Fury dismayed by split decision


Tyson Fury claims 'the world knows who won' after his WBC heavyweight title fight against Deontay Wilder ended in a draw.

Fury was knocked down twice but managed to get back up on both occasions to take Wilder the distance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, only for the judges to be split over who was the winner.

The fight was scored 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113 but many felt that the Briton should have been declared the winner.

I'm what you call a professional athlete, who loves to box. Slip and slide, show my skill, 6ft9 and 260lbs," Fury told BT Sport Box Office.

"I don't know anybody on the planet who could move like that.

"That man is a fearsome puncher, but I avoided his shots tonight. Listen, I'm not going to take anything from Wilder, he's a great champion and a great man. I thank him for the opportunity. The world knows the truth. I thought I won the fight. I thought I should have took the belt home."

Speaking immediately after the match both fighters expressed an interest in a second fight and Fury's promote Frank Warren is expected to contact the WBC to demand a rematch.

"Listen 100 per cent we'll do the rematch, but we're going to go away, recalculate, see what's going to happen, get back together," Fury said.

"I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won the fight, and I believe every man in here thought I won that fight.

"But I'm showing total professionalism here. I'm a true champion, a true warrior. I went to Germany to fight Klitschko, I came to America to fight Deontay Wilder.

"He's a fighting man, thank you for the opportunity. Bless you and your family, god bless you, and god bless America. The 'Gypsy King' has returned."
