He got up just before referee Jack Reiss counted to 10. A hard overhand right to the side of Fury's head dropped the Englishman for the first time in the fight.

"I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight", said Wilder afterwards. I don't know anyone on the planet that can move like that. I was living like a rock star. "... Only God knows how he got back up". "Anything is possible with the right mindset if you believe in yourself".

Deontay Wilder, right, connects with Tyson Fury. We're the best in the world.

The two-weight world champion posted: "A draw, I understand (even tho I feel Fury won by a 2 or 3 rds)". It's a comeback story worthy of a made-for-television movie due to how many people it might touch.

The 30-year-old "Gypsy King", who returned to boxing this year after missing more than two years through depression, drink and drug problems, had boxed cleverly to evade the heavy-hitting threat of Wilder for most of the fight.

Somehow, someway he managed to rise at the exact moment all hope was lost in a moment that properly encapsulated the personal journey that led Fury to the fight.

The next two rounds were fairly quiet in nature - though Wilder busted Fury's nose open late in the fourth.

"I think so, yeah". "I was never going to be knocked out tonight".

"It happened to me and I knew it was going to happen to him".

The opening rounds were to Fury's liking.

Yes. A draw. Wilder had scored another knockdown in Round 9, while Fury argued, and not without merit, that he'd won the fight with his acrobatic dodging of Wilder's punches. Halfway through the round, Fury began to fight back, swinging and holding until the controversial end. From our side we want that undisputed fight ASAP and that's Deontay Wilder in April 13 at Wembley.

Deontay Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight crown after battling to a split decision draw against Britain's Tyson Fury in a pulsating 12-round battle. "Ole AJ wanted no part of that right hand".

Well, after this disputed draw, there's really no choice but for Wilder to clear things up more definitively with Fury.

"?One hundred? percent we'll do the rematch", said Fury, fighting in the first heavyweight title pay-per-view bout in America since 2002. Three years later, the impossible almost happened again.

In the aftermath of the fight, while conducting an interview in the ring, Fury said "There's another certain heavyweight out there", before impersonating a chicken in an attempt to aggravate Joshua.
