Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury, Split Draw (115-111 Wilder, 114-110 Fury, 113-113)

Tyson Fury controlled much of his Heavyweight title fight showdown with Deontay Wilder, but it was Wilder who scored the big moments. The story of most rounds was Fury using his movement and feints to keep Wilder throwing wide shots that did not connect. But twice, Wilder put Fury down, and twice, Fury got back up. The ending of the fight was amazing, amazing drama. Fury went down HARD in round 12, looking to all the world like he was down and unconscious. But as referee Jack Rees counted, Fury somehow managed to regain his feet, getting up at 9. Fury fought back and not only survived the final round, but had his own successes in there as well.

Going to the judges, there was great tension over how all would turn out. And in the end, the result was a highly unsatisfying split draw. Both men remain undefeated, but both pick up the first draw of their career, all but guaranteeing an immediate rematch.
