The Moment Tyson Fury Came Back From The Dead In Round 12

A controversial draw was the verdict from the judges at the Deontay Wilder/Tyson FuryWBC Heavyweight title bout in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

In 2015, Fury shocked the world when he won the titles of the three most important ranking boxing organisations, the IBF, WBO and WBA by beating long-reigning Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in a unanimous decision. An unknown WWE enthusiast even added The Undertaker's horror music theme to Tyson Fury's comeback clip.

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.

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

"I fought back from suicide and mental health and depression and anxiety and I wanted more than anything tonight to show the world that it can be done", he said. The second time it looked like Fury was out for the count after a left hook but he somehow rose to his feet but the two knockdowns left the fight to be a draw.

The only person Fury didn't have kind words for was unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs), who failed to finalize a much-hyped bout against Wilder that would've crowned the first four-belt undisputed champion in heavyweight history.

Fury added: "That man is a fearsome puncher, and I was able to avoid that".

During the twelfth and final round between long-out-of-the-game Tyson Fury and now undefeated Deontay Wilder, Fury was dealt a vicious combination of blows, culminating in a hook that initially seemed to knock him out cold.

Trump's G-20 tariff talk: Why everyone is listening
As the leaders arrived, Argentine security forces began locking down the central business district in Buenos Aires on Thursday. Trump on Wednesday expressed "deep concern" over the weekend incident near Crimea, and has threatened to cancel the meeting.


"I said, 'I'm sorry what's happened to you.' I said, 'But you offer me the fight, ' I said, 'I will not turn it down".

The punch wasn't the biggest of the fight, but Fury was stunned - and he responded by getting up and raising his aggression in an exciting round.

The WBC champion was, as expected, doing a lot of the coming forward but was being made to miss over and over again by Fury.

"And if I can come back from where I've come from then you can do it too".

Wilder managed to turn things up and fire back in the seventh round, as a couple of flurries forced Fury's back to the ropes and would've put him in more danger if not for clinching.

"We are two great champions". Asked at the post fight press conference whether it was Jesus Christ himself who woke him up and raised him off the canvas, the typically verbose Fury was short on explanations.

Until Wilder's sensational final round knockdown, Fury appeared to be heading for what would have been a remarkable upset. Wilder's got lightning fists and he has dynamite in his hands.

Fury's personal story was well-documented as he ballooned upwards of 400 pounds, fell into addiction of alcohol and drugs and almost succumbed to a dark depression in which he was resigned to killing himself through excess in order to numb the pain.
