Wilder retains heavyweight crown after Fury thriller ends in draw
02 December, 2018, 12:43 | Author: Heather Diaz
Fury appeared to be on his way to a decision victory when he came out for the final round - and a minute later, he looked totally finished when Wilder put him on his back with a right-left combination.
Judge Robert Tapper saw the fight in Fury's favour, giving the Brit a 114-110 score, while Alejandro Rochin was clearly more impressed by the defending champion as he gave Wilder a 115-111 total.
'We're on away soil, I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won that fight, ' Fury said. We poured our hearts out. "I was never going to be knocked out tonight".

Fury is aiming to reach the mountaintop of the heavyweight division - a position he once enjoyed after his win over the legendary Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. The 6-foot-9 Fury spent almost every moment of the fight nimbly avoiding Wilder's punches in a masterful display - except for the two moments when the 6-foot-7 Wilder viciously knocked him to the canvas. I don't know what fight he was watching.
The consensus was that Fury outboxed Wilder despite his 12th round knockdown
Fury had little to say to BT Sport after the weigh-in, simply saying of Wilder: "He's flapping". "We are two great champions". Each will make adjustments based on their review of the video, but what this fight showed is two evenly matched men at the top of their games.
Until a sensational final round knockdown from Wilder, Fury appeared to be heading towards what would have been a remarkable upset.
Still, the knockdown scuppered his hopes of becoming a two-time world champion, with the controversial outcome seeing both retain their unbeaten record while also paving the way for a lucrative rematch in 2019. Early on Wilder just missed with some big punches but as the rounds progressed Wilder started lunging more and missing by wider margins.
