Tyson Fury scores sensational seventh round stoppage of Deontay Wilder: as it happened

Briton Fury stops previously unbeaten American Wilder in seven rounds to win WBC title

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will square off in one of the biggest heavyweight fights in recent memory at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Tickets for Saturday's WBC heavyweight championship bout have been changing hands for up to $11,000 (Dh40,000), while promoters predict the event could generate more than two million pay-per-view sales in the United States alone.

At the centre of the action are two of heavyweight boxing's most charismatic and skilful protagonists, the hard-hitting "Bronze Bomber" Wilder and Fury, the eccentric, self-styled "Gypsy King" from England.

Both men will be taking unbeaten records into the 12-round contest, with the 34-year-old Wilder looking to add Fury's name to a tally which reads 42-0 with one drawn (against Fury) and 41 knockouts.
