One thing I remember about the fight is as soon as the bell for round one rings, Fury is making a beeline for the centre of the ring. Showing Wilder he was there, waiting for him.
It reminds me of what Sugar Ray Leonard said (in Four Kings or possibly his autobiography, can't remember which) about his fight with Marvin Hagler. At the start of each round of his fights, he knew Hagler made it to the centre faster than his opponent to mark his territory. Leonard beat Hagler to it, psychologically trying to break his will.
