Tyson Fury almost completed a remarkable return to the top of world boxing on Saturday night, with his heavyweight clash against Deontay Wilder ending in a controversial split decision draw.
The 30-year-old seemingly controlled the majority of the fight, however, the self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’ did have to survive two knockdowns in an enthralling clash with the WBC champion in Los Angeles.
Fury was knocked to the canvas in the ninth round and the final round, remarkably making his way back to his feet to see out the full 36 minutes of action.
Many fans and pundits believe that Fury dominated the clash despite his knockdowns, however, the judges scored the bout 115-111 in favour of Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113, to the disappointment of the LA crowd.
A rematch between the pair looks extremely likely after the controversial result, however, we’ve decided to see who else the ‘Gypsy King’ could take on next.
