The bout began with Fury claiming centre ring and pressing forwards early.
Beforehand, the ‘Gypsy King’ had promised more aggressive tactics in the rematch and lived up to his word.
In the second and third rounds, Fury continued to press forward before finding his crucial breakthrough.
Fury smashed home a right to the side of Wilder’s head which sent him clattering down to the canvas.
The American survived the round by the skin of his teeth, but was clearly on unsteady legs.
Come round five Wilder was down again, this time from a body shot. Although he arose, the writing was on the wall.
Entering the second half, Fury’s accuracy with crunching left hooks, jabs and right hands continued to put Wilder through hell.
He backed the ‘Bronze Bomber’ up into a corner, hammered home a straight right and began to unleash combinations, prompting the towel to be thrown in.
Referee Bayless separated the fighters and Fury was king of the world again.
