Wilder-Fury Ends in Controversial Draw

Tyson Fury encourages the press room to sing along with him after his draw against Deontay Wilder

Heavyweight boxers Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury finished their match for the WBC heavyweight championship with a split draw decision on Sunday.

Wilder thought he had done enough to win the fight. I think when he's exhausted he's more unsafe because he just flings those punches around and if one of them hit you round the head, you're going to go down and it happened. Fury, after cracking the WBC champion, continued with his ducking and dodging in the second round before Wilder cracked him with a shot on the chin right before the bell. "He can't move like me, he'd have been nailed!"

"I'm just going to enjoy the moment because the last big fight I didn't enjoy the moment", said Fury.

However the powers he showed to get off the canvas, whilst staring at the lights, in the 12th round were absolutely incredible.

Speaking at the post-fight press conference, Deontay Wilder opened up on his 12th-round knockdown of Tyson Fury.

Fury also said he hopes to arrange a rematch.

A brutal combination from the American saw Fury knocked to the floor, head bumping off the canvas in trademark knockout fashion. "Fury was laid out and they hesitated a bit", he added.

Tyson Fury gets whacked Deontay Wilder.

"In Warren opinion, if this fight took place at Wembley Stadium and not the Staples Center, "(Fury) would have won this fight". "Fury's stock went up!" "I had a holy hand upon me tonight and brought me back. I don't know how he got up", the 33-year-old added. "Why not? Let's give the fans what they want to see".

Fury went right back to work in the next two rounds, and a decision appeared to be in reach.

The WBC champion had said all along he only needed to be flawless for two seconds and it would be lights out for Fury.

"I fought back from suicide, from mental anxiety and depression".

The two big men combined to put on a spectacle for both the Staples Center crowd and a global audience watching on in their homes, though the judges did their best to spoil it with their confusing scorecards. "That's what we proved tonight, and I'm ready to do it again".

This truly is one of the most anticipated heavyweight title showdowns we've seen in quite some time, and below is all the information you need to catch the historic fight on Saturday.

Heading into a round nine, Fury was leading 78-74 on Tapper's card and 77-75 on Edwards's, with Rochin having the latter margin in Wilder's favour.

Fury was elusive and creative in the seventh and eighth rounds, and Wilder appeared to be out of answers. Fury used his twitchy movement and near-constant feints to disrupt the rhythm of Wilder, whose trademark looping punches rarely found their mark.
