Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury Match Controversially Ends in Draw Despite Two Knockdown

WBC Champion, Deontay Wilder, defended his title against fellow unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury in the biggest heavyweight fight in the United States, since Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson in 2002.

After an epic display of resilience and strength, the judges saw fit to score the bout 115-111 for Wilder, 114-110 for Fury and 113-113 down the middle.

The big fight placing the Bomber against the Gypsy King took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, December 1.

 

It was a memorable night to remember and a fight that truly lived up to its billing as both fighters hammered one another as they sought ultimate glory and bragging rights of standing undefeated.

And Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) who made an unbelievable comeback to return to the ring will be pleased with himself as he is the first fighter Wilder did not dispatch with his thunderous wild blows.

Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs) actually knocked out Fury twice, but Fury’s resilience paid off as he kept on getting up and composed himself.

Fury tactically outwitted Wilder and also landed some equally heavy blows as he evaded Deontay’s killer punches.

And the 12th round knockout was particularly astounding, as Wilder delivered his signature power blow that should have guaranteed him victory but Fury got up and shook it off yet again.

Meanwhile, wehad earlier reported that Tyson Fury has taken time out of his preparations for Saturday’s WBC heavyweight title fight against Deontay Wilder to have a clean shave ahead of the showdown in Los Angeles.

According to a UK Daily Mail report, journalists were surprised to see Fury wearing a new look, as the pugilist opened up on his desire to knockout Wilder and claim the WBC heavyweight belt.
