Wilder retained his strap after the split decision draw at Staples Centre.

The 30-year-old felt he did enough to secure the victory despite being knocked down twice by Wilder - once in the ninth and again in the final round.

A controversial draw was the verdict from the judges at the Deontay Wilder/Tyson FuryWBC Heavyweight title bout in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

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

"We're on away soil, I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won that fight", said England's Fury, whose wonderful comeback continues following a two and a half-year absence from the sport.?

"This has been a great night for the sport, for heavyweight boxing, and heavyweight boxing in the U.S.", said Costello. "It was what it was", Fury said.

British judge Phil Edwards, meanwhile, couldn't separate the pair and saw the fight as a 113-113 draw, much to the frustration of both fighters and disgust of the fans inside the Staples Centre.

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.

As several former heavyweights had predicted beforehand, the longer the fight went on, the more Fury looked in control.

"The world knows the truth, I thought I won the fight, and I should have gone home with that belt, but we're on away soil so God bless his team, God bless America". "The world knows I won the fight". "We poured our hearts out tonight".

Fury's incredible recovery inspired multiple references to The Undertaker, the WWE icon who also dramatically got up from a coffin and after a knockdown.

"The rematch, I guarantee I'm going to get him", Wilder said.

The card also saw Luis Ortiz score an 11th-round knockout of Travis Kauffman and Joe Joyce get a first-round knockout win over Joe Hanks. I rushed my punches.

"Many men probably wouldn't have gotten up from the knockdown but I did and that's what it is". I was too hesitant. I wasn't hurt. I did not sit still, I was too hesitant, I started overthrowing the right hand.

The next two rounds were fairly quiet in nature - though Wilder busted Fury's nose open late in the fourth.

"To me Tyson Fury put himself in harm's way and caused himself to get knocked down".

If Wilder's explosive power already posed a significant threat, the biggest question surrounding Fury's chances was whether he had truly recovered from that period, in which he admitted to taking cocaine, becoming suicidal and lived to such excess he reached an estimated 27 stone.
