Former undisputed World heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis was sat ringside and was in no doubt that his fellow Brit was the deserved victor of the contest, stating that he was reminded of his draw with Evander Holyfield in 1999 at Madison Square Garden. "The world knows I won the fight". In fact, everybody thought the fight was over. When you get two warriors you get a great fight.

Frank Warren, who promotes Fury, says that regardless of the result this past weekend, a return bout should take place but he added a caveat. He's a natural born fighter. For viewers in the United Kingdom, you can watch the match through BT Sport Box Office streaming app for £19.95.

There were plenty more backing Fury on social media.

Still, the knockdown scuppered his hopes of becoming a two-time world champion, with the controversial outcome paving the way for a lucrative rematch in 2019.

"I hope I did you all proud after almost three years out of the ring", Fury said. "I was never going to be knocked out tonight". "I'm being a total professional here". "He was just telling me great fight, he loves me, and thank you for the opportunity". He is a fearsome fighter.

Wilder said his two knockdowns meant he "definitely won the fight".

"At the end of the day that [a rematch] is down to Tyson, but from my perspective I'd love the rematch", he said. "We need to do it again".

"I believe the fight right now the fight with Fury is a stronger fight and probably more logical to happen because, look, he still dropped the guy twice". Wilder detonated a short right cross on Fury's face and then followed it up with a left hook to the jaw.

"I saw his eyes roll into the back of his head".

"When I was down, I wasn't just down on that canvas for me and my family", Fury said.

"We're on away soil", he said.

Deontay Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight crown here yesterday after battling to a split decision draw against Britain's Tyson Fury in a pulsating 12-round battle.

A rematch is already being talked about in the UK.

Birmingham's Welborn, 32, aggressively came forward early on and peppered the IBF and WBA world champion in the fourth round with his trademark combinations. And big shots are exactly what he got.
