Keep an eye on what’s going on. During a tense bout with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury nearly snaps his ANKLE in a scary injury, making viewers squirm.
TYSON FURY stated that he nearly shattered his ankle the first time he floored Deontay Wilder.
Fury got the first knockdown in round three of an incredible trilogy match that includes FIVE knockdowns.
But things almost went wrong when he went forward with it and his ankle almost gave way.
When Fury landed a two-punch combination, Wilder was backed up against the ropes.
And, as the American was falling backwards, he came up with an uppercut, knocking Wilder out before the follow-up left hook could land.
However, Fury later explained that it nearly resulted in a catastrophic injury, which he said was still bothering him after his 11-round thriller.
He said to iFL TV: “I nearly fractured my ankle when I felled him with a bang in the first [third]round with an uppercut.
“I twisted my ankle, and my ankle hurts.”

After knocking Wilder to the canvas, Fury, 33, appeared to have the bout practically won.
However, calamity came in the following round when he was TWICE knocked out, but somehow returned to continue fighting.
Fury took control later in the tenth and put Wilder down for the second time, signaling the end of the match.
A brutal right hand closed the show and their trilogy series in style in the next round.
Fury remarked: “Today wasn’t the best night of my life. The ring wasn’t totally there two years later.
“But I did enough to win, and I showed heart and b****s like a lion once more.”
