Deontay Wilder & Tyson Fury's fight ends in Controversial Draw | BellaNaija

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fought it out in a 12-round match only for it all to end as a draw.

In what most analysts have described as a questionable decision, two judges scored the match for each fighter, while a third had it as a draw.

Telegraph reports that Judge Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-112 for Fury, Alejandro Rochin gave Wilder the match with 115-111, and British judge Phil Edwards scored it a 113-113 draw.

Most analysts had Fury for the win, despite going down twice: in the 9th and 12th rounds. The boxer got back up both times, wearing Wilder out.

Although Wilder retains his WBC heavyweight title with the result, promoter Frank Warren has said he’ll demand “for a rematch which we want in the UK.”
