Deontay Wilder Couldn't Believe His Eyes When Tyson Fury Got Up

  • Wilder retains WBC heavyweight belt after battling to draw against Fury

When asked if this was his preference, Fury was vague at post-fight press conference.

"I don't think Wilder wanted to come to London, that's why Tyson (travelled)".

The champion scored two knockdowns in the contest but struggled throughout to find the target against the tricky and tactically astute Fury, who used his superior boxing skills to control proceedings for long spells.

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

"I want to win the WBC belt and finish my collection", Fury had said before the bout.

"It has to be down to Tyson, but from my perspective, I'd love the rematch", Warren said.

And one man who was impressed with Fury's ability to complete the round was Eddie Hearn, Anthony Joshua's promoter. "I got depressed right away, afterwords".

While the most common circumstances are for the defending champion, in this case Wilder, to have such an option, it has also been extended to the 30-year-old Fury, who had not planned such a risky fight so soon into his comeback and who is still regarded by some as the division's lineal champion.


"We want to do it again but we want to do it in the (United Kingdom)". I showed good heart to get up.

"I'm just going to enjoy the moment because the last big fight I didn't enjoy the moment", said Fury.

Fury appeared to be on his way to a decision victory when he came out for the final round - and a minute later, he looked totally finished when Wilder put him on his back with a right-left combination.

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.

Fury recovered well however and regained his composure to resume where he had left off.

"Very few men in the history of boxing can pop up like that", DiBella said.

Fury went on to say that he'd found the energy to get up because he's recently persevered through so much; weighing 400 pounds and caught in a cycle of drug and alcohol addiction in recent years, he'd considered suicide. (When he got up) I was sitting there going "Oh my god".

He said winning would be "the first chapter of a new storybook, the beginning of a new life, a new era of Tyson Fury". "I was representing everyone who suffers around the world". When you get two warriors you get a great fight.
