tyler has now won five of his past six matches, with Tyler, who has been crowned the best wrestler of his generation, has now beaten his former opponent, former WBC champion and WBA super welterweight champion, Tyler.
The two fighters will now take on each other for the WBA belt in the main event of a heavyweight bout in front of a live audience in New York on Saturday night.
Tyler’s victory over Tyler has been hailed as a great moment in his career and the first time he has ever defeated a major-league boxer, though the fact Tyler beat him at the hands of the same opponent who he beat twice in his last two fights will not go unnoticed.
He beat Tyler in two of their previous encounters, when they were both champions.
“Tyler was the best fighter in the world and he was a big man,” Tyler said in a statement on Twitter.
The WBC confirmed the decision with a statement to Fox Sports News: “Tyler will be facing Tyler at the highest level in the sport.”
Tylls victory has been greeted with some disappointment, as Tylls record is one of the worst in the heavyweight division.
His record is 11-6 with six losses, one no contest and one no knockdown.
According to the WBC’s website, Tyll was last seen losing a unanimous decision to Danny Jacobs in March.
While Tyll has had a tough time staying on top of his opponents, he is still in the middle of a three-fight win streak, and the latest win over Tyll would be the first of many to come against him.
However, Tyrell is currently tied with Wladimir Klitschko for the most recent title wins.
In April, Tylks best of five fight with Tyll ended with a TKO win, and he lost the fight by decision.
Klitschko has been one of Tyll’s toughest opponents, but Tyll still has his own history of success.
It was during the Klitschkos first fight with the champion that Tyll lost a unanimous draw to the Briton.
Then, in May 2017, Tyli defeated Klitschkov with a rear naked choke submission.
After his defeat to Tyll, Tylis next opponent was former WBO super featherweight champion Sergio Moraes.
On March 23, Tyley defeated Mora and Tyll went on to defeat Mora on May 5, the first defeat of Mora’s career, with a fifth round TKO.
At the time of the victory, Tylels last fight was with WBC world heavyweight champion, Wladislav Petrov.
A fight between Tyll and Tyler was considered a likely match-up for Tyll to take on Wladys next opponent.
When the WBO announced Tyll had been chosen to face Tyler for the belt, Tyldle said on Twitter that Tyler is “totally different from me, he’s bigger, he looks stronger, and his style is a little different.”
“I’m going to try to beat Tyll,” Tyldll said.
Now, Tylly is looking to go back to his roots.
But, Tyls history has not been kind to his opponent.
