Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury

Fans fuming at split decision as Deontay Wilder retains WBC heavyweight title

"I'm what you call a professional athlete, who loves to box", Fury told BT Sport Box Office.

At the end of the second round, Wilder landed with a hammer one-two, the most notable combination of the fight up until that point, which Fury brushed off with familiar contempt, raising his arms in the air and mocking the champion with a leg shuffle.

"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.

"I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight", said Wilder afterwards.

The victor was projected to face Joshua, the WBA, IBF and WBO title-holder, for the undisputed championship. I came here and I fought my heart out.

The best part is that we might get to do it all over again.

He had earlier frustrated Wilder with his jab and a succession of accurate right hands, but the American's late attack salvaged his WBC belt on the scorecards.

The consensus was that Fury outboxed Wilder despite his 12th round knockdown

"That man is a fearsome puncher, but I avoided his shots tonight".

This truly is one of the most anticipated heavyweight title showdowns we've seen in quite some time, and below is all the information you need to catch the historic fight on Saturday.

A rematch appeared inevitable even before it was controversially announced a draw via scores of 115-111, 114-112 and 113-113 and owing to his classy, gutsy performance as he outboxed the champion, Fury would surely be the favourite.

Wilder scored two knockdowns and thought he won.

Fury somehow gathered his wits, rose and made it to the final bell. I went to Germany to fight Klitschko and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will probably meet in a rematch before either of them faces Anthony Joshua in a ring.

Wilder responded with increasingly desperate flurries of big punches, very few of which found their mark. A hard overhand right to the side of Fury's head dropped the Englishman for the first time in the fight.
