Stop It, Tyson Fury Did Not Earn a Win Against Deontay Wilder

One of the biggest fights of the year will take place this evening in Los Angeles, as undefeated boxers Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury square off for the "Bronze Bomber's" WBC heavyweight title.

Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs) was making his eighth title defense. The American teased that depending on how this fight with Fury goes, he may opt another fight with him rather than face Joshua.

"The Gypsy King" has been through a lot since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in November of 2015, as he explained to Joe Rogan in a recent interview.

Fury looked finished when Wilder put him flat on his back with two minutes left in the fight, but he rose and made it to the bell.

Wilder almost stopped Fury in the 12th round with a hard knockdown, but Fury survived and stormed back for a memorable round of the year candidate in a fight that is likely to see a sequel.

Wilder edged forward menacingly in the fourth to deliver a crisp right hand, but Fury continued to frustrate the Alabama man with his stiff jab in the fifth.

The judges scored the bout 115-111 for Wilder, 114-110 for Fury and 113-113.

Both fighters are now expected to meet again in a rematch, delaying the prospect of a fight between Wilder and unified champion Anthony Joshua for the right to become the undisputed champion.
