Deontay Wilder retains heavyweight crown after Fury thriller ends in draw

Deontay Wilder retains heavyweight crown after Fury thriller ends in draw

Tyson Fury, following his Saturday night, December 1, boxing match against Deontay Wilder that ended in a draw, has said that he would donate his $10 million fight purse to help the poor and build houses for homeless people.

In 2015, Fury shocked the world when he won the titles of the three most important ranking boxing organisations, the IBF, WBO and WBA by beating long-reigning Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in a unanimous decision. "It can be done", Fury said.

Supporters felt Fury had done enough to win the bout, outboxing the reigning champion despite being knocked to the canvas twice.

Despite his view of the decision he indicated that a rematch could well be in Las Vegas rather a football ground in England by saying: 'I would have no problem coming back here.

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.

The three judges scored the fight 115-111 Wilder, 114-112 Fury, and 113-113.

Despite there being no undisputed victor, both men gave proper respect following the fight, considering themselves the two best heavyweights in the world while also taunting Antony Joshua. "I'm going on a holiday and I need six months away from this man", Fury's trainer Ben Davison joked to media. "Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet".

Round Seven was the most exciting round of the fight with both men exchanging shots that got through but Wilder also, once again, being made to miss. I wanted to show the world it's possible. That ain't a great thing, by the way, because I've had a very low time doing it.

Fury said he is yet to watch the whole fight, just the knockdowns.

"The world knows who the real WBC champion is".

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

"If I didn't get knocked down twice, on one of the scorecard I would have still lost".

"When you're at each other and you have a great fight, we give each other all we've got". He did say in the changing room before the fight, "If anyone goes down I will give you chance to prove you're okay".

A punch to the top of Fury's head shockingly put him down in the ninth, but he bounced up quickly.

Until Wilder's sensational final round knockdown, Fury appeared to be heading for what would have been a remarkable upset. In his worst state, Fury was almost 400 pounds. "Only God knows how he got back up". Wilder then went on the chase, and the referee appeared to be close to stopping the fight, but Fury fired back in the final minute of the fight.

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