Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James issued his take on Saturday's heavyweight boxing match between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, who fell via seventh-round TKO in Las Vegas.
Wilder's corner threw in the towel on the fighter's behalf as Fury unleashed punches on the previously undefeated champion, and James believes the Tuscaloosa, Alabama, native's corner did the right thing:
Wilder thought otherwise in a post-match interview, acknowledging that Fury was the better fighter but noting he preferred to go out on his own terms:
Fury improved to 30-0-1 in his professional career, and Wilder fell to 42-1-1. The two fought to a split draw in Dec. 2018.
