Fury Aims Funny Dig At Wilder Referee During United Clash

The scorecards caused major controversy after Fury survived a final round knockdown, only to be denied a win by the judges.

Alejandro Rochin's scorecard was heavily in favour of Wilder at 115-111, while Phil Edwards had 113-113 and Robert Tapper scored 114-112 in favour of Fury.

"They both moved into the 12th round exhausted but not extremely hurt".

"Of course [I feel a sense of injustice about the verdict] but I'm not going to go on about it forever, life goes on", Fury said to BT Sport ahead of Manchester United's fixture against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Fury had been floor by a deadly right hand, left hook combination from Wilder that hit him on both temples.

"Wilder getting rinsed as per", one wrote.

It appears Wilder and Fury are set to have a rematch and will keep Anthony Joshua, the IBF, WBA and WBO champion, waiting on his hopes of completely unifying the division.

"He rolled over and got up and said "I'm okay! Jack I'm OK" or whatever".

"I said, "Do you want to continue?', he said 'Yes" and put his arms on my shoulders". I pushed his arms off and said walk over there, come back to me and show me you're OK.

It looks like we're going to have to wait a while longer to see an undisputed heavyweight champion.


But he scoffed at that: "The 10 count doesn't mean 10 seconds. That's what I was doing". As The Ring's report explains, that figure doesn't include pay-per-view buys in the United Kingdom - of which there were certainly many - or digital purchases made on platforms such as Playstation 4. He is in camp now in America, and he would love to fight Fury, he would.
