Tyson Fury Vs Deontay Wilder Scorecard Revealed After Knockout Win For Fury

Tyson Fury was head on all three scorecards before he ended his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder in the 11th round, after an instant classic.

Fury's knockout of Wilder finally ended the discussion after a draw and a stoppage finish that the American has continued to dispute until this day.

There was no questions after the third fight, although it wasn't as easy as some might have thought, with the undefeated Brit hitting the deck twice in the fourth round.

That caused a 10-7 score from all three judges, in Wilder's favour, and the scorecard revealed that two of the three judges had the champ recovering enough to win the following round.

The cards show that after being knocked down it was Fury who found his feet better than his opponent, who had been knocked down in the third after a quick start.

The 33-year-old dominated most of the rounds in the second half of the fight and at least fans can be safe in the knowledge that, had it gone to the scorecards, they'd have seen the correct result.

However, there was still some odd scoring from the judges at ringside, including the fact that one of them seems to have missed a knockdown.

Steve Weisfeld scored the 10th 10-9 to Fury but he had sent his opponent to the mat for the second time in the fight and it should have been scored 10-8.

The ninth round was also bizarrely scored to Wilder by Tim Cheatham, despite domination from the eventual winner, even if the American did rally at the end of the round.

Fury was unhappy after the draw in the first fight between the pair, despite being knocked down twice, claiming they'd cost him boxing's greatest comeback.

Last year Fury had made sure he didn't need the judges and once again he left no room to be stopped from retaining his world title and undefeated record.
