Wilder retains WBC heavyweight belt after battling to draw against Fury

Tyson Fury looks up as he receives a count from referee Jack Reiss in the ninth round fighting to a draw with Deontay Wilder during the WBC Heavyweight Championship at Staples Center on December 1, 2018, in Los Angeles, California.

Of the 39 men to have stepped into the ring in a professional setting with Wilder before tonight's encounter with the Englishman Tyson Fury, only one had made it long enough to hear the final bell. Judge Phil Edwards and The Associated Press both scored it a 113-113 draw, with Wilder's knockdowns compensating for Fury's superior technique. "We're both warriors but with those two drops I think I won the fight", he said in the ring after the fight.

With the vast majority of the fans inside Staples Center and across social media believing Fury had done more than enough to win, the fight ended without a victor.

Manny Pacquiao is looking forward to seeing a second chapter in the Wilder-Fury story after watching "two great heavyweights trading shots".

"I'm not gonna sit here and complain all night, I thought I won the fight", he added.

Judge Robert Tapper saw the fight in Fury's favour, giving the Brit a 114-110 score, while Alejandro Rochin was clearly more impressed by the defending champion as he gave Wilder a 115-111 total.

Wilder, who remains unbeaten after 41 fights, immediately called for a rematch.

"When I rush my punches like that I'm never accurate".

But then Fury got up - and somehow, won the remainder of the round.

"I would love for it to be my next fight", Wilder said of the rematch.

"They need to get some good judges, these judges were awful", he said.

Three years ago, Fury (27-0-1, 19 KO's), 30, was a three-belt unified world titleholder after he shocked the world with a lopsided unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitschko, but the celebration was short-lived, as his entire world came crashing down on him.

But Joshua, the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion, certainly will have had some interesting thoughts as he watched on. I rushed my punches. Fury counter-punched his way through the fifth round, though most of the shots he threw upstairs were blocked by Wilder. Fury was back to his quicksilver boxing in a wonderfully impressive round 10, shaking off the damage sustained in the previous session.

A right hand sent Fury rocking backwards towards the deck and a brutal left hand on the way down appeared to be the coup de grace for the challenger.

Fury by contrast cleverly picked his moments, finding Wilder with greater accuracy and causing a nasty swelling over the American's left eye.
