Deontay Wilder Couldn't Believe His Eyes When Tyson Fury Got Up

Deontay Wilder Couldn't Believe His Eyes When Tyson Fury Got Up

Tyson Fury will go into Saturday's blockbuster heavyweight title fight with Deontay Wilder with a weight advantage of almost 50 pounds.

One judge scored the bout 115-111 for Wilder, another 114-112 for Fury, and the third 113-113, allowing Wilder to retain his WBC belt and prompting inevitable and justified calls for a rematch.

At the end of the second round, Wilder landed with a hammer one-two, the most notable combination of the fight up until that point, which Fury brushed off with familiar contempt, raising his arms in the air and mocking the champion with a leg shuffle.

Fury meanwhile insisted he had done enough to win.

By the fourth round, Wilder began to detonate his feared right hand, to limited success, with Fury dipping just slightly out of range every time the American loaded up.




From cutting blistering promos on one another to signature poses and catchphrases, Wilder and Fury have brought almost every major pro wrestling element into their high-profile feud for the WBC Heavyweight Championship.

The two undefeated heavyweights have combined for 58 knockouts in their 67 career fights, with Deontay Wilder holding the majority of those finishes with 39. There weren't any more big punches after that but the fact Fury was even able to get back up from such a vicious knockdown spoke volumes. Wilder tried going to the body too but, more often than not, his punches landed harmlessly on Fury's massive elbows.

Judge Phil Edwards and the Associated Press scored it a 113-113 draw, with Wilder's knockdowns compensating for Fury's superior technique.

Fury was calm after the decision was confirmed, but insisted in his post-fight interview he felt being the away fighter worked against him.
