The 3rd and final chapter in the Fury, Wilder saga has come to a close and with another decisive victory from Fury it is safe to say that a new king of the division can officially be declared. With his size, skill and what seemed to be better endurance Fury just presented a package that was frankly too much for Wilder to deal with. All credit goes to Wilder for putting up a valiant effort but in his 3 fights with Fury, Wilder lacked the very 3 things needed to pull out a victory.

When dealing with an adversary such as Fury who stands a few inches taller in height with a longer reach, weighs substantially more, and is naturally more comfortable in the squared circle Wilder needed to focus on 3 areas to give himself the best chance of pulling out a victory. Footwork, Punch Variation and Endurance (the lungs of a marathon runner). These attributes come from undergoing proper physical training ( less weight training and more Calisthenics and lots of running) working on the fundamental skills of the sport (Throwing a proper Jab, Using head movement, proper foot placement when throwing a punch, maintaining balance at all times and last but not least angles of attack). If there was ever a question of how deficient in these areas Wilder is it became more than apparent during his 3 matches with Fury. Wilder lacked the ability to use lateral movement to avoid the bigger and considerably slower Fury due to his poor use of footwork in the ring. Wilder often got caught in clinches giving the much heavier Fury an opportunity to use his substantial weight advantage against. Wilder lacked punch variation which made it easier for Fury to evade the infamous right hand of Wilder.  Last but not least Wilder lacked the cardio conditioning necessary to go 12 hard rounds. Many want to point to the fact that Wilder was on the receiving end of many hard landed shots as to why he looked gassed after the 6th round but it was from a lack of hitting the pavement and running that caused him to fade so early in the fight. Wilder simply lacked the legs needed to carry him to victory. It has always been a rumor that Wilder does not run during his training camps. That lack of conditioning showed in his bouts with Fury. Let's be clear, having a will to push through is not the same as having endurance. The look of exhaustion was written all over Wilder’s face during the second half of his fights with Fury, citing the 2nd and 3rd fights in particular. After the 4th round in his 3rd fight with Fury his body language could not have been more telling. He simply lacked the gas necessary to finish the bout at a pace that would favor him.

In Fury, Wilder met a problem his right hand could not solve. Bottom line, the rightful king of the division was crowned that night. With an 0 loss record and favored to win against all who currently campaign as a heavyweight it is hard to debate who if not Fury should be considered top of the heavyweight division
