KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The pair squared off at Los Angeles' Staple Centre on Saturday for a WBC world heavyweight title fight that ended in a controversial draw.

Judge Alejandro Rochin, of Mexico, scored the fight 115-111 for Wilder, Canadian judge Robert Tapper had it 114-112 for Fury and British judge Phil Edwards had it 113-113 as both fighters remained unbeaten.

The fight followed the expected script of Fury, returning to the ring a little over three years since he defeated Wladimir Klitschko to win the lineal heavyweight championship, holding a high guard and staying mobile, with Wilder aiming to hone in a concussive right hand that had seen him knockout 39 of 40 opponents up until Fury.

In the aftermath of the fight, while conducting an interview in the ring, Fury said "There's another certain heavyweight out there", before impersonating a chicken in an attempt to aggravate Joshua.

Fury raised his hands at the end of the 11th, though his celebrations appeared premature when he was dropped again, a right hand doing the damage before a left hook caught him flush while already on the way down. Listen, I'm not going to take anything from Wilder, he's a great champion and a great man.

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder. There weren't any more big punches after that but the fact Fury was even able to get back up from such a vicious knockdown spoke volumes.

However, in the final round Deontay Wilder was able to floor Tyson Fury with a massive punch.

The champion scored two knockdowns in the contest but struggled throughout to find the target against the tricky and tactically astute Fury, who used his superior boxing skills to control proceedings for long spells.

Wilder, the more aggressive of the two fighters early on, quickly moved into an early lead.
