Tyson Fury will go into Saturday's blockbuster heavyweight title fight with Deontay Wilder with a weight advantage of almost 50 pounds.

The ring is ready for Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder to clash in the WBC Belt heavyweight title fight this afternoon.

The fight would last the full twelve rounds, with the judges eventually scoring it a draw:: 115-111 Wilder, 114-110 Fury, 113-113.

Wilder got the 10-8 score he needed to catch Fury on Edwards' scorecards, which ultimately meant the fight was announced as a split decision draw.

Wilder, the more aggressive of the two fighters early on, quickly moved into an early lead.

Since the announcement of the bout, the debate continues to rage on to determine which style will gain the upper hand and emerge victoriously with the victor sitting atop the division with the hopes of securing a future mega-fight with the heavyweight division's other kingpin Anthony Joshua.

A punch to the top of Fury's head shockingly put him down in the ninth, but he bounced up quickly.

Even oil managed to regain a little ground after the gut-wrenching slide of recent weeks. That left the dollar a shade firmer at 97.089 against a basket of currencies.

Even though Wilder made a throat-slashing gesture and mouthed "It's over", Fury beat the count and went back to work. "I came out slow".

The champion scored two knockdowns in the contest but struggled throughout to find the target against the tricky and tactically astute Fury, who used his superior boxing skills to control proceedings for long spells.

Until a sensational final round knockdown from Wilder, Fury appeared to be heading towards what would have been a remarkable upset. I thought I won the fight.

The opening rounds were to Fury's liking. A hard overhand right to the side of Fury's head dropped the Englishman for the first time in the fight.

Manny Pacquiao is looking forward to seeing a second chapter in the Wilder-Fury story after watching "two great heavyweights trading shots".

In the ninth, Wilder found success when he walked the challenger down, landing with a right that put Fury on the backseat of his trousers.

The fight attracted the celebrity attention expected in Hollywood from actors and athletes alike.
