attendance at the T-Mobile Arena. They witnessed one of the best heavyweight title fights of the modern era with both men trading knockdowns.
This is the third time that Fury and Wilder have fought. Bhullar will be hoping that, sooner or later, he too will have the opportunity to fight for a heavyweight belt in front of a full house.
