How To Watch Deontay Wilder vs

Wilder's promoter Lou DiBella agreed that the Fury rematch should take priority, making the case that Wilder and Fury are the two best heavyweights in the division. "You put two warriors in the ring, that want to put on a show for the fans, you get a great fight".

Fury, who returned from boxing this year after a more than two-year absence as his life spiralled out of control with depression, a suicide attempt and problems with alcohol and drugs, said he had got to his feet in the 12th to inspire others. Fury would try to steal rounds with late flurries and then raising his hands in triumph as the bell sounded. I didn't sit still. The Englishman made Wilder miss constantly, particularly ducking under Wilder's big right hand with grace.

Fury went right back to work in the next two rounds, and a decision appeared to be in reach.

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

Fury who remains undefeated there are few questions arise here as to whether he's fully back to the form he showcased when he outpointed the longstanding reign of Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015.

Deontay Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight crown here yesterday after battling to a split decision draw against Britain's Tyson Fury in a pulsating 12-round battle. Fury was in a groove, bouncing and moving in and out and not giving Wilder a clear target to hit, even though he carried his left hand very low, nearly below his waist, in an inviting opening for Wilder's big right hand. Fury, on a steady comeback after his career was almost derailed two years ago from personal issues, arguably never looked better in his life inside the ring.

"We gave each other all we've got", Wilder said.

It wasn't until the ninth round that Wilder landed a heavy blow. Wilder struggled to land a punch as Fury's constant movement kept the champion off balance.

"Tyson will fight in the United Kingdom again". "That's what we proved tonight, and I'm ready to do it again".

The challenger was flat-out on the canvas but somehow found a way to not only recover to beat the count but also box the better of the two men down the stretch. I just showed the world tonight, everyone suffering with mental health, that you can come back and it can be done.

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

"What sort of sick people have you got to be".
