Fury knew how to use his weight as well. He was laying on Wilder in clinches, roughing him up on the inside, bullying him with the extra 45 pounds whenever they got mixed up.
Wilder has never been able to competently fight on the inside - and didn't even try to create distance when Fury was rushing him (although he showed he was capable of doing this earlier in his career - but not against a guy as savvy as Fury).
The weight was a big deal - especially with this style of fight.
