A bold and complete conquest

The latest from the humbled and battered Deontay Wilder said the American heavyweight boxing sensation would exercise his right to a rematch to deal with reigning WBC heavyweight king Tyson Fury of Britain.
Wilder was also quoted as saying the weight of his gaudy walk-around costume — 40 pounds with helmet and batteries—wore his legs down.
Actually, the instant reaction to Fury’s seventh-round stoppage of the previously unbeaten American knockout terror was befuddlement. Wilder’s camp was frantically picking the pieces of the shattered American supremacy in heavyweight boxing.
Did assistant trainer Mark Breland do right in throwing the towel, with Fury pushing harder for a stoppage and Wilder helpless in the corner?
Wilder’s reply: There definitely will be no Breland in the next contest.
He did not say it, but Wilder was clearly blaming defeat on other factors, except himself.
Meanwhile, the hottest possibility that rose after Sunday’s sensational heavyweight clash in Las Vegas was furthest from another Fury-Wilder rematch.
There are strong bets in the various sports book windows Fury would be taking on countryman Anthony Joshua, owner of all the other heavyweight titles, instead.
Joshua promoter Eddie Hearn has sounded more than sure about the colossal fight.
There’s also a frenzy as they seek for a fitting tag to the Fury comeback and golden redemption.
It’s a Crazy Conquest how somebody, who barely survived the first meeting to salvage a draw and get a rematch, morphed into a full boxer and invaded the world.
For one, the decision to add more than 40 pounds on Fury’s frame created fears it would slow him down and lessen the mobility of the elusive warrior known as Gypsy King.
After The Fury Invasion was completed in Las Vegas, the newest and hottest sensation in world boxing has been declaring he would be boxing the same way indefinitely.
“My next foe will get the same treatment,” Fury declared.
If Wilder gets another crack at Fury, there definitely will be no fancy decoration.
But the bigger problem would be on the heart and stance.
Wilder was back-stepping, in full retreat, after he got slammed with an ear-splitting right to the temple early in the first round.
Wilder was indeed a big puncher, but he readily got unmasked as a champion who can’t box.
Unlike Fury, Wilder, a one-track machine, has no resolution.
