Wilder made up for lack of skill with unbelievable grit. Often, that is enough in combat sport. Unfortunately for him, Fury showed some grit as well.Wilder may well have beaten any other heavyweight yesterday, especially early on he looked great. Then Fury got warmed up and turned it on.
Wilder has copped a PR beating over his reaction to the loss. In saying that, I find it hard to knock a man who was as determined as he was. I hope at some point in the future, the two fighters come together in respect. I get the feeling they will one day. I have respect for both men.
