Why Tyson Fury held tongue on controversial boxing robbery

"We're on away soil, I got knocked down twice - but I still believe I won the fight", Fury said.

"He didn't want it for a reason: because Deontay Wilder is the most fiercest puncher in boxing history, in heavyweight division history".

Fury somehow gathered his wits, rose and made it to the final bell. "I was too hesitant", Wilder said. The judges scored it: 115-111 to Wilder, 114-112 to Fury and 113-113.

He becomes only the second to achieve that feat, but it could have been different.

Anthony Joshua has got the bulk of the heavyweight belts but he doesn't have the respect of his top rivals Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

Surely thinking his eighth successful defence of his WBC strap was secure, Wilder began to celebrate in the ring.

But in the widely expected rematch with Fury, the 33-year-old "Bronze Bomber" will likely need to win to get his shot.

Take a look at this. Fury said. "I was telling my brothers and my family to keep quiet".

Trump Says Some Good Signs on Talks With China
But, at the same time, he cautioned the USA was prepared to forge ahead with the new tariffs in the belief China would fold first. Trump complained about the quality of his English-language translation during Macri's Spanish-language speech.

"The world knows who the real WBC champion is", added the former heavyweight champion, who dethroned Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.

The decision was highly controversial as the majority of people thought that Fury got it done with 115-111 on the scorecards.

Fury's incredible recovery inspired multiple references to The Undertaker, the WWE icon who also dramatically got up from a coffin and after a knockdown.

The British boxer was the better man throughout, making the American miss over and over. "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. I'd love to see it in the UK. "I don't know if Fury can be better".

The punch wasn't the biggest of the fight, but Fury was stunned - and he responded by getting up and raising his aggression in an exciting round.

Turning to and looking into the camera, he continued: "Every body out there who has the same problems I've been suffering with - I did that for you guys".

"The ref said, 'Go left, go right".

Fury's personal story was well-documented as he ballooned upwards of 400 pounds, fell into addiction of alcohol and drugs and almost succumbed to a dark depression in which he was resigned to killing himself through excess in order to numb the pain. Everyone from Chadwick Boseman, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Shaquille O'Neal to boxing stars Gennady Golovkin and Mikey Garcia gathered for the marquee heavyweight bout. The man himself credited God with helping him to continue the fight.
