Wilder and Fury draw in bout that Englishman clearly dominated

Share

Wilder, the undefeated WBC champion retained his title after squaring off against undefeated challenger and former WBA, WBO, IBO, and unofficial lineal champion Fury, in front of nearly 18,000 people at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Fury had every reason to be unhappy at the judges' verdict.

According to the Mirror, he said: "I'm going to give it to the poor and I'm going to build homes for the homeless".

Asked about the knockdowns, Fury added: "I was never going to be knocked out tonight". And I come in here - I said to Deontay, 'I'm sorry for what's happened to you.' Deontay's got the text and I'm sure he'll tell you the same.

"I see it in boxing, they get up after a few seconds and the legs are gone".

Lennox Lewis, the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, was among those who pointed out in the aftermath how tough it is for a British fighter to be given a decision on American soil.

The 30-year-old Briton, who had boxed skillfully to frustrate and outpoint the aggressive but inaccurate Wilder, looked to have finally been beaten when the American champion uncorked a savage right-left combination that sent him sprawling to the floor.

"I'm not gonna sit here and complain all night, I thought I won the fight", he added. 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. That's when both hulking men heard a verdict that didn't satisfy them, but almost guaranteed a rematch of this exciting showdown.

Judge Robert Tapper saw the fight in Fury's favour, giving the Brit a 114-110 score, while Alejandro Rochin was clearly more impressed by the defending champion as he gave Wilder a 115-111 total. "We're both warriors but with those two drops I think I won the fight", he said in the ring after the fight. "Fury's stock went up!" "I started overthrowing the right hand, and I just couldn't adjust".

Until Wilder's sensational final round knockdown, Fury appeared to be heading for what would have been a remarkable upset. But 115-111 for Wilder is bad, just awful!

Having shed 10 stone in preparation for the fight and shaken suicidal thoughts, the "Gypsy King" is now intent on helping others overcome their battles.

But early in the ninth, Fury went down when he absorbed a shot to the top of the head from Wilder.

"It's an iconic comeback". But Fury went down again - and almost everybody thought it was for good.

The Staples Center card also featured Jarrett Hurd retaining the IBF/WBA Super Welterweight Titles with a fourth-round knockout of Jason Welborn.
