Wilder retains boxing heavyweight title after split draw with Fury

Boxer Tyson Fury Draws Comparison To The Undertaker In Knockdown Comeback

Boxer Tyson Fury Draws Comparison To The Undertaker In Knockdown Comeback

That's when both hulking men heard a verdict that didn't satisfy them, but almost guaranteed a rematch of this exciting showdown.

Tyson Fury's trainer Ben Davison branded the decision to score the Briton's heavyweight title fight with Deontay Wilder a draw as "disgraceful".

"One hundred percent we'll do the rematch".

"Fury put in a great performance coming off the two years he had of not training".

Fury's incredible recovery inspired multiple references to The Undertaker, the WWE icon who also dramatically got up from a coffin and after a knockdown.

Wilder (40-0-1) floored Fury (27-0-1) in the ninth and 12th rounds, yet Fury clearly outboxed Wilder for large portions of the remainder of their entertaining showdown.

"Wilder's reputation speaks for himself but he just couldn't time them ( his big punches), he couldn't time them with the power shot and we all saw the frustration as he missed round after round after round trying to hit him with his big right hand". Yet Fury rose, summoning strength at the critical moment of his comeback from a 2 ½-year ring absence amid bouts of drug abuse and depression. I was never going to be knocked down tonight. I showed good heart to get up. "I had a holy hand upon me tonight and brought me back".

Wilder has been the WBO heavyweight champion since January 2015, when he beat Canadian Bermane Stiverne.




Judge Alejandro Rochin turned in an eyebrow-raising scorecard of 115-111 for Wilder, Robert Tapper had it 114-112 for Fury, and Phil Edwards scored it 113-113 - even. FightNights.com concurred with Tapper, giving Fury a 114-112 score. "Only God knows how he got back up", Wilder said about the knockdown. "The respect was mutual".

While both men thought they won, neither was overly upset by the verdict in front of a frenzied Hollywood crowd. "You know the truth, everybody knows I won the fight and if I can come back from where I've come from, then you can do it too".

"And he didn't want it for a reason, because Deontay Wilder is the most fiercest puncher in boxing history, in heavyweight division history".

And the fighters delivered, each in his unique way.

Instead, the main talking point from a thrilling contest was Fury's miraculous recovery after being knocked down by Wilder in the 12th round.

But like o'l Adonis Creed, Fury had no quit in him.

A right hand sent Fury rocking backwards towards the deck and a brutal left hand on the way down appeared to be the coup de grace for the challenger.
