USA: Stubborn Fury somehow beats 12th round count to deny Wilder

Tyson Fury, British boxer: «One hundred percent we'll do the rematch. We're going to go away, recalculate, see what's got to happen, get back together. We are two great champions, never mind anybody. Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet.» Deontay Wilder, American boxer: «I totally one hundred percent agree with that. We're the two best in the world and we proved it tonight... Еще. When you get two warriors that want to give a great show for the fans, you get a great fight. That's what we proved tonight and I'm ready to do it again.» British boxer Tyson Fury defied a 12th round count to deny American fighter Deontay Wilder a winning WBC title defence at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Despite a clear advantage over Wilder in most of the rounds, two knockdowns forced Fury to beat the count. A vicious combination in the 12th looked to have sealed the Alabaman a win but Fury astonishingly made it to his feet on the nine. After a split decision, 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 RESTRICTIONS: NO SOCIAL MEDIA USE ONLY FOR NEWS PURPOSES CAN BE DISTRIBUTED IN USA AND CANADA ONLY MANDATORY CREDIT TO SHOWTIME CAN BE USED ONLY UNTIL DEC 9
