Tyson Fury goes full Undertaker following THAT hook from Deontay Wilder

Boxer Tyson Fury Draws Comparison To The Undertaker In Knockdown Comeback

'It's not been any secret what I've been doing out of the ring, ' Fury said.

The next two rounds were fairly quiet in nature - though Wilder busted Fury's nose open late in the fourth.

"One hundred percent we'll do the rematch".

Despite his view of the decision he indicated that a rematch could well be in Las Vegas rather a football ground in England by saying: 'I would have no problem coming back here. "But I don't want to take anything away from Wilder, the decision was not his fault and he's a fantastic fighter".

Thought Wilder had scored two knockdowns, it was still a major surprise to see the fight finish as a split draw.

"Tyson's the No1 heavyweight in the world, the people's champion, the victor of that fight".

"I'm not going to let the decision ruin what was a good fight".

He had overcome two desperate moments, in the ninth and 12th rounds, where he was knocked down heavily.

'And I wanted more than anything tonight to show the world that it can be done.

He said on Sportsweek: "When you are at a boxing event only three people can be the judges because they are fully concentrated in the actions".

But in the widely expected rematch with Fury, the 33-year-old "Bronze Bomber" will likely need to win to get his shot.

Fury, who vacated his titles in 2016, also thought he had done enough to beat his opponent. "We're both warriors, but with those two drops, I think I won the fight". I'm very happy with the fight, but put it this way, if I didn't get knocked down twice in that fight, on one of the judge's scorecards I'd have still lost, so he needs banning from boxing forever because he clearly can't judge. The buildup was the buildup, and we had a great buildup. He did say in the changing room before the fight, "If anyone goes down I will give you chance to prove you're okay". After Joshua-Wilder negotiations fell apart, the always opportunistic Fury sped up his comeback plans to call out Wilder and play spoiler on the division's best-laid plans.

Wilder shimmied his shoulders in celebration with referee Jack Reiss about halfway through his 10-count when Fury, the British heavyweight, did something wholly unexpected.

He didn't look troubled once on his feet, but how he managed to get back up after being knocked down in the 12th is anyone's guess.

Fury's extraordinary Lazarus act however ensured the fight would go to the judges.

Tyson Fury says a "holy hand" brought him back from the 12th round knockdown. But Fury went down again - and almost everybody thought it was for good.

As several former heavyweights had predicted beforehand, the longer the fight went on, the more Fury looked in control.
