Tyson Fury was denied a remarkable victory over Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles on Saturday night, after a controversial split decision draw at the Staples Center.

The heavyweight clash, which could well go down as one of the greatest of all time, went the full 12 rounds, with Fury being knocked down to the canvas twice.

Many fans and pundits believe that despite Wilder knocking Fury down twice, the Brit should have came out victorious and claimed the WBC title, however, the judges scored the bout 115-111 in Wilder’s favour, 114-112 (originally read out as 110) for Fury and 113-113.

The self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’, who weighed three stone heavier than the WBC champion, was stepping in the ring for just the third time since his lengthy lay off, but showed no signs of ring rust in the opening stages.

With a rematch the most likely next step for both fighters, we’ve decided to take a look back at just how the highly anticipated clash unfolded.
