When the fourth round started, momentum was on Fury’s side but his overconfidence may have led to his demise. Wilder landed his signature 1-2 combo that stunned Fury, but he managed to get back up but Wilder scored a second knockdown on the very same round but fortunately for Fury, the round ended.
