Deontay Wilder Vs Tyson Fury II Scorecards At Time Of The TKO Revealed
Deontay Wilder only won one round on one judges score card after the scoring up to the seventh round was revealed following Tyson Fury's stoppage victory.
14 months ago Fury claimed that judges had ruined his dream comeback, when they scored the first fight against Wilder as a draw, before Saturday night he'd claimed he would knock the Bronze Bomber thus not need the judges.
He stuck to his word, twice knocking Wilder down before the American's team threw in the towel in the seventh, but the scorecards revealed he was miles ahead anyway.
Fury knocked his opponent down twice, in the third and fifth rounds, meaning he automatically won both those rounds 10-8.
The undefeated British boxer would have had one point deducted in the fifth, after being warned by the referee for using his elbows, making it a 9-8 round in the final calculations.
All three judges gave him the opening round but Glenn Feldman gave a tighter second to Wilder, despite the challenger coming on strong in the finishing salvos of that round, before the third, fourth, fifth and sixth were all given to the 31-year-old from England on all three cards.

The first fight was fought with a Mexican judge, a Canadian judge and a British judge scoring, with the British judge the one to score the fight a draw.
For the rematch it was three American judges scoring and ahead of the fight former heavyweight champion David Haye had expressed concerns, saying, "I do not know how there are three US judges, that is crazy.
"How can there be a British fighter versus an American fighter and three American judges? It makes zero sense and I don't know how it got agreed. He really needs a British judge.
"That should have been taken care of, I do not know how that slipped through the net.
"There should have been one American, one Brit and one neutral. Wilder would never have agreed to three British judges."
Haye also expressed he felt that Fury's best chance of winning was on points but Fury proved his prediction, that he would get the knockout win, was correct.
Fury really has made a career out of proving people wrong and he did it in a huge way on Saturday night, with no need for the judges.
