Who really won the boxing match between Wilder and Fury?

Wilder retained his strap after the split decision draw at Staples Centre.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder embrace after their WBC heavyweight championship boxing match, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, in Los Angeles.

Judge Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-110 for Fury, while Alejandro Rochin favoured Wilder 115-111.

"We're on away soil, I was on the ground twice but I truly believe I won that fight, and I think everyone in here did too", Fury said, per the Telegraph. But just when the fight was turning into a one-sided landslide victory in favor of Fury, Wilder turned things around in a hurry.

Wilder at first celebrated with a shimmy only to appear stunned when Fury beat the count and got back on his feet.

That's when both hulking men heard a verdict that didn't satisfy them, but almost guaranteed a rematch of this exciting showdown.

"I had a holy hand upon me tonight", Fury said.

This pairing of heavyweights, who's size was only dwarfed by their colorful personalities, was one that for the most part was controlled by the strategic boxing of Fury, 27, who for long stretches put on a masterclass exhibition of boxing.

"?One hundred? percent we'll do the rematch", said Fury, fighting in the first heavyweight title pay-per-view bout in America since 2002.

Manny Pacquiao, who has won world titles in eight weight classes, added on the social networking site: "Respect to Fury for sticking to his game plan and to Wilder for closing the gap with two huge knockdowns!"

Wilder's 12th-round knockdown proved crucial on the judges' scorecards, but Fury insisted home advantage saved his rival from losing his WBC title. I'm six foot nine and 260 pounds - I don't know anyone on the planet who can move like that. "I came here tonight and I fought my heart out".

"I came out slow". From our side we want that undisputed fight ASAP, and that's Deontay Wilder in April 13 at Wembley. Fury was in a groove, bouncing and moving in and out and not giving Wilder a clear target to hit, even though he carried his left hand very low, nearly below his waist, in an inviting opening for Wilder's big right hand.

In front of a 17,698-strong attendance, both fighters entertained from the opening bell when they both threw threatening punches and Wilder landed a hurtful right as they briefly fought toe-to-toe.

The next two rounds were fairly quiet in nature - though Wilder busted Fury's nose open late in the fourth. He freely admitted, "I was too anxious in trying to get him out of there".

But while the scoring drew criticism, with many arguing that Fury had done enough to win, there was a marked absence of animosity after the bout.
