In the seventh round of the fight in Las Vegas on sunday morning, Wilder was 34 years old then suffered his first career loss when he was knocked down two times before his defeat on his British opponent, 31.

The fight ended with an eardrum burst when blood came out of the left ear and mouth of Wilder.

Following the loss, Tyson Fury was crowned WBC heavyweight champion but Wilder missed his post-fight press conference as he was rushed to a nearby hospital for a further check-up after being seen getting his ear stitched in his dressing room.
