Deontay Wilder Posts 'Video Proof' That Tyson Fury Didn't Make 10 Count
Tyson Fury somehow managed to climb from the canvas and finish his bout with Deontay Wilder after a thunderous 12th round knockdown, but his opponent is clearly not happy with referee Jack Reiss' ten count.
The 'Gypsy King' battled back to give the performance of a lifetime at the Staples Centre and although he didn't beat Wilder in Los Angeles, the 30-year-old can hold his head high.
Mental health problems were a big factor in his life.
Fury ballooned in weight, picked up alcohol and contemplated suicide, so to comeback and produce such a valiant performance was testament to the man himself.
After overcoming mental health issues, depression and nearly 3 years out of the ring, we believe @Tyson_Fury overcame @BronzeBomber tonight too.
It sounds like a lot of you agree.

In fact, many fans were convinced that Fury should have won after dominating in the early rounds, but Wilder has backed himself in recent hours, posting the following clip on social media.
"Keep the vids coming for The Sick MFs That hate I won, The Blind MFs that can't face reality and the MFs that just don't want to see US Succeed."
Here's the clip that apparently proves that Fury shouldn't have seen the final bell:

It didn't take long for Fury fans to have their say...

10 count and 10 seconds are two different things #youdontknowshitaboutboxing- Miahh (@JamiahPlentie) December 5, 2018
In the ninth round Wilder caught Fury with a left-right combination that rocked the Gypsy King to the floor for a seven count but it was the big right in the 12th that should have finished the fight.
On the way down, the American caught the challenger with a left and Fury seemed to be knocked down and out.
But somehow Fury answered a nine count, to the disbelief of pretty much everyone: Should he have been counted out, though?
You can be the judge of that one.
