Mexican judge Alejandro Rochin scored it 115-111 for Wilder - the second judge from Canada scored the fight 114-112 in Fury's favor, while the English judge had it even-Steven at 113-133.

"I think with the two knockdowns, I definitely won the fight", Wilder said of the draw. "We're the best in the world".

With many ex-professionals, pundits and fans having scored the fight as a points victory for the Gypsy King, many where shocked when the official decision of a draw was delivered by the ring announcer at the end of the fight.

A punch to the top of Fury's head shockingly put him down in the ninth, but he bounced up quickly. "You can't take it with you so I might as well do something with it and help out people who can't help themselves", he said.

They also recommended his wife, Sara Netanyahu , face charges of bribery, fraud, breach of trust and obstruction of evidence. Israel's attorney general Avichai Mandelblit will make the final decision as to whether to indict the prime minister.

And when asked if he thought Joshua could have got up from the punches that knocked him down, Fury was steadfast in his response: "No way, no way, he can't move so he would never have got out of the way of Wilder". I think when he's exhausted he's more unsafe because he just flings those punches around and if one of them hit you round the head, you're going to go down and it happened.

Tyson Fury says a "holy hand" brought him back from the 12th round knockdown. "The world knows I won the fight". I was too hesitant.

Fury responded admirably to a big step up in competition after a lengthy absence and two warmup bouts, but Wilder got him in just enough trouble to earn a draw.

Fury struggled to generate consistent offense until a strong sixth round, likely costing himself early rounds. Actor Michael Rappoport agreed with Berto agreed on some level, but wants to "see more from" Deontay Wilder going forward.

A Dallas County grand jury delivered the indictment after considering the evidence against Amber Guyger on Monday and Wednesday. Merritt claimed that she did not realize she was at the wrong apartment until she called 911 and was asked for her location.

Fury was elusive and creative in the seventh and eighth rounds, and Wilder appeared to be out of answers.

"It's an iconic comeback". I had to get back up.

There were plenty more backing Fury on social media.

And yet, out of nowhere, with almost 34 minutes of fighting in the tank, Fury was able to spring back to life like a man possessed, beating the count.

South Africa's tries were scored by Siviwe Soyizwapi, Branco du Preez, Kyle Brown and Rosko Specman, who ran in two five pointers. Australia also went through the mill in their semi-final and felt heartbreak at the death.

The fight attracted the celebrity attention expected in Hollywood from actors and athletes alike.
