Deontay Wilder retains heavyweight crown after Fury thriller ends in draw

Anthony Joshua has got the bulk of the heavyweight belts but he doesn't have the respect of his top rivals Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury

"We're both warriors, but with those two drops, I think I won the fight". Because there were about 10,000 travellers, Brits, that came from around the world (to attend the fight).

"When I say I was on the brink of suicide - I mean suicide - and I came back with the help of [trainer] Ben Davison and a great team around me, we were able to achieve what we achieved tonight".

'I'm just an outsider with an opinion but it's a situation that is happening all over the world, especially in the United Kingdom as well'.

"I'm going to give it to the poor and I'm going to build homes for the homeless", Fury told The Mirror before the bout.

"Everybody out there, who has the same problems, I did that for you guys". He said many times that you "can't go swimming without getting wet", a reference to the inevitable punishment one takes in the ring, but he had a tongue-in-cheek addendum in regard to the shots Wilder delivered: "I got drenched, actually". No wonder AJ didn't want no part of that right hand.

Discussing her thoughts on a rematch, she said: "I said no".

Manny Pacquiao, who has won world titles in eight weight classes, added on the social networking site: "Respect to Fury for sticking to his game plan and to Wilder for closing the gap with two huge knockdowns!"

The Briton, his face marked and his hands sore after the battle, said: "I've never seen a worse decision in my life".

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder couldn't be separated on points as they fought an exciting draw in the WBC world heavyweight title clash in Los Angeles

There were plenty more backing Fury on social media. And I got wet.

Encouraged by his ability to turn his personal and professional sporting life around so drastically in the a year ago, Fury remained confident however that a rematch with Wilder would go in his favour, and sent a warning to other boxers that he was now in a "great place" to keep fighting.

The father of four, with one on the way, will make good money from this fight and there is already talk of a re-match.

"So Deontay will fight anyone, and he knows, and I know the next time he fights Fury, he'll be better".

Wilder jumped aboard: "I 100 per cent agree with that". I wasn't hurt. I did not sit still, I was too hesitant, I started overthrowing the right hand.

Until Wilder's sensational final round knockdown, Fury appeared to be heading for what would have been a remarkable upset.

Tyson Fury dominated long stretches of his heavyweight title bout against Deontay Wilder with shifty technique and graceful defense.

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