Deontay Wilder: “I strongly believe that I knocked Tyson Fury out”

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is not satisfied with the way the referee handled the twelfth round of his December bout with Tyson Fury. In front of a noisy crowd of 17.689 at the Staples Center, Wilder and Fury fought a 12-round split decision draw. Mexican judge Alejandro Rochin scored the fight 115-111 for Wilder. Canadian Judge Robert Tapper had it 114-112 for Fury, while Phil Edwards from Britain scored it a 113-113 draw. “I strongly believe I knocked him out. The referee said he went with the spirit of boxing and not the rules, but I don’t understand what that means because he has only got one job and it’s simple — even my one-year-old can do his job — and that is to count to 10,” Wilder told The Mirror.
