The spectacle of the year between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury ended with draw! As rare as it happens in the world of boxing, the judges were not unanimous in their decision, this way Wilder kept the WBC title and remains undefeated.
The Bronze Bomber sent twice the Linear Champion to knockdown, but Fury acted brilliant in the rest of the fight. However, the judges ruled a draw – 115: 111 for Wilder, 114: 110 for Fury and 113: 113. The curious fact is that the British has ruled the 113: 113 and took away of what many have described as Fury’s deserved victory.
The Gypsy King was one step away of realizing one of the most stunning storylines in boxing history at all. Now the rematch will be even more anticipated and even more spectacular. Both fighters deserve respect and praise for their performance, and particularly impressive was the way Fury stood up after the second knockdown in the last round, as if he seemed unconscious until the sixth second.
At the end of the match, the two embraced each other and talked for a long time as a friends.
The two champions are still undefeated – Wilder already has 40-0-1 (39KO) and Fury has 27 wins, 0 losses, 1 draw and 19 knockouts.
