Wilder Retains Heavyweight Crown After Fury Thriller Ends In Draw

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury

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.

Going into the 12th round Fury looked to be on the way winning on points and knew to expect some big shots from Wilder.

"I don't think Wilder wanted to come to London, that's why Tyson (travelled)". He's a natural born fighter. For viewers in the United Kingdom, you can watch the match through BT Sport Box Office streaming app for £19.95.

The card also saw Luis Ortiz score an 11th-round knockout of Travis Kauffman and Joe Joyce get a first-round knockout win over Joe Hanks.

Both fighters are expected to meet again in a rematch, with Fury determined to prove himself as the rightful victor in a second fight.

"I don't know", Fury said. "I've got good fighting spirit". "I'm being a total professional here". For the "Gypsy King" the rest of 2018 will be spent with friends and loved ones.

"I've come away and I'm on away soil but what most disappointed me was the British judge".

"We're both warriors, but with those two drops, I think I won the fight", Wilder said.

"It happened to me and I knew it was going to happen to him. That's what we proved tonight and I'm ready to do it again".

Those at ringside - who included boxing greats Floyd Mayweather, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis and James "Buster" Douglas - and the rest of the world watching on were all astonished at how Fury managed to get up from seemingly looked like total knock out.

He resiliently then retained his title when, despite his exhaustion, a big right sent Fury tumbling and a further left secured so heavy a knockdown his admirable challenge seemed over. "And it brought me back".

Now, Wilder has revealed what was said in that moment between the two. Everyone in boxing saying a bad thing, time and again we see it.

"No wonder AJ didn't want no part of that right hand!" He held on, ducked, bravely punched back and survived.

Tyson Fury covered himself in glory with a draw against WBC champion Deontay Wilder after three years away from top-level competition battling and overcoming depression, and dedicated his performance to other sufferers. They embraced warmly and immediately talked about a rematch in the spring.

He still ended up flat on the canvas in the 12th round, his eyes rolling backward while Wilder celebrated above him.
