Fury in a sing-a-long mood after shock draw with Wilder

Despite a contentious split decision in his WBC Heavyweight Championship bout against reigning champion Deontay Wilder at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Tyson Fury was clearly in a jovial mood at his press conference on Saturday night. Fury stood up to belt out a rendition of Don McLean's 1971 hit single 'American Pie', accompanied by his trainer Ben Davison, and called on the gathered... Еще reporters to join in. Although the Gypsy King won most of the rounds, the Bronze Bomber knocked Fury down twice. Both fighters were unable to explain how the Brit got back up from the canvas in the 12th. Fury claimed that he should have been declared the winner on points while Wilder complained that the referee started the count late when the Mancunian was on the floor after being knocked down. Both fighters leave undefeated while Wilder retains the heavyweight world champion title. The contentious decision leaves a second bout between Wilder and Fury highly likely, although no further details were unveiled. Criticism of judge Alejandro Rochin's scoring has been widespread, with many spectators and pundits questioning how he could award rounds 2, 3 and 4 to Wilder. Scores Alejandro Rochin: Fury 111 — 115 Wilder Robert Tapper: Fury 114 — 110 Wilder Phil Edwards: Fury 113-113 Wilder
