‘Nail me to the canvas’ – Tyson Fury told rivals how to beat him after surviving two knockdowns to KO Deontay Wilder in trilogy fight

Tyson Fury believes there’s only one way to beat him and he revealed it to the world after picking up one of his most famous wins.

After enduring a controversial draw in his first fight with Deontay Wilder before forcing the American’s corner to throw in the towel during a rematch, Fury finally knocked out his rival in 2021.

However, he was forced to come through some scary moments despite seemingly being on his way to another routine win when he dropped Wilder in round three.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ rallied in the following frame and floored Fury with a massive right hand but the Englishman unsurprisingly rose back to his feet and continued fighting.

Fury was decked again by a short punch but the bell sounded to end the round as soon as he popped back up and avoided suffering an upset defeat in the biggest fight of his career.

In the middle rounds, ‘The Gypsy King’ took over as he started landing with more regularity and marked the face of Wilder who appeared visibly fatigued as the fight progressed.

The long-time WBC heavyweight champion was knocked down in round ten by the man who dethroned him before being put to sleep cold when Fury landed a clean right hook thrown from the clinch a round later.

After emerging victoriously from one of the greatest heavyweight fights of all time, an excited Fury shrugged off the two knockdowns he suffered as par of the course.

“I was destined for this. I was born and raised for it. I love a good fight and a good fight it was,” he told BT Sport.

“You get dropped sometimes. That’s it, it’s boxing. You can’t go swimming and not get wet. The most important thing is you keep getting up.”

When his interviewer asked what it will take to end his undefeated, Fury provided a simple blueprint for the boxers hoping to stop his dominant reign.

“Nail him to the canvas with 52-inch nails. Apart from that, I ain’t going to get beat,” he replied without hesitation.

Two years later, Fury boasts an impressive 33-0-1 record and has eased through title defences against fellow Brits Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora.

The 34-year-old is currently looking for his next opponent after failing to make money-spinning fights with Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua in 2023.

Fury recently claimed an announcement about his next move is ‘imminent’ amid rumours a historic undisputed clash with Usyk has been revived and will headline a heavyweight mega-event in Saudi Arabia this December.
