Tyson Fury serenades media with 'American Pie' song in press conference

Tyson Fury serenades media with 'American Pie' song in press conference”

"Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet".

However, in the ninth round, Wilder finally made his mark, dropping Fury with a short hook that had the fans on their feet. Judge Phil Edwards and The Associated Press scored it a 113-113 draw, with Wilder's knockdowns compensating for Fury's superior technique.

Wilder's 12th-round knockdown proved crucial on the judges' scorecards, but Fury insisted home advantage saved his rival from losing his WBC title.

In 2015, Fury shocked the world when he won the titles of the three most important ranking boxing organisations, the IBF, WBO and WBA by beating long-reigning Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in a unanimous decision.

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

And Fury wants him out of the sport and has told him to go to Specsavers.

Wilder, wearing a new gold mask and crown, was accompanied by J-Rock to the ring whilst fireworks went off and trumpeters played him into the arena.

Instead, the main talking point from a thrilling contest was Fury's miraculous recovery after being knocked down by Wilder in the 12th round.

The first half of the fight was extremely hard to call with so many tight rounds.

Wilder vs. Fury tests the raw power of the 6-foot-7 Wilder against the unmatched size and mobility of the 6-foot-9 Fury in the most significant heavyweight event in the U.S.in more than 15 years.

During the twelfth and final round between long-out-of-the-game Tyson Fury and now undefeated Deontay Wilder, Fury was dealt a vicious combination of blows, culminating in a hook that initially seemed to knock him out cold. He looked remarkably agile during the Showtime pay-per-view broadcast and provided most of the early entertainment with his showboating, clowning and skillful out-boxing as Wilder swung and missed again and again.

"At the end of the day that [a rematch] is down to Tyson, but from my perspective I'd love the rematch", he said. The Brit though finished the round strongly and goaded his opponent by dropping his hands and goading the American.

"That man is a fearsome puncher and I was able to avoid that".

The WBC will sit down in the coming weeks to discuss the matter and vote on whether to force Wilder into a rerun with Fury. "I was too hesitant", Wilder said.
