KEVIN IOLE: Hey, everybody, Kevin Iole, Yahoo Sports at T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas just moments after Tyson Fury finished Deontay Wilder in the 11th round in an epic heavyweight title fight. The trilogy was awesome. This was by far the best of the three fights.

There were five knockdowns in this fight. Three by Fury, Two by Wilder. At different times in the fight, that looked like either guy could be out of it.

Fury was just too big, too strong, he was punching in combination. Wilder there was only throwing one punch at a time after the early part of the fight. Fury went off as a minus 280 favorite. He covered that.

There's no doubt now that he is the best heavyweight in the world, no question about that. He won the series with Wilder 2-0-1. Could have won that first fight. Would have made him 3-0. He sits on top of the heavyweight division.

Wilder fought valiantly, took a lot of shots, never quit trying, really came back. Fury said in the ring after the fight that Wilder is the second best heavyweight in the world. I can't dispute that. I think he is the second best heavyweight in the world.

Would love to see him in a fight with somebody like Andy Ruiz. But Tyson Fury, the Gypsy King, is now the King of boxing after an 11th round victory over Deontay Wilder at T-Mobile Arena. For Yahoo Sports, I'm Kevin Iole.
