Lennox Lewis blasts judges after Tyson Fury is denied stunning comeback win

But his courageous effort against Deontay Wilder was not enough to seal a fairytale ending with the three judges unable to split the two and scoring it a draw after 12 pulsating rounds.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's "contentious" draw has "changed the whole dynamic of the heavyweight division", says BBC boxing commentator Mike Costello.

Wilder, the undefeated WBC champion retained his title after squaring off against undefeated challenger and former WBA, WBO, IBO, and unofficial lineal champion Fury, in front of nearly 18,000 people at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fought to a split draw Saturday night, with Wilder retaining his WBC heavyweight title after knocking down his British challenger twice.

One judge scored the fight 115-111 to Wilder, another 114-112 to Fury and the third had it 113-113. In his worst state, Fury was almost 400 pounds. "We're the best in the world".

Fury opened with a hard right, but Wilder flushed him with a devastating right-left combination that put Fury down. "It was a great fight and let's do it again". I don't know what fight he was watching.

"In two or three weeks, I think they will defend very well, and to play against them in a month will be a problem for every team".

"I think that we were a little tense", he said.

The new approach will require Amazon to hire people focused on selling and servicing hardware. That fact may be as important a motivator for Outposts' debut as customer demand.

"One hundred percent we'll do the rematch", Fury said.

'It's not been any secret what I've been doing out of the ring, ' Fury said.

However in the ninth round, Wilder finally made his mark, dropping Fury with a short hook that had the fans on their feet.

"I came here and fought my heart out - he [Wilder] is the second best heavyweight behind me".

Fury's jab did a lot of damage and kept Wilder at bay.

"I should have won the fight but I'm not going to complain. The respect was mutual".

With the vast majority of the fans inside Staples Center and across social media believing Fury had done more than enough to win, the fight ended without a victor. But early in the ninth, Fury went down when he absorbed a shot to the top of the head from Wilder. They will nearly certainly earn much more in a rematch of the most significant heavyweight world title fight in the United States since Lennox Lewis, in what turned out to be his final fight, stopped fellow Hall of Famer Vitali Klitschko in the sixth round of an epic slugfest to retain the title in 2003, coincidentally also at Staples Center. "That's what we proved tonight, and I'm ready to do it again".

"This has been a great night for the sport, for heavyweight boxing, and heavyweight boxing in the U.S.", said Costello.
