The Bronze Bomber was dominated by his British rival as he suffered the first defeat of his career, being knocked down twice en route a stoppage defeat in the seventh round.
Victory saw Fury crowned WBC and The Ring champion while retaining his lineal position to further his status as the No 1 of the division.
Despite the two knockdowns and a whole host of domination from Fury, it was a moment of something a bit different that caught the eyes.
After launching an onslaught on his opponent, Fury clinched and seemingly licked blood off the back of Wilder.
The blood poured down from Wilder’s ear after a sweet right hook connected, a punch which has led to Wilder being taken to hospital to be examined.
