Wilder remains WBC heavyweight champion after draw with Fury
03 December, 2018, 04:34
American Deontay Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight title after a thrilling split decision draw with Britain's Tyson Fury at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, leaving both fighters talking up a rematch.
In 2015, Furyshocked the world when he won the titles of the three most important ranking boxing organisations, the IBF, WBO and WBA by beating long-reigning Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in a unanimous decision.
"We will be writing to the WBC, asking that they review this, look at what has gone on and order a rematch", he said. I came back from suicide and mental depression and substance abuse. He has a great right hand but he wasn't able to put it to bed until the last couple of rounds.
The 30-year-old excelled throughout, impressively recovering from two knockdowns - the second remarkably heavy - but was harshly made the victor with only one of the three ringside judges after scores of 115-111 (in Wilder's favour), 112-114, and 113-113.
The only person Fury didn't have kind words for was unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs), who failed to finalize a much-hyped bout against Wilder that would've crowned the first four-belt undisputed champion in heavyweight history.
"I'm not going to sit here and complain, and scream robbery or whatever", Fury said. "Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet". I wanted to show the world it's possible. "I believe all kids should make their own money in life because if they don't, they won't appreciate it", Fury said.
Fury thought he won the fight all the same.
Rajinikanth-starrer to continue its winning streak BoxOfficeIndia stated that East Punjab crossed Rs 2.50 crore nett, while Delhi / UP was close to touching Rs 6 crore nett. The weekend collection for the film is expected to be high as advanced bookings for the shows continue.
In terms of the jab, Fury connected with 46 of his 223 attempts, compared to 40 of 248 by his opponent and in power shots, it was 38 from 104 for the Gypsy King, compared with 31 out of 182 for the reigning champion.
And yet, out of nowhere, with almost 34 minutes of fighting in the tank, Fury was able to spring back to life like a man possessed, beating the count.

Promoter Frank Warren said he and the British Boxing Board of Control will write to the WBC demanding a rematch. Wilder's got lightning fists and he has dynamite in his hands.
Wilder, the more aggressive of the two fighters early on, quickly moved into the lead after the opening rounds.
"I hope I did you all proud after almost three years out of the ring", Fury continued. Wilder then went on the chase, and the referee appeared to be close to stopping the fight, but Fury fired back in the final minute of the fight.
