Tyson Fury called Anthony Joshua out after drawing against Deontay Wilder

Wilder retains WBC heavyweight belt after battling to draw against Fury

Tyson Fury's trainer Ben Davison branded the decision to score the Briton's heavyweight title fight with Deontay Wilder a draw as "disgraceful".

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.

The 30-year-old felt he did enough to secure the victory despite being knocked down twice by Wilder - once in the ninth and again in the final round.

Tyson Fury serenaded the gathered media with a rendition of "American Pie" after fighting to a draw with Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles.

The contest was scored 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113.

Fury was gradually building a convincing lead into the fight's second half as he landed with several straight rights, even when Wilder's occasional successes looked the more hurtful.

"We are two great champions", he said.

This truly is one of the most anticipated heavyweight title showdowns we've seen in quite some time, and below is all the information you need to catch the historic fight on Saturday.

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

Other sportsmen paid tribute to the efforts of both fighters, with former England and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand saluting Fury for how he has dealt with his personal demons. I know when I try to get them out of there the plan goes.

This pairing of heavyweights, who's size was only dwarfed by their colorful personalities, was one that for the most part was controlled by the strategic boxing of Fury, 27, who for long stretches put on a masterclass exhibition of boxing.

"We're on away soil, I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won that fight", said Fury. I wanted to show the world it's possible.

Fury's incredible recovery inspired multiple references to The Undertaker, the WWE icon who also dramatically got up from a coffin and after a knockdown. "We poured our hearts out tonight". I rushed my punches.

"We gave each other all we've got", Wilder said. "I was too hesitant", Wilder said. The Alabama native crashed a right hand just above Fury's ear in the eighth, sending him to the canvas. That's a good thing for the heavyweight boxing division. A hard overhand right to the side of Fury's head dropped the Englishman for the first time in the fight.

"I really thought I had him out of there", Wilder said afterwards.

The next two rounds were fairly quiet in nature - though Wilder busted Fury's nose open late in the fourth.
