    Tonight the Staples Center in Los Angeles was the site of the big showdown between undefeated heavyweights Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) and Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KOs). The match between the reigning WBC heavyweight champion and the former lineal heavyweight champion was the biggest heavyweight fight in Los Angeles since Lennox Lewis opposed Vitali Klitschko in this ring in 2003.

    And it didn't disappoint. Take away two punches and Tyson Fury would be heading back to England with Wilder's belt. But those two punches put the Brit on the canvas -- in round nine and again in round 12 when he went down hard -- and those two 10-8 rounds enabled Deontay Wilder to salvage a draw.

    The scorecards were 115-111 Wilder, 114-110 Fury, and 113-113.

    UNDERCARD

    IBF/WBA junior middleweight champion Jarrett Hurd (23-0, 16 KOs) knocked out Jason Welborn (24-7) in the fourth round with a body punch.

    Luis Ortiz (30-1, 26 KOs) knocked down Travis Kauffman several times and finally stopped him in the 10th round.

    England’s Joe Joyce (7-0, 7 KOs) knocked Joe Hanks in the first round with a right and left hook to win the WBA Continental heavyweight title.

    Robert Guerrero (34-6-1, 19 KOs) returned to boxing after a short retirement and floored Hungary's Robert Mate (28-13) once in the first round and twice in the second round of their welterweight fight to win by knockout.

    Julian "the Rock" Williams (26-1, 16 KOs) knocked out Francisco Castro (28-9, 23 Kos) in the second round of their super welterweight fight.

    Marsellos Wilder (3-0) floored David Damore (1-5-3) in round two with a five-punch barrage to win by unanimous decision after four cruiserweight rounds. 40-35 on all three cards.

    One of the scorecards was miscalculated and read wrong -- although it would not have changed the outcome.

    The judge that favored Fury actually had it 114-112, not 114-110.

    I feel fortunate to have gotten the "push."

    How did you have it scored?

      I had it 116-110 for Fury. I only gave Wilder the two rounds he scored the knockdowns. There were a couple close rounds that I could see an argument for Wilder but by and large thought Fury controlled the action.

        Fury shut Wilder out.

        An old school boxing lesson.

        thank God I hedged it with a small bit on the draw.

        Fury didn’t lose.

        I didn’t lose any money or gain anything so it’s ok but Fury will get the people’s respect for this one

          Judges mucked up my prediction. 😎

          Wilder's knockdowns didn't help either.

            Watching on TV all the showtime crew were giving every round but 1 to Fury until the 9th round knockdown and then only gave the 12th to Wilder. Thus according to them Fury won 9 rounds at 10-9 and Wilder won 3 rounds 10-8 X2 and a 10-9. However, I think Wilder could have been given several other rounds. The crew fell into “group think” and confirmation bias and didn’t realize some rounds could have reasonably gone either way. They probably dragged listeners with them. This is the problem with all boxing announcers in this day and age. They make observations and spend so much time agreeing with each other that they selectively “see” what they “say”.

              Good observation ! That's why someone who aspires to be a boxing judge needs to practice on TV fights with the sound off !

              Dan Rafael, who is very sharp, had it 114-112 for Wilder and I'm guessing that his score jibed with many others seated around him.

                Now I can't remember what the fight was, but I saw an upload on one of those sites. There was no audio from commentators, only the referee, the corners and the crowd. It was the best of both worlds: All the TV camera angles, none of the influence of TV commentators. That plus a "Lederman card" is the perfect combination for me. No disrespect to commentators of course!

              Team Fury was mocking Rafael's partisan score this morning.

                In a weird way, I don't have a problem with the decision but I also think the "non draw" cards were both too wide. Essentially what it boils down to is Fury won 8 rounds and Wilder won 4 with 2 knockdowns, I think that is fair and can reasonably get to that.

                  Exactly. I got to 113-113 and feel it's ok.

                    This is why such fights (PPV "unifications") should be 15 rounds.

                    Both men brought their own claim to the title to the ring.

                    Both men left with same after boxing failed to settle the matter.

                      If Fury had another round(or really went for it after the knockdown) he could have Ko'ed Wilder ..the man was exhausted in the 12th

                        Yes he was. He was also hurt buy a right, but the moronic announcers were too busy in mass hysteria to catch it.
