Wilder vs Fury 2: Pros react to Tyson Fury’s dominant win over Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury put on a tremendous performance, and the pros had a lot to say about it.

Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO) now has to be considered the clear No. 1 heavyweight in the world, even considering he’s certainly not the undisputed champion, what with Anthony Joshua holding three of the four major sanctioning body titles.

It was a truly dominant performance for Fury, who at 31 should have years left of his prime if he sticks around in the sport.

Twitter, of course, was highly active for the fight, and here’s what some of the pros had to say when all was said and done:
