Wilder, Fury draw in epic heavyweight showdown

Verbals are exchanged at the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder weigh-in

Verbals are exchanged at the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder weigh-in

Tyson Fury, following his Saturday night, December 1, boxing match against Deontay Wilder that ended in a draw, has said that he would donate his $10 million fight purse to help the poor and build houses for homeless people.

"Listen, I stood up for me country", Fury said, "I stood up for me people, me pride, me family name and I represented the United Kingdom and Ireland tonight".

Supporters felt Fury had done enough to win the bout, outboxing the reigning champion despite being knocked to the canvas twice.

"One hundred percent we'll do the rematch", Fury said. I came here tonight and I fought my heart out. He has a great right hand but he wasn't able to put it to bed until the last couple of rounds. Judge Phil Edwards and The Associated Press both scored it a 113-113 draw, with Wilder's knockdowns compensating for Fury's superior technique. "I'm the lineal champion of the world, I'm not just going to lay down and not get back up".

Trainer Dave Coldwell tweeted: "I gave Wilder two 10-8s and one other round".

Wilder came through on offense once more in the championship rounds, with a strong right hand knocking down Fury, who was a split second away from being counted out.

'I feel on top of the world after the best performance of my life. "I did it for you guys".

Republicans hope Democrats can disable Nancy Pelosi
But they could join with other Democratic insurgents to send the election into overtime when the floor would open to new nominees. Brian Higgins of NY changed course and agreed to support Pelosi after a 72-hour effort she initiated to win him over.

Somehow, someway he managed to rise at the exact moment all hope was lost in a moment that properly encapsulated the personal journey that led Fury to the fight.

In terms of the jab, Fury connected with 46 of his 223 attempts, compared to 40 of 248 by his opponent and in power shots, it was 38 from 104 for the Gypsy King, compared with 31 out of 182 for the reigning champion. He did say in the changing room before the fight, "If anyone goes down I will give you chance to prove you're okay". The buildup was the buildup, and we had a great buildup. "That's what we proved tonight, and I'm ready to do it again".

Fury had every reason to be unhappy at the judges' verdict. Fury used his twitchy movement and near-constant feints to disrupt the rhythm of Wilder, whose trademark looping punches rarely found their mark.

Fury arrived to the ring dancing to his entrance music, Freed From Desire, with his large travelling support singing him on the way.

His awkward style and constant feints had Wilder struggling to find the target for much of the night, apart from his two notable successes. But Fury went down again - and almost everybody thought it was for good. Wilder's got lightning fists and he has dynamite in his hands.

As several former heavyweights had predicted beforehand, the longer the fight went on, the more Fury looked in control.
