Tyson Fury calls out Anthony Joshua after split draw with Deontay Wilder

Share

In ballyhooed a matchup of two towering men for the WBC heavyweight title, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder displayed everything but settled nothing.

The fight went the way that the Englishman wanted and Wilder was more defensive than he has ever been, only really daring to come out of his shell in the final 10 seconds of each round. I was living like a rock star. "Anything is possible with the right mindset if you believe in yourself".

The Briton frustrated his big-hitting American counterpart but produced blows of his own, landing a stunning left-right in the seventh that prompted Wilder to give chase and swing to no avail as Fury evaded. He also didn't do anything to dissuade the idea that he's still the best heavyweight in the world. We're the two best in the world, and we proved it tonight, you know.

Wilder agreed with Fury, explaining that "I 100% agree with that".

"I think so, yeah". "I was never going to be knocked [out] tonight". I'm staying in downtown LA but if you go five minutes down the road there's like - I don't know - thousands of homeless people. I went to Germany to fight [Wladimir] Klitschko, and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder.

Fury struggled to generate consistent offense until a strong sixth round, likely costing himself early rounds.

Mexican judge Alejandro Rochin scored the fight 115-111 to Wilder, Canada's Robert Tapper scored it 114-112 to Fury and the third judge, Britain's Phil Edwards, had it 113-113. And after he got up, Fury was pushing him back.

"When I go home I'm going to build some homes for the homeless and set up some funds for drug addicts and alcoholics", he said.

But while he won the overwhelming majority of rounds in my scorecard and dominated large segments of this fight with his deft movement and feints that threw Wilder off his rhythm, unfortunately he was struck down twice to the canvas in rounds 9, and most dramatically in the 12th, when the prevailing sense was that Wilder needed a miraculous finish to retain his title. The Alabama native crashed a right hand just above Fury's ear in the eighth, sending him to the canvas. "He can't move like me, he'd have been nailed!"

The American champion struggled to connect cleanly with Fury throughout an absorbing contest, all too often sending huge arcing haymakers whistling past Fury's head.

Fury celebrates at the end of the 12th round. Three years later, the impossible almost happened again.

"I'm happy for the fight", Fury said.

"I would love it to be in London; if it's a good fight straight into a soccer stadium".
