Wilder, Fury draw in epic heavyweight showdown

Even though Wilder made a throat-slashing gesture and mouthed "It's over", Fury beat the count and went back to work.

A photo of both Wilder and Fury's expressions directly after the result was announced sums up most people's feelings on the fight.

"He needs sacking or to go to Specsavers". "It's stuff like this that gives boxing a bad name".

"I don't know anybody on the planet who could move like that".

In addition, SHOWTIME BOXING: SPECIAL EDITION will stream live on SHOWTIME Sports social channels beginning at 7:45 p.m. ET/4:45 p.m. PT and feature one-fight coverage from Canada as boxing's longest-reigning world champion Adonis Stevenson makes the 10th defense of his WBC Light Heavyweight Title against unbeaten mandatory challenger Oleksandr Gvozdyk.

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.

"He must be thanking his lucky stars that he still has the green and gold belt".

'It's not been any secret what I've been doing out of the ring, ' Fury said.

Lennox Lewis, the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, was among those who pointed out in the aftermath how tough it is for a British fighter to be given a decision on American soil.

Wilder, who also had Fury on the deck in the ninth round, was adamant he had won.

His trainer Ben Davison, promoter Frank Warren and even legendary boxing trainer Freddie Roach joined in.

The WBC will sit down in the coming weeks to discuss the matter and vote on whether to force Wilder into a rerun with Fury. "Only God knows how he got back up".

And now he wants the chance to do it again.

Opinions were divided on the judges' decision, however, with some claiming that Fury was robbed of one of the greatest comebacks in history despite two knockdowns.

"Everybody out there suffering from the same problems, I did it for you". I'm like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

Ice Cube's rushed interview with TMZ last night was a good example of a fan being coerced by a persuasive moment in a fight.

Warren is keen to bring the second fight to the United Kingdom and Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel is happy for his man to travel. Wilder has emerged as a great heavyweight champion, and he continues to prove that.

He said: "Anything is a possibility. Let's see what we do next".
