Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury sold one of the biggest battles in 2018, and with the lady now living in Los Angeles, we still can not be sure who the better man is between the two.
Wilder and Fury fought for a split draw tonight on Showtime pay-per-view, in front of a reported 17,698 fans at STAPLES Center, rated 114-110 Fury, 115-111 Wilder and 113-113. BLH had the match 114-112 for rage on both of our scorecards.
Fury (27-0-1, 19 KO) is still the recognized – at least by many world champions, while Wilder (40-0-1, 39KO) is hanging out on his WBC title.
What we know is this: these are at least two of the top three heavyweights in the sport today. Wilder thought it was difficult to land his power punches at Fury, whose slippery defense and herky-rushing movement made him fit too much of the boat.
But when Wilder landed he did a little damage. He blew the fury nose in the fourth round of a jab and then released him with a shot behind the ear in the ninth. In the end, however, what saved the battle for Wilder and kept him from a split decision loss. It was a monstrous 1
2th round, where he tagged Fury with a thundering right hand which, frankly, almost everyone who looked at life’s mind was the end of the match.
Instead, Fury came remarkably back to his feet and struggled, even that he broke Wilder with a good left hook that seemed to deter the weary American from going to goal.
will be discussed. Of course, a drawing brings it out, and in fact, even a competitive battle at this level, many people who see things are very different. But the battle itself had some fireworks, exhibited a strange style damage that worried both men at different points and more or less lived up to hype.
Of course, every man thought he had done enough to win, but unlike their press conferences that built the bolt, there was no animosity shown by the two fighters in the ring when the match was over. When Wilder tried to come to fury after the match, Fury has to call on people to “let him go through” before the two embraced a genuine show of respect.
“I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the match, says Wilder to the showtime’s Jim Gray.” We poured our hearts out tonight. We both are warriors. With these two drops, I feel like we won the match. “
” We are on the ground, I knocked down twice, but I still think I won the match, “said Fury to Gray.” I show total professionalism here. I am a true champion, a real warrior. I went to Germany to fight Klitschko, I came to America to fight the Wilder. Bless Deontay Wilder, he is a top-fighter man. “
Of course, it also spoke of a rematch.
” The rematch I guarantee, I will get him, “says Wilder. ” We will make the rematch, “said Fury.” We are two great champions . Me and this man here are the two best heavyweights on the planet. “
