The highly anticipated fight between the Manchester native in the person of Tyson; and the Alabama native in the person of Deontay Wilder; was one of the most entertaining series fights. Listening and watching closely to the visuals the following life nuggets can be collected.

LIFE LIKE BOXING IS A GAME OF ROUNDS

Many a time in the fight against Tyson, Deontay was always on the front foot. He moved faster, threw more punches but as the game took longer, he started to wear out. Many a time people approach life with the speed mentality. When life refuses to yield results, it wears them down and before long depression and eventual loss to life happens. Fury understands this and perfected his ability to beat the speed of the bronze bomber and effectually had him kissing the canvas at eventual ends.

POWER PUNCHES/ MOMENTARY WIN DO NOT WIN STRONG FIGHTS

Life like boxing is not all about power punches (momentary win). It is more about series of wins combined together. Deontay did not really understand this rule, hence he brags and pounds his chest whenever he knocked down Tyson. The crazy thing he never knew was that Tyson, like life has all the cards and determination to come back at you swiftly. It’s just how the creator wired it. Hence if you want to win it, Single power punches do not wear it away. Rather calculated series of weak and power punches (Small, big, momentary and long wins) are the key to life and boxing. Tyson was knocked down; but Knock downs are allowed because they do not guarantee wins or loses.

Deontay Wilder Eventually Kissing the Canvas yet again

LIFE LIKE BOXING WILL ALWAYS HUMBLE YOU

When Deontay drew the first of the trilogy, he felt he was rubbed because he got Tyson kissing the canvas. The second time, he blamed it on a trainer, bad ring walk clothing and the adulterated boxing gloves of Tyson Fury. He was proud and did not want to concede defeat to a man better than him. However, in the end of the Trilogy, He was knocked out again. Even if Deontay Wilder is not going to be humble, the world knows he was humbled by the Gipsy King.

Humility is not a one-way thing. Even the Gipsy King was humbled by the naked fight given to him for his WBC belt. Hence at the end of the whole fight he was humble to Christ, his Trainer, wife and fans. A classic depiction of humility that boxing brings. And that can be said of life too because if life shows you its punches and you loose; you are humbled. But if you survive the scare and win, you just can’t help but thank God and the good people who made you succeed.
