Tyson Fury Survives Near Knockout, Settles for Split Draw with Deontay Wilder

Chelsea show another side to Sarri-ball- and it isn't pretty

Deontay Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight crown after battling to a split decision draw against Britain's Tyson Fury in a pulsating 12-round battle.

Tyson Fury taunts Deontay Wilder during their heavyweight title bout which ended in a draw.

Wilder had Fury on the canvas twice, including a spectacular final round knockdown, but was unable to get the knockout victory he had promised to deliver at the Staples Center.

With the scores set at 115 - 111 to Wilder, 110 - 114 in favour of Fury, and 113 - 113, that extra point one way or the other was unquestionably the difference between victory, defeat, and the draw. But Fury went down again - and almost everybody thought it was for good. "If this other promoter calls tomorrow like he said, we'll hear him out".

Lennox Lewis, former world heavyweight champion, said Fury was the clear victor of the bout, empathising with the "Gypsy King" as he referenced his own fight with Evander Holyfield that ended in a controversial draw back in 1999. It looked like the fight was over Fury barely beat referee Jack Reiss' count and even when Wilder rocked him in a follow-up attack Fury was still together enough to hold on. 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".

"But the world knows the truth - I thought I won the fight".

Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sports, which promotes Joshua, stayed up to watch the fight from England and told ESPN.com via email: "I had Fury winning the fight as most did".

Some 38 people died after they had a hemorrhagic fever, but it couldn't be verified whether they died of Ebola because they were buried without an autopsy.

"I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight", Wilder said.

In ballyhooed a matchup of two towering men for the WBC heavyweight title, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder displayed everything but settled nothing.

"None were like Fury when it came to publicity and generating news stories and none were like Wilder when it came to finding punches and dropping people". "It happened to me and I knew it was going to happen to him", said Lewis. "The respect was mutual".

"I've come away and I'm on away soil but what most disappointed me was the British judge. Fury's stock went up!"

"I had a holy hand upon me tonight", Fury said.

"If it's a great fight and fans want to see the rematch then why not?" It doesn't matter to me where we do it. He vacated his titles and spent 2 ½ years out of the ring before getting sober.

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.
