Fury philosophical after Wilder draw

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

Former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis led the condemnation of the judges who denied Tyson Fury a fairytale win over Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles.

It was a buzzkill ending to what had been an entertaining fight in which Fury used constant movement and sharp punching to win rounds, while Wilder waited patiently to land the big punch.

"Listen, we are on away soil and I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won the fight, and I believe every man in here believes I won too", Fury said in his post-fight interview with Showtime Boxing.

Judge Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-112 for Fury, while Alejandro Rochin favored Wilder 115-111.

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.

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.

"When you get two warriors, you get a great fight", Wilder said. I went to Germany to fight [Wladimir] Klitschko and I've come to America to fight Wilder. But Fury went down again - and almost everybody thought it was for good. However, like in the 12th round, Fury recovered quickly and began to land punches again on the champion.

Trump barrels into G-20 summit after nixing Putin meeting
And while we don't know the final details of the USMCA, we do know that it largely resembles, in many ways, what was there before. On Thursday, as Trump was leaving Washington for Argentina, his former attorney and fixer, Michael D.

Wilder insisted afterwards that his two knockdowns had done enough to secure victory - but very few shared the same opinion. I think when he's exhausted he's more risky because he just flings those punches around and if one of them hit you round the head, you're going to go down and it happened.

Even though Wilder made a throat-slashing gesture and mouthed "It's over", Fury beat the count and went back to work.

The fight went the way that the Englishman wanted and Wilder was more defensive than he has ever been, only really daring to come out of his shell in the final 10 seconds of each round. It was a great fight, so let's do it again. "I came here tonight and I fought my heart out".

In ballyhooed a matchup of two towering men for the WBC heavyweight title, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder displayed everything but settled nothing. Wilder has emerged as a great heavyweight champion, and he continues to prove that.

"In a rematch, I can only imagine that he will be even better prepared".

"I don't know how I get up, I had a holy hand upon me today and that got me back", Fury said after the fight. It doesn't matter to me where we do it.

According to CompuBox punch statistics, Wilder landed 71 of 430 shots (17 percent), and Fury landed 84 of 327 (26 percent).
