A Wrestling Fan’s Guide To Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury

Fans fuming at split decision as Deontay Wilder retains WBC heavyweight title

Tyson Fury declared that the "world knows the truth" after he was denied the WBC heavyweight title in a draw with Deontay Wilder.

Fury dominated the fight, seemingly winning nearly every single round bar the two where Wilder dumped the challenger to the canvas.

In what was one of the greatest final rounds in boxing history, Fury was sent sprawling to the canvas and looked a beaten man before somehow hauling himself off the canvas to take his feet and finish the fight.

The judges scored the bout 115-111 for Wilder, 114-110 for Fury and 113-113.

The Bronze Bomber Deontay Wilder says he is ready to knock out Tyson Fury in front of his family members. "We're both warriors, but with those two drops I think I won the fight".

Going into the championship rounds, Fury's sharp head movement showed no signs of waning, making the champion miss with wild windmills, although he did connect with a huge body shot, that Fury took in his stride.

Classy combinations drew cheers from his supporters as Wilder failed to rise to the occasion, often missing the target horribly as he tried to land a big punch.

Fury by contrast cleverly picked his moments, finding Wilder with greater accuracy and causing a nasty swelling over the American's left eye. But a huge straight right from Fury gave the champion something to think about, and was perhaps the Englishman's best punch at that point.

"The AJ fight is up to them, they have to stop being cowards, we are moving on from him", Wilder said.

But Fury gradually grew in confidence, regularly taunting Wilder by throwing his arms up in the air or behind his back. With a large contingent of British fans in the audience of 17,698 roaring him on, a victory suddenly seemed within reach.

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.
