Boxing promoter to complain about Wilder-Fury draw

Boxing promoter to complain about Wilder-Fury draw

Inside the Staples Center, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will defend his title against former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

One judge awarded the fight to Wilder, one to Fury, and one couldn't separate them.

With just two minutes left in the fight, Wilder buckled Fury's knees with a right hand and knocked him senseless with a ideal left on the way down. He has a great right hand but he wasn't able to put it to bed until the last couple of rounds. "Only God knows how he got back up".

"It happened to me and I knew it was going to happen to him". "I had a holy hand upon me tonight and brought me back".

Fury's incredible recovery inspired multiple references to The Undertaker, the WWE icon who also dramatically got up from a coffin and after a knockdown.

After the fight, Fury, sporting crimson abrasions around the eyes, spoke to reporters to herald his emerging victorious from a battle that rather took place far from the ring lights. I'm not going to complain.

"And when I was down, I wasn't just down on the canvas in round 12 for me and my family. I'll leave the audience to make up their mind". In hindsight it's hard to see how the judge favouring Wilder and the judge who scored it a draw could have given the American even six of the 12 rounds. "That's what we proved tonight, and I'm ready to do it again".

"I've spoken to Charlie Giles, president of the British Boxing Board of Control and they, along with us, will be writing to the WBC asking that they look at what's gone on there and to order the rematch", Warren said.

Wilder, who remains unbeaten after 41 fights, immediately called for a rematch.

Deontay Wilder has built a name and a fortune by leaving Heavyweight fighters flat out at his feet.

"It's no secret that Joshua did not want this fight", Fury told his media conference.

Opinions were divided on the judges' decision, however, with some claiming that Fury was robbed of one of the greatest comebacks in history despite two knockdowns.

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

Eventually, Wilder's thunderous punches landed. In all the other rounds the fighters were separated by a single point.

But the contest was scored 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113 as a draw was declared, meaning Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight title.

Wilder however suddenly found a devastating combination just when he needed it in the 12th round.

Even though Wilder made a throat-slashing gesture and mouthed "It's over", Fury beat the count and went back to work.
