Wilder retains heavyweight crown after Fury thriller ends in draw

But while he won the overwhelming majority of rounds in my scorecard and dominated large segments of this fight with his deft movement and feints that threw Wilder off his rhythm, unfortunately he was struck down twice to the canvas in rounds 9, and most dramatically in the 12th, when the prevailing sense was that Wilder needed a miraculous finish to retain his title.

Mexican judge Alejandro Rochin scored the fight 115-111 to Wilder, Canada's Robert Tapper scored it 114-112 to Fury and the third judge, Britain's Phil Edwards, had it 113-113. Fury-Wilder II might be the preferred choice after the unsatisfying ending to their fight Saturday night at the Staples Center.

Reigning titleholder and undefeated Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO) will put his WBC heavyweight title on the line against Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KO) tonight (Sat., Dec. 1, 2018) in one of the biggest boxing matches of the year which will go live on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Per ESPN, Wilder will bank $4million for his efforts while Fury will take home $3 million, also both men have an opportunity to earn a share from PPV revenue.

But early in the ninth, Fury went down when he absorbed a shot to the top of the head from Wilder. "At the end of the fight, that's what it's all about", Wilder said. I don't know, " Fury said.

On the way down the American caught the challenger with a left and Fury seemed to be knocked down and out. He came close, dropping Fury in the ninth round and again in the final round, but Fury showed the same kind of heart and will that helped him overcome the nightmare of the past three years since he won three major titles and the lineal championship three years ago this week in a monumental upset of Klitschko, the longtime champion. "He was just telling me great fight, he loves me, and thank you for the opportunity".

"Wilder's got lightning fists and dynamite in his hands, he's a great fighter, I respect him a lot".

Classy combinations drew cheers from his supporters as Wilder failed to rise to the occasion, often missing the target horribly as he tried to land a big punch. "Why not? Let's give the fans what they want to see".

"Tyson will fight in the United Kingdom again". "Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet". "That's what we proved tonight, and I'm ready to do it again". "We're the best in the world".
