Controversy as Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder title bout ends in draw

Wilder keeps heavyweight title fights Fury to split draw

Wilder retains WBC heavyweight belt after battling to draw against Fury

The official scores were 114-110 for Fury, a stunning 115-111 for Wilder and 113-113, resulting in a split draw, which allowed Wilder to retain his title.

Fury battled back from depression and alcohol and drug abuse to return to boxing after a two-and-a-half hiatus back in June and nearly capped off a remarkable year by being crowned the world heavyweight champion again on Saturday night.

Former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis says he "knew" the judges would "gift" a draw to WBC belt holder Deontay Wilder in Saturday's thrilling bout against British fighter Tyson Fury, which brought back painful memories. Although he didn't land it with full force, he dropped Fury, who did not seem badly hurt.

"We're the two best in the world and we proved it tonight". It was a great fight, so let's do it again.

Deontay Wilder also opened up on the controversial outcome of the fight, assuring that he feels he did enough to win. Wilder said. "I will probably end up giving him a second opportunity before any of these so-called best give him even one opportunity because they are anxious about their clean records".

"I felt it was close but that the two knockdowns put me over the top", said the American, 33", he said.

"One hundred percent we'll do the rematch", Fury said.

He came close, dropping Fury in the ninth round and again in the final round, but Fury showed the same kind of heart and will that helped him overcome the nightmare of the past three years since he won three major titles and the lineal championship three years ago this week in a monumental upset of Klitschko, the longtime champion.

It looks all over as Tyson Fury thuds to the canvas after being knocked down by Deontay Wilder during the 12th round. "The respect was mutual".

The fight went the way that the Englishman wanted and Wilder was more defensive than he has ever been, only really daring to come out of his shell in the final 10 seconds of each round.

'It's not been any secret what I've been doing out of the ring, ' Fury said.

"I thought I won the fight.", Fury said at the post-fight press conference. "Fury's stock went up!"

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

"If it's a great fight and fans want to see the rematch then why not?"

A year later, he vacated his titles, following an investigation into doping and a cancelled rematch with Klitschko.

In the champion's favour were the two knockdowns he managed against the challenger, which nonetheless should have been insufficient in helping him to a draw. It doesn't matter to me where we do it.
