Fight fans were treated to a marquee heavyweight boxing match over the weekend, as the UK’s Tyson Fury took on dangerous knockout artist Deontay Wilder.

The battle was much-anticipated, after the two giants (Wilder weighed in at 104kg, while Fury was a mammoth 120kg) fought to an exciting draw in December 2018.

This time, Fury’s size and skill was too much for the American, as he overwhelmed Wilder to claim victory via technical knockout in the seventh round.

After entering the ring on a throne and putting on a brutal display of boxing power, the so-called “Gypsy King” then led the crowd in a rousing rendition of American Pie:

To markets, and staying with the boxing analogy local stocks suffered a similar fate to Wilder this morning.

The ASX200 got belted, slumping by 2.1 per cent to 6,988 points in midday trade, which puts it on track for the worst intra-day fall since August last year.

It wasn’t any better at the smaller end of town, as the Small Ords index fell 1.9 per cent to 3,010 points.

The selloff followed an ugly session for US stocks to end the week on Friday night, as markets continue to assess the economic fallout from ongoing contagion fears surrounding the coronavirus.
