Wilder retains WBC heavyweight belt after battling to draw against Fury

  • WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder

"This Wilder-Fury judging takes me back to my first fight with Evander Holyfield", he said on Twitter.

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

Fury did his best to try to goad Wilder, shouting and gesticulating at his American opponent, who donned a mask and refused to react to the challenger's antics. "So I am happy either or, I'm happy to fight Joshua or rematch Fury".

Wilder landed just 71 of 430 punches thrown, or 17 per cent.

However, in the final round Deontay Wilder was able to floor Tyson Fury with a massive punch. For his part, Fury wasn't initiating much offense either but was still winning rounds with his long jab and occasional right hand.

Fury raised his hands at the end of the 11th, though his celebrations appeared premature when he was dropped again, a right hand doing the damage before a left hook caught him flush while already on the way down.

Saturday night in Los Angeles, one of the biggest heavyweight showdowns in recent memory will take place.

Actually, I'm talking about what should be one of the most exciting boxing matches of the year: Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder! Although not badly hurt, the knockdown changed the complexion of the fight, prompting both fighters to become more aggressive over the remaining rounds.

Meanwhile Fury's 256.5 pounds is the lightest he has weighed since his famous defeat of Wladimir Klitschko three years ago, though he has only had two fights against Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta this year since that stunning victory.

Fury, at this point interjected: "Old Trafford, come on Frank!"

Lying helpless on the canvas, Fury looked concussed but, remarkably, Fury rose to beat the count and convinced referee Jack Reiss to let him continue.
