Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury held apart at weigh

Shaheen Al-Shatti writing in Twitter said: "I've watched this 30 times and it's still stunning to me that Fury gets back up". While Joshua ended up facing his WBA mandatory challenger, Alexander Povetkin, back on September 22, Wilder took the fight with Fury.

"The only thing against him is he'd had a long lay-off (of nearly three years), and he's not boxed anywhere near the class he needs to now", McDermott, the last fighter said to have beaten Fury, told Press Association Sport. A right hook to the top of Fury's head in round nine dropped the big man after Fury was showboating, daring Wilder to hit him.

The WBC heavyweight title remained around Wilder's waist in the entertaining battle between two of the division's best. "I came out slow. I started overthrowing the right hand, and I just couldn't adjust".

"Many men probably wouldn't have gotten up from the knockdown but I did and that's what it is".

Critics felt that Fury, who had been knocked down in the ninth and 12th rounds, had comprehensively earned a decision on points, but it was ultimately scored a draw.

Fury appeared to be knocked out cold in the final round before somehow rising in time to continue. I thought I won the fight. "The world knows I won the fight".

At the end of the fight, Fury paid tribute to Wilder, whom he called the "second best heavyweight in the world" after himself, and expressing relative delight at his achievement of managing a draw on foreign soil in spite of the two knockdowns.

"With the two knockdowns I definitely won". Fury used his twitchy movement and near-constant feints to disrupt the rhythm of Wilder, whose trademark looping punches rarely found their mark. Fury seemed in control when Wilder landed his trademark, a howitzer of a right that landed on the side of Fury's head.
