Wilder and Fury draw in bout that Englishman clearly dominated

But on Saturday at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Fury's mind told him 'You didn't come this far just to lay down, not even to the most risky puncher in the sport.' Fury did not just get up, he came back and rocked Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KO's) late as they battled to the end in a classic heavyweight battle before 17,698 fans, but the bout was ruled a controversial split draw.

Even amid the fact that for the first time Fury did not win, the nature of the fight - significantly more entertaining than when he awkwardly defeated Wladimir Klitschko - means Fury's reputation is at its greatest.

There was one title change in a special match held in Montreal prior to the pay-per-view's start, as Oleksandr Gvozdyk stopped Adonis Stevenson in the 11th round to become the new WBC light heavyweight champion.

"I fought back from suicide and mental health and depression and anxiety and I wanted more than anything tonight to show the world that it can be done", he said.

He had earlier frustrated Wilder with his jab and a succession of accurate right hands, but the American's late attack salvaged his WBC belt on the scorecards.

Tyson Fury dominated long stretches of his heavyweight title bout against Deontay Wilder with shifty technique and graceful defense. I feel sorry for him because he definitely won it but that's the way it goes sometimes. I promise you.' I said, 'I am the fighting man and I'll step up and represent my country.' And tonight I did that.

The 30-year-old Briton was knocked down twice in the ninth and 12th rounds but out-boxed Wilder for the majority of the contest.

"I thought I won the fight".

Fed Chair’s comments on slower hikes to boost EMs
The FOMC is likely to link future interest rate decisions more closely to incoming data and then decide on a case-by-case basis. In a speech Wednesday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell raised similar points, which sent stock markets surging.

Fury, who vacated his titles in 2016, also thought he had done enough to beat his opponent.

"I see it in boxing, they get up after a few seconds and the legs are gone".

Despite the knockdown it was Fury looking the fresher man and Wilder was unable to take advantage of his 10-8 round in the 10th. I went to Germany to fight Klitschko and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder.

Tyson Fury says a "holy hand" brought him back from the 12th round knockdown. And I come in here - I said to Deontay, 'I'm sorry for what's happened to you.' Deontay's got the text and I'm sure he'll tell you the same.

"We are two great champions", he said. After Joshua-Wilder negotiations fell apart, the always opportunistic Fury sped up his comeback plans to call out Wilder and play spoiler on the division's best-laid plans.

There were plenty more backing Fury on social media. But Fury went down again - and almost everybody thought it was for good.

Fury had every reason to be unhappy at the judges' verdict.
