October 9th 2021 marks a memorable event in the history of heavyweight boxing. The ‘Trilogy Fight’ between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will be remembered as an incredible contest between mighty adversaries, and a thrilling encounter where both men showed extraordinary courage. The event also marked a new moment in the evolution of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
The first encounter between these two arch-rivals in December 2018 ended in a tie, while the rematch in February 2020 saw Fury deal Wilder a defeat with a seventh-round TKO. On Saturday, in what pundits are calling a ‘modern classic’ and undoubtedly their most compelling match yet, Fury triumphed via an eleventh-round TKO after a back-and-forth war where both men were knocked to the floor several times.
Tyson Fury, dubbed the “Gypsy King,” is the British 277lb 33-year-old WBC heavyweight champion who now has an undefeated record, with 33 wins and 1 draw. The American Deontay Wilder, known as the “Bronze Bomber,” is a 35-year-old 238lb champion with a record of 42 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw – shared with Fury.
The Bronze Bomber’s arch nemesis, the man who tainted his perfect slate, is undeniably almost 40lbs heavier. Nonetheless, the Bronze Bomber met his defeat with incomparable courage. Fury dropped Wilder before being dropped twice himself in the fourth round. Wilder was knocked to the ground four times before succumbing to defeat, astonishing the crowd by getting back on his feet each time. He never gave up, and truly showed undying courage.
The epic fight was not only momentous in the field of boxing but also marked a new era in the fields of cryptocurrency and blockchain. Fury was sponsored by EthereumMax, an altcoin in the cryptocurrency space, while Wilder was sporting trunks bearing the logo of Inflation Hedging Coin (IHC), Mongolia’s leading coin.
The IHC project is notable for its vision of creating a decentralized solution to combating inflation. IHC challenges the Mongolian central bank’s lack of effective action against inflation, rising costs, and the nation’s debt. Currently, the Bank of Mongolia is printing nearly 30 percent of the nation’s total currency market. Essentially, the coin ensures an alternative to the current currency, which has been losing its value against the U.S. dollar continuously. As such, IHC is an ambitious project that not only stands up against centralized financial systems, but also the dominant currency in the world economy. IHC is available on both ApeSwap and PancakeSwap and soon will be available on the global market.
The fight on Saturday saw two cryptocurrencies meeting in the ring alongside the champions, showing that blockchain and cryptocurrencies are becoming widespread and more accessible. Albeit a competitive fight, both sides believe in the benefits of decentralized cryptocurrency solutions to some of the problems inherent in fiat currency systems.
(IHC) extends their deepest appreciation and respect to Deontay Wilder for the opportunity to be part of this historic event.
