The American professional boxer Deontay Wilder and Irish British professional boxer Tyson Fury fought it out in a 12-round match only for it all to end as a draw.
Both boxer remain unbeaten, Wilder 40-1, Fury 27-1. in the ninth and 12th rounds, yet Fury clearly outboxed Wilder for large portions of the remainder of their entertaining showdown.
Judge Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-112 for Fury, while Alejandro Rochin favored Wilder 115-111. Judge Phil Edwards, the only British judge, scored it a 113-113 draw.
Although Wilder retains his WBC heavyweight title with the result, promoter Frank Warren has said he’ll demand “for a rematch which we want in the UK.”
