Conor Mcgregor breaks down Tyson Fury’s win over Deontay Wilder

FORMER UFC champion Conor Mcgregor believes that Tyson Fury’s huge frame was the biggest difference between himself and Deontay Wilder. 

The Bronze Bomber was looking to win the third fight in the trilogy against the Gyspy King, but was unable to stop the brit for the second time in 20 months

Fury had more stamina during the fight and managed to end the contest in the 11th round. Wilder was showing signs of fatigue in the 5th round after initially knocking the brit twice, but Fury regained composure to finish strongly 

The Brit enjoyed a huge weight advantage despite Wilder weighing in heavier than ever and McGregor cited the huge disparity as a major factor in the Gypsy Kings win.

Fury weighed 19st 11lb (277)lbs, whilst Wilder came in at 17st (238)lbs half a stone heavier than he was for his first defeat back in February of last year.

"Great fight that, both warriors, both winners," the Irishman wrote on Twitter. "Hard to not be impressed with Deontay there; against the much larger man and almost got it done. 

"Great fight [but] 40lb in weight difference is A LOT. Fair play both men there, very enjoyable fights they have had together. Respect.

"Their skill levels are unique but very close. A great heavyweight trilogy that was. I love when it gets set for certain and both have an honourable showing.

Fury will now take a break from boxing and will look to see who comes out on top between Olexander Usyk and Anthony Joshua when they face off again in a rematch. 

The Ukrainian quite comfortably beat the brit, so Fury and the rest of the British public will have keen eyes on that bout when it happens.
