Judges final score: Robert Tapper: 114-112 in favor of Tyson, while Alejandro Rochin gave his verdict, 115-111, in favour of Deontay Wilder. Phil Edwards 113-113. Certainly, the two brutal knockdowns had helped Wilder to retain the title’s knockdowns compensating for Fury’s superior technique.

During the fight Saturday, December 1, at Staples Center, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A., the Briton, Tyson Fury was floored twice – in the 9th round and in the 12th [final] round. It is unclear how Fury became energized, stood up on his feet a few seconds after brutal knocks from Wilder’s right hand cum a left hook had put him flat on the canvas in the 12th round.

At the end, Fury, who returned to boxing after a 30-month absence, during which he served a suspension and battled with drug abuse, depression, said:

“One hundred per cent we’ll do the rematch. We are two great champions. Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet. I hope I did you all proud after nearly three years out of the ring. I was never going to be knocked out tonight. I showed good heart to get up. I came here tonight and I fought my heart out.”
