USA: Fury and Wilder doubt dubious draw after breath-taking brawl

The WBC Heavyweight Championship bout between the reigning Deontay Wilder and British lineal champion Tyson Fury ended up with a split decision at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night. 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... Еще 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
