Wilder retains heavyweight crown after Fury thriller ends in draw

Wilder retains WBC heavyweight belt after battling to draw against Fury

Fury survived two knockdowns in an enthralling bout with WBC heavyweight champion Wilder in Los Angeles.

Wilder and Fury fought to a split draw Saturday night, with Wilder retaining his WBC heavyweight title after knocking down his British challenger twice.

Of course, Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KO), disagreed, saying, "I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight".

"It's no secret that Joshua did not want this fight", Fury told his media conference. That man is a fearsome puncher and I was able to avoid that.

Of course, in the final stanza, Wilder's sledgehammer blows left Fury flat on his back and seemingly out for the count. "He can't move like me, he'd have been nailed!" I was never going to be knocked down tonight. I lost the plan as I was trying to get him out of there.

Fury was gradually building a convincing lead into the fight's second half as he landed with several straight rights, even when Wilder's occasional successes looked the more hurtful.

"I'd like to see it in the United Kingdom, fill a football stadium up, fill up Wembley, Arsenal, any of those big stadiums".

As you can see there, it doesn't take Fury too long to get back up on his fight and continue on into the fight, but it was the WAY that Fury got back up that grabbed the attention of most viewers.

The G-20 meeting in Buenos Aires comes amid growing economic uncertainty and global displeasure with Trump's trade policy. United Nations officials branded the move "illegal" and it was condemned by the West.

Staples Center had a frenzied atmosphere after the high-energy introductions, but the fighters settled into a technical bout early.

"None were like Fury when it came to publicity and generating news stories and none were like Wilder when it came to finding punches and dropping people". "We poured our hearts out tonight".

"The rematch, I guarantee I'm going to get him", Wilder said.

"In a rematch, I can only imagine that he will be even better prepared".

If there was one thing to perfectly sum up the collected feeling of shock reverberating around the world as Fury opened his eyes and sat up, like a man who had just been resuscitated, it was the expression etched on Wilder's face as he watched it happen from across the ring. It doesn't matter to me where we do it. "We defended a little better than in the last match, of course". Fury was back to his quicksilver boxing in a wonderfully impressive round 10, shaking off the damage sustained in the previous session.

Fury was elusive and creative in the seventh and eighth rounds, and Wilder had few answers.

"We are two great champions", he said.

On the first occasion, the fall was not as extreme as in the final round but as he has displayed in the past, it appears that heavy falls only serve to strengthen the resolve of Fury. The champion's trademark wild, looping punches rarely found their mark.
