‘Wilder has nothing more than a puncher’s chance vs me, I’m gonna school even more than the first fight.’ Tyson Fury.

There was a moment at the end of the sixth round of his lacklustre win over Luis Ortiz when the TV cameras panned to Deontay Wilder as he sat down on his stool. As ever in boxing, the pictures painted a thousand words. The WBC champion was slumped over, elbows on knees, with an expression on his face which suggested he was getting rather frustrated at trying to work out the Cuban’s slippery, southpaw style. 

Evidence that he had had enough of fighting a skills bout came less than three minutes later, when a missile of a right hand landed on the temple of Ortiz and sent him to the canvas, unable to meet the ten count.
